The bridge will unite the towns Salekhard and Labytnangi. The governor of Yamal Dmitry Kobylkin told about it in a program of the TV and Radio Company “Yamal-Region” on the 15th of March.
According to him, the project documentation will be specified this year. In addition, all possible measures will be taken to minimize the costs of fulfillment of the project.
“The bridge will combine a motor road and a rail road line, and there are companies that are able to build it. This is a very complex project, but I think we shall fulfill it”, as Dmitry Kobylkin said.
In addition, the head of the region gave comments on the recent signing by the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev of the decree on the start of the concession procedure for construction of the Northern Latitudinal Railway.
“I am proud that we were able to create such a concession scheme, with which all key ministries of the Russian Federation agreed. Our team fulfilled it, reducing the capital grant of the federal budget from 66 milliard rubles to 10 milliard rubles. This is a significant decrease”, as he explained.
Dmitry Kobylkin underlines that in recent years much was done in the part of fulfillment of the project. In terms of sanctions it is difficult to fulfill such a project — the Northern Latitudinal Railway, but it has a significant advantage — it consists completely of Russian materials, what is very important in terms of import substitution.
The Northern Latitudinal Railway will create big number of working places not only in the Arctic but also in Russia. Since each working place in the Arctic creates 14 jobs in other sectors of the country’s economy. Such projects are necessary, and it needs to fulfill their bigger number, as the governor says in the conclusion.
