Belkomur Project History In the middle of the 1930s a railway construction began in the planned Belkomur location. In 1944 the railway Kotlas-Vorkuta connected Pechora Coal Basin and Cherepovets Metallurgical Works. In the railway construction in the Russian Polar Region was stopped.
In 1995 a large-scale meridional project was proposed. The aim of the project was to link the cities of Arkhangelsk, Syktyvkar, Kudymkar and Perm by means of a railway called Belkomur. The project design was based upon the General Scheme of Railways Development in Russian European North.
Railway network development in the Urals and Russian European North
The project operator is JSC Interregional Company Belkomur Public share in the capital is 97%
In early 1998 the company Belkomur started construction of the northern part of the railway simultaneously from both directions.
Construction of the bridge over the r. Vashka, Udorsky District, the Republic of Komi
The Idea of Belkomur Project The project implies a construction of a new aligning railway 1252 km long, including a new construction of 795 km, the rest is reconstruction and modernizing of the existing lines.
Belkomur consists of two parts: Northern and Southern
The new railway is of strategic importance for Russia since it will provide a direct connection of the Urals and the Republic of Komi to the ice-free ports in Arkhangelsk, Murmansk and Northern Europe.
Belkomur Project Objectives Railway network development in Russian European North Infrastructural dead-ends liquidation Reduction of transportation distances Including idle territories into economic activities Railway transportation cost savings
Project Implementation Stages 1 st stage: Northern Link – construction of Karpogory-Vendinga rail way 1 st order – construction of Karpogory-Vendinga rail way by start-up complex 2 nd order – reaching full capacity of the rail way Karpogory-Vendinga
Project Implementation Stages 2 nd stage: Southern Link – construction of Syktyvkar-Perm rail way 1 st order – construction of Syktyvkar-Perm rail way 2 nd order – reaching full capacity of the rail way Syktyvkar-Perm
Integrated program for industrial and infrastructural development of the Republic of Komi, Perm Region and Arkhangelsk Region
