Russia is working in redevelopment of infrastructure with vast investment budgeted to US $969 Billions. Over 325 such developments are in the pipeline, helping provide a stronger environment for transport and logistics.
In recent past, Russian Railways (RZA), Russia’s national rail operator, plans to take supply of roughly one million tons of new track. By 2030, some $464.2 billion will have been pumped into building fresh railways or existing facility enhancement.
Russia needs rugged highways and roads to keep people and goods flowing freely. Over $548 billion has been allocated towards for construction of roads in rural areas. Over 1,000 kms of new roads are planned for 2020. 36 individual construction projects, featuring new bridges, are to be implemented before 2030.
Arkhangelsk in North-West Russia is to see construction of a new deep-water port, with first cargoes passing through there by 2025 which will be able to handle 30 million tons of freight annually and act as alternative route for cargo flows to and from Europe, North America and China.
