61 milliard rubles are laid into the federal targeted program for building of the bridge across the Ob River between the towns Salekhard and Labytnangy. These funds are foreseen in the project of the federal budget for 2015. There is an instruction given by the chairperson of the government – next year to start fulfillment of this project.
This information was given by the director of transport and road economy of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Dmitriy Varakin on the briefing in Salekhard. As he notes, there are some debatable moments: who will build, on which scheme, as many of them are suggested. Now the most optimal scheme is being chosen because rise of the dollar.
According to the words of the head of the department, Yamal suggested many variants for fulfillment of the project of the Northern Latitudinal Route, which included building of the bridge. All of them suggest attracting private investors. Besides, there are many participants of high level: the Russian Railways, Gazprom, the Ministry for transport. It is difficult to bring them all to the common denominator, as Dmitriy Varakin explains. On the level of the government of Yamal everything was done, now the word to those, who are above. He thinks that soon it will be known who and when will start building.
As Dmitriy Varakin notes, the project proved its necessity. Today the junction of the Trans-Siberian Railway in the district of Tyumen, Surgut and Yekaterinburg is overloaded. To reconstruct it the Russian Railways need more than 300 milliard rubles. And the Yamal line of the Northern Latitudinal Route will allow the company to remove the burden, because the bigger part of hydrocarbons is transported towards Surgut and further to the north. At availability of the bridge, transportation would go on the Northern railroad line, which is not loaded now; also the railroad approach to the port will appear. The issue of additional designing of a sector Bovanenkovo – Sabetta is being conducted for that now.
