Russian rail monopoly builds up investment in Komi’s infrastructures



Russia’s rail monopoly, RZD, will build up investments in Komi’s rail infrastructures, press service of the region’s Head Sergei Gaplikov said after the official had a meeting with the Northern Railway’s Head Valery Tanayev on Friday.

"For 2019, RZD has planned to invest 6.795 billion rubles ($103.5 million) in development of Komi’s rail infrastructures and equipment," the press service said. "This will include investments in further projecting of infrastructures along the Northern Railway to satisfy growing cargo under the Northern Latitudinal Railway project and in construction of a rail terminal in Sosnogorsk."

According to the Northern Railway’s head, the new investment projects will favor building up the gross regional product and tax returns.

The regional head pointed to many important projects, which began in 2018 and will continue in 2019.

"We can see good results in construction of a new rail terminal in Sosnogorsk [due to be over in late 2019 - TASS]," he said. "The rail transportation has grown by 10%."

"With construction of the Northern Latitudinal Railway most cargoes will be transported across Komi, which will add to the investments we discuss today," he continued. "Besides, it will be an important step in the economic development."

In 2018, RZD invested in projects in Komi more than 2.76 billion rubles ($42 million).

About the Northern Latitudinal RailwayThe Northern Latitudinal Railway will be 707 km long. Investments in the project, which began in 2018, are estimated at more than 200 billion rubles ($3 billion). This will be the first concessional project ever in Russian rail construction.

The railway will connect the Northern and Sverdlov railways to become an element in the Arctic transport system and infrastructure, which will serve further development of the Russian Arctic zone’s resource potential. Besides, the new line will take a part of cargo, which is now transported along the Sverdlov and Trans-Siberian railways. Thus, the Northern Railway’s cargo turnover in Komi will grow by 9.5 million tonnes a year, offering about 1,000 new jobs in the region.
