The Deputy Minister of Transport considers Sakhalin the future eastern trade haven of Russia
The participants of the "Islands" forum discussed the development of Sakhalin transport with Gennady Kotlikov, Deputy Minister of Transport and Roads of the Sakhalin Region. He spoke in detail about the plans and prospects for the development of various transport areas of Sakhalin and discussed with the participants the prospects for creating a tunnel-bridge crossing the island-mainland.
- We will be able to talk about the expediency of building the crossing after the rewiring of the Sakhalin railway to all-Russian standards is completed. After that, Sakhalin can become an important stage in trade between Asia and Europe - it will unload the ports of Primorye and the Khabarovsk Territory, and also guarantee faster transit. - stressed the deputy minister.
In addition, Gennady Kotlikov drew the attention of the audience to the expediency of creating an exclusively railway crossing - now there are not enough conditions and resources for ensuring the functioning of the automobile infrastructure either on Sakhalin or on the mainland. Provide the needs of car owners will have to have new ferries that will start to operate in the next few years.
According to the calculations of specialists, the ships of the CNF11 project will replace worn out and largely obsolete Sakhalin and will be able to use the existing infrastructure in the ports of Kholmsk and Vanino, told TIA Ostrov in the press service of the forum.
