Meeting on the construction of the Vladivostok – Nakhodka – Vostochny port highway in the Primorsky Territory

Following a meeting on the construction of the Vladivostok – Nakhodka – Vostochny port highway in the Primorsky Territory, Deputy Prime Minister – Presidential Plenipotentiary Representative in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev instructed the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Economic Development to develop criteria for the competitive selection of private investors to participate in the construction of the highway under the terms of a concession agreement.

“There is an order from the President of the Russian Federation to complete the construction of the road. The road is important. It ensures transport accessibility of Nakhodka, and this is one of the threads of transport infrastructure that is urgently needed in the Far East for the development of the country as a whole,” said Yuri Trutnev.

The Vladivostok – Nakhodka – Vostochny port highway, 146 km long, is a key infrastructure facility of the international transport corridor “Primorye-1”. The route will connect three major ports of Russia – Vladivostok, Nakhodka and the port of Vostochny, as well as the southern regions of the Primorsky Territory. The new road will become an important transport artery in the south of Primorye and will provide access to the federal highway A-370 “Ussuri” Khabarovsk – Vladivostok at km 734 in the area of the village of Uglovoye.

The first section, 18 km long, which bypasses Artyom, was opened in August 2016. Now work is being completed on the section from the 18th to 43rd km to the city of Bolshoy Kamen.

Further work on the construction of the road was discussed. About 100 km are divided into six sections with an average length of 20 km. Four stages are associated with the construction of sections bypassing Bolshoy Kamen, Fokino and the access to Nakhodka and the port of Vostochny, two more – with the reconstruction of sections of the existing road.

The construction of the Bolshoy Kamen bypass is provided for in the five-year road construction plan approved by the Government; a first category road is planned to be built with four lanes and traffic separation.

Proposals to attract private investment to the construction of the road were also considered. “The model for attracting private investors to the project must be transparent, understandable and honest. It must be done in the interests of the Russian state,” the Deputy Prime Minister concluded.
