The XV International Forum and Exhibition “Transport of Russia”, held in the framework of the main event of the year in the industry – Transport Week, began its work in Moscow today. First Deputy Prime Minister Andrey Belousov took part in the work of the forum and exhibition.
In particular, a plenary discussion “Transport of Russia – 2035. From strategy to implementation” took place. Speaking at the event, Andrei Belousov noted that now a window of opportunity has been opened for Russia. Due to new technologies that have already been tested in the world, in other sectors of the Russian economy, transport today has a unique opportunity to ensure the seamless and barrier-free movement of passengers and goods.
“From my point of view, this is one of the main, if not the main focus of our efforts. If we manage to sew different types of transport, control the movement of goods, ensure the safety of goods, each passenger, achieve a completely electronic document flow, then in fact we will get a qualitative leap in efficiency, in the speed of movement of goods. This is the challenge, the opportunity that we have, ”he stressed.
In addition, in the format of a teleconference with the Leningrad Region, the First Deputy Prime Minister opened traffic on the reconstructed section of the federal highway A-181 “Scandinavia” leading to the seaports of Primorsk and Vyborg, as well as to the state border.
As part of the reconstruction of the section of the highway from the 65th to the 80th km – from the village of Ogonki to the turn to the village of Tsvelodubovo – the existing road was expanded from two to six lanes, bringing its parameters to category IB. The interchange at the intersection with the Ushkovo-Graviinoe regional road, bridges over the Ptichya and Gryaznovka rivers have been reconstructed. To ensure traffic safety, metal barriers were installed on the roadside and concrete ones along the axis of the roadway. Separation of streams will eliminate the likelihood of accidents associated with driving into the oncoming lane. Outdoor lighting was installed along the entire length of the renovated site, including exits from the interchange. The object is included in the federal project “Development of the federal backbone network” of the national project “Safe high-quality roads”. The section from the border of St. Petersburg to Ogonyok has already been reconstructed. Currently, construction and installation work is being carried out on the section from the 80th to the 134th km.
Within the framework of the forum, Andrey Belousov presented state awards to the most distinguished representatives of the transport industry. Also, the First Deputy Prime Minister visited a number of stands of organizations of the transport complex. He got acquainted with the implementation of the Safe High-Quality Roads national project, the project for the construction of the M-12 Moscow-Kazan high-speed road, and examined a full-size model of a non-compartment carriage of Russian Railways.

A set of events on the issues of the transport industry is planned, including industry sessions and conferences on types of transport.
