The 2017 investment programme at Russian Railways amounts to 459.5 billion roubles.
The Company implements the investment programme as one of the directions to achieve its strategic goals and objectives.
A significant part of the investment in 2017 is aimed at implementing projects of national importance and which are related to the execution of assignments tasked by the Government of the Russian Federation and the President of the Russian Federation and whose implementation is carried out with the participation of state support.
In 2017, work will continue on modernisation projects on the Baikal-Amur Main Line and the Trans-Siberian, the complex reconstruction of the Mezhdurechensk-Taishet section, the development of the Moscow transport hub, the renovation of the railway infrastructure on the approaches to the ports of the Azovo-Black Sea basin, the construction of the Prokhorovka-Zhuravka-Chertkovo-Bataisk railway line (a new line between Zhuravka-Millerovo) and the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway line.
These measures have a high degree of budgetary efficiency and a positive influence on the economy of the country as a whole, including on the utilisation of construction capacities and job creation.
In 2017, projects on capacity development are also continuing, including the reconstruction of the Mga-Gatchina-Veimarn-Ivangorod section, the development of the Tobolsk-Surgut-Korotchaevo stretch, the construction and reconstruction of artificial structures, the construction of second tracks and the development of sorting stations.
As part of the implementation of the investment programme of Russian Railways in 2017, projects are being implemented to ensure the safety of the transportation process, including measures to update automation and telemechanics devices, electrification and power supply and the renewal of fixed assets on the locomotive side.
These projects are aimed at the effective development of railway lines, reducing infrastructure costs and increasing the capacity to create new transportation and logistics products (speed, reliability of infrastructure services and increased through capacity).
In order to improve transport accessibility, the company continues to implement projects to upgrade the fixed assets of the passenger side (suburban and long-distance).
In 2017, the Company is also continuing to implement the programme for the renewal of traction and motorcar rolling stock.
In addition, projects related to research and development, social development and contributions to the charter capital of other companies are being implemented.
The development and updating of rail transport infrastructure is a prerequisite for ensuring Russia's balanced economic development, forming an internal production base, realising the country's industrial potential, expanding foreign economic relations and ensuring the integrity and security of the state.
Russian Railways also pays particular attention to increasing the transparency of investment activities.
Since 2013, procedures have been introduced for independent and public technological and price audit of investment projects that are applied on an ongoing basis.
