Within the meeting chaired by Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Maksim Sokolov it was stated that in course of implementation of Transport Strategy of the Russian Federation for the period until 2030 the Russian Government undertakes successive steps to set up large infrastructure projects in Northern Regions.
— “Belkomur” is a very promising project actively discussed at international platforms. The project core is the railway which also goes through the Arkhangelsk region, and will be coupled with deep-water port – Maksim Sokolov stressed – at the same time the Northern sea route remains the principal interlink between regions of Russia’s Extreme North.
The Minister reminded that last year the Russian Government adopted a project of complex development of the Northern sea route. In the nearest decades these measures will ensure safety of transit traffic and delivery of hydrocarbon crudemined on the Arctic coast or continental shelf.
