Order of April 28, 2021 No. 1100-r

The Cabinet of Ministers, within the framework of the President’s instructions, fixed the parameters of the second stage of the expansion of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian railways. The passport of the second stage of the investment project was approved by an order signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.

Project implementation was discussed March 2, 2021 at a meeting on the development of the coal industrychaired by President Vladimir Putin. The head of state stressed that work on the Eastern landfill should be as clear and rhythmic as possible, therefore he set the Government the task of determining and clearly fixing the parameters of the second stage of the development of highways, indicating the throughput and carrying capacity for individual sections, as well as the maximum weight of a freight train in a quarterly breakdown until 2024 of the year.

Mikhail Mishustin during meetings on transport support for the export of coal on March 6 in Kemerovo instructed the Government to carry out this work as soon as possible. “As a result, we will be able to get an absolutely clear plan, which will be able to guide not only the railway workers themselves, but also business, regions – everyone who is interested in developing their projects around or thanks to the expansion of BAM and Transsib,” Mikhail Mishustin emphasized.

The quarterly schedule for achieving the target indicators of the investment project was formed based on the structure of cargo flows, technical equipment and work technology. There are 21 control areas in total. For each of them, target values ​​of throughput (by stations, hauls and traction power supply), including those in freight trains, have been determined.

The project passport was agreed with the representatives of the shippers at the meeting of the Presidium of the Government Commission on Transport.

The throughput capacity of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian railways by 2024 should increase by 1.5 times – up to 180 million tons per year, and the delivery time for transit container cargoes in the West-East direction should be reduced to 7 days.

The first stage of modernization of these two branches is planned to be completed in 2021. In total, about 670 km of tracks will be built. At the second stage – more than 1300 km. In general, until 2024, the amount of financing, including funds for infrastructure for the transit of containers, will amount to about 780 billion rubles.
