The development of the international transport corridor "North – South" was discussed in Astrakhan
ROSAVTODOR, 23.05.2022The Astrakhan Region was visited by the Minister of Transport of Russia Vitaly Saveliev, First Deputy Minister of Transport Andrey Kostyuk and Deputy Head of the Federal Road Agency Viktor Timofeev. Together with the Governor of the region Igor Babushkin, the delegation visited the ports of Olya and Astrakhan, the Karauzek border checkpoint, the New Bridge and the Astrakhan International Airport named after B.M. Kustodiev.
The Minister stressed that in the context of the development of the North–South corridor and the increase in cargo traffic, it is not only about the completion of construction and equipping in accordance with regulatory requirements of the Karauzek border checkpoint, which is located on the border of the Astrakhan region and the Republic of Kazakhstan, but also about the modernization of ports and repair of bridges. "Today we have inspected almost all key infrastructure facilities that require financial investments and the participation of the federal center. It is necessary to develop them, especially in the conditions of sanctions, and we are obliged to find alternative logistics routes," the head of the Ministry of Transport said.
Also, members of the delegation of the Ministry of Transport of Russia and the Federal Road Agency discussed the future construction of the Northern Bypass of Astrakhan. According to the project, the new section on the right bank of the Volga will be adjacent to the federal road R-22 "Caspian" highway M-4 "Don" – Tambov – Volgograd – Astrakhan, and on the left bank – to the highway Astrakhan – Krasny Yar – the border of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Currently, traffic is carried out on the current section of the II technical category highway, along two lanes through the regional capital on existing bridges.
The total length of the new segment will be 12.6 km, bringing the road parameters to the II technical category with four lanes. In addition, it is planned to build two transport interchanges and five artificial structures, including a bridge over the Volga with a length of up to 1.8 km.
The construction of the Northern Bypass will solve the task of developing the Astrakhan transport hub and increase the efficiency of the international transport corridor "North – South". The route across the Volga will be halved, and the streets of Astrakhan will be freed from transit transport.
All the main things about roads
Glavgosexpertiza of Russia, 05/24/2022
From May 30 to June 1, 2022, Sochi will host the VIII Forum of Road Initiatives "Innovative Technologies and Intelligent Transport Systems in Road Construction". The organizer of the forum is the State Company Avtodor. The information partner will be the "Bulletin of State Expertise" – the official publication of the Glavgosexpertiza of Russia.
Traditionally, the sites of the main industry forum bring together representatives of federal and regional authorities, leading companies in the road construction and telecommunications markets, research and design organizations, as well as a professional expert community from different cities of Russia and neighboring countries.
This year, the main focus of the business program is the dialogue between government and business in the new economic realities. Special attention within the framework of the dialogue will be paid to measures of state support for developers and developers of innovative products in the transport construction market.
The participants of the discussions will also discuss the issues of import substitution of road equipment, materials and software, the introduction of innovations and intelligent transport systems at key facilities of the federal program "Comprehensive Plan for the Expansion of Trunk Infrastructure" and the national project "Safe High-quality Roads". In addition, among the main issues on the agenda are the improvement of pricing mechanisms and estimated rationing in road construction, the updating of industry standards and technical regulations, the formation of new logistics corridors and a number of other pressing problems of the industry.

President Vladimir Putin outlined the main tasks for the development of the transport complex
Construction Complex of Russia, 25.05.2022
President Vladimir Putin held a videoconference meeting on the development of certain areas of the transport complex of the Russian Federation. "For many years, we have been consistently, systematically increasing Russia's logistics capabilities, doing this with a view to the long–term, long-term effect for domestic business, for our citizens," Vladimir Putin stressed.
He noted that it is necessary to get rid of any red tape that slows down the pace and delays the implementation of transport projects. At the same time, it is absolutely unacceptable to disrupt the timing of infrastructure creation.
"On the contrary, it is important, as I have already said, to speed up the construction projects that have been launched, as well as to speed up the elaboration and launch of new initiatives in the transport sector as much as possible. In particular, it is necessary to actively use the mechanism of parallel design and construction, of course, while meeting the requirements for the safety and reliability of the facilities being commissioned – this goes without saying. This may require additional adjustments to the regulatory framework, the procedure for preparing project documentation and regulations for construction work," Vladimir Putin said.
The development of sea and river ports, railways and highways should take into account the real demand for transportation and objective load forecasts. The possibility of expanding and modernizing the infrastructure to increase capacity should also be taken into account.
"I think it is right to abandon the inertial scenario in the development of transport infrastructure, when, based on current needs – only from current ones, the cargo base is estimated, and then, based on these estimates, routes are designed and built, their capacity is laid: then it is not enough. If we act in such a static logic, we will always be catching up, there will always be not enough bandwidth. The infrastructure should be oriented to the requirements of tomorrow, open up a space of opportunities for business initiative. And practice shows: as soon as new corridors appear, the goods that will go along them will certainly appear. This is always the case, you know: a road appears – life begins around it, there is no road – and there is nothing. In other words, it is infrastructure projects that form new cargo flows," the head of state said.
Among other things, he noted the need to accelerate the construction of new and modernization of existing checkpoints, not only land, but also sea ports on the border, in order to ensure faster, business-friendly passage of customs, phytosanitary and other types of control.
