2 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.
4 In 1995 a large-scale meridional project was proposed 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.
5 Railway network development in the Urals and Russian European North
6 The project operator is JSC Interregional Company Belkomur Public share in the capital is 97%
7 In early 1998 the company Belkomur started construction of the northern part of the railway simultaneously from both directions.
8 Construction of the bridge over the r Construction of the bridge over the r. Vashka, Udorsky District, the Republic of Komi
9 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.
10 Belkomur consists of two parts: Northern and Southern
11 Belkomur consists of two parts: Northern and Southern
12 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.
13 Belkomur Project Objectives Railway network development in Russian European NorthInfrastructural dead-ends liquidationReduction of transportation distancesIncluding idle territories into economic activitiesRailway transportation cost savings
