Increasing the mobility of the population and the development of domestic tourism, increasing the volume and speed of cargo transportation, transit of goods, ensuring transport accessibility of territories, accelerated implementation of technologies and low-carbon transformation of the industry – these are the main goals of the new Transport Strategy until 2030 and the forecast period until 2035. It was approved by the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
New strategy discussed at a meeting of the Government on November 26.
“We have a very large country, so it is important to ensure high connectivity and transport accessibility throughout the country, including the Arctic zone and the Far East. Such an order was given by the head of state. We have laid down in the strategy the appropriate benchmarks for a ten-year period, ”stressed the Prime Minister.
The strategy is planned to be implemented in three stages. The first is limited to 2024, the second to 2030, and the third to 2035. The implementation of the strategy will ensure a new level of quality of transport services in Russia.
So, in terms of passenger traffic, it is assumed that by 2035, the transport accessibility of the main infrastructure by public transport within a single transport space will not exceed two hours. At the same time, the share of trips by public transport in the largest agglomerations should increase by 15% compared to 2019.
As part of the strategy, digital services will be actively introduced in public transport – from cashless payments using biometric technologies to the introduction of the “mobility as a service” model. Based on the results of the implementation of the announced plans, the technologies of intelligent transport systems will have to cover the largest agglomerations with a total population of 80 million people. It is expected that by 2035 the share of passengers using biometric identification on commuter, intercity and international services will be 80%.
Inside large urban agglomerations, it is planned to ensure an increase in the comfort of movement, an improvement in the environmental friendliness of the urban environment and its safety. To this end, the strategy provides for an increase in the traffic intensity on the existing rail infrastructure and the renewal of rolling stock, the integration of stops of various types of transport into transport hubs, the development of integrated digital and ticket solutions, the launch of new water passenger routes, and the development of air traffic between regions.
As for freight traffic, by 2024 Russia plans to significantly increase the throughput in the main directions of the main infrastructure, equip and equip checkpoints with modern equipment, create a high-quality infrastructure of inland waterways, primarily in areas with intensive freight traffic, launch unmanned cargo transportation along highway M-11 Moscow – St. Petersburg.
By 2030, it is planned to further develop the network of transport and logistics centers in the format of “freight villages”, launch new high-speed container routes, expand the use of alternative fuels with the transfer to them of up to 20% of the car park, up to 20% of diesel locomotives, up to 10% of sea and river ships. In addition, the strategy assumes an increase in the share of airborne unmanned vehicles for transportation in the direction of remote and inaccessible territories and the transfer of a significant share of delivery in the framework of online trading to drones and courier robots.
The document will be published.
