At the bridge over the Volga River in Ulyanovsk mounted penultimate span structures

No back-peddling on Russian transport spending-Putin

NOVOSIBIRSK, Russia, Oct 22 (Reuters) - Russia will go ahead with its $6.4 trillion project to upgrade national transport infrastructure by 2030 despite its current financial woes, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin pledged on Wednesday.

But he made clear that ongoing turmoil on financial markets could affect the actual spending on the most ambitious project ever undertaken by the Russian government.

"We know about turbulent processes in the global economy, but judging by all the forecasts, they will last several months, perhaps until the end of next year," Putin told a meeting of government officials in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk.

"But the transport strategy until 2030 was approved and now we must focus on its unconditional implementation," he added.

However, Putin also said the financial realities could influence the plan.

"I agree this is a living document and we should base our actions on the realities," he said.

Insufficient and outdated transport infrastructure is one of the most acute problems standing in the way of economic development in the country, which stretches along 11 time zones.

"The lack of proper transport infrastructure deprives many territories of chances to develop," Putin said. "High transportation costs build on prices, driving them up."

Historically, Russia has based its infrastructure on railway and later on air transport, while automobile highways remained largely rudimentary.

Up to now, there has been no quality ground route linking European Russia with is Pacific coast, and there is no motorway linking Russia's two largest cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg.

But even rail and air routes have fallen short of meeting the growing flow of goods after nine years of strong economic growth in the country.

Russia has proclaimed upgrading transport infrastructure as one of the priority projects open for Western investment.

AMBITIOUS PLANS

Early this year, the government adopted a plan to invest 13 trillion roubles ($550 billion under the exchange rate at the time) until 2015 into building new roads, air hubs and other infrastructure necessities

The meeting in Novosibirsk approved a broader plan to spend 172.3 trillion roubles ($6.4 trillion) until 2030.

Under the plan, which was drafted before Russian markets went into free fall under the weight of the global financial crisis, the government had intended that 60 percent of the money would come from private investors.

But Transport Minister Igor Levitin told reporters that ultimately the ratio between state and private investment could be 50/50.

The government believes the fundamentals of Russia's economy are healthy and the country has accumulated enough resources to weather the storm. Russian leaders have said they expected the domestic economy to emerge healthier from the global crisis.

Putin suggested that consolidation of various sectors of transport infrastructure could be a useful strategy.

"Authorities are working on means to consolidate the sector, including the creation of managing companies, united air carriers and operators of railway, sea and river transport," Levitin told journalists.

"This is appropriate today given the situation on the financial markets," he added.

The planned creation of a new carrier, Russian Airways, on the basis of three existing companies -- one of which, Air Union, has collapsed under $800 million worth of unpaid fuel bills -- is part of the planned consolidation plans.

State corporation Russian Technologies and the government of the city of Moscow will co-own the new carrier.

State co to develop fed roads should be created in 1st half 2009

MOSCOW, November 17 (Itar-Tass) — A state-run company to manage and develop federal highways should be founded in the first half of 2009, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov said at a meeting of the government presidium on Monday.

“The governmental committee for transport and communications will hold a regular meeting this week in order to consider two key issues: the first one – to consider and endorse a concept of Russia’s regional information system development until 2010; the second one – the process of establishing a state-run company to manage and develop federal highways,” Ivanov said.

He recalled that a substantial meeting on the problems for creating this company was held on October 1. All cardinal disagreements were lifted at the meeting. He also noted that under the previous decisions this state company would be founded not as a state corporation, but as a non-profit partnership.

According to Ivanov, the foresaid governmental committee will consider a draft law on establishing this state corporation. The committee should approve it, then put it up for discussion in the government and in the State Duma later. “We should found this company in the first half of 2009,” Ivanov said.

The vice-premier also noted that he would attend an inauguration ceremony of the second bridge across the Oka River in Kaluga on November 22. This project is not regional, as the highway is federal with spur lines to Ukraine and Belarus, Ivanov said. Both bridges across the Kaluga River have been built for a record short period of three years, Ivanov recalled.

The area where people actually live, so the western part, has got quite good roads AFAIK. Maintenaning many roads in Russia is very difficult, because of Russia's size and the harsh climate.

Anyone who knows how the economic crisis influences the much-needed improvement of Russia's road infrastructure?
