New high-speed rail will cost Russia trillions of rubles

OJSC Russian Railways compiled the cost details for the construction of a high-speed highway (HSR) St. Petersburg - Moscow - Nizhny Novgorod.




According to the calculations of railway workers, the HSR project will require investments of about 2,3 trillion rubles.

It is planned that out of this amount, 600 billion rubles will be provided by the state budget in the form of capital grants to the concessionaire and a loan from the National Welfare Fund (NWF).

The option of budget subsidizing a coupon on green bonds of Russian Railways for the construction of the Moscow-Petersburg section in the amount of over 300 billion rubles is not ruled out.

Also, the experts of the joint-stock company believe that the saving mode during the implementation of the HSR project will cost state support in the amount of 600 billion rubles.

According to the publication Kommersant, the editors of which managed to get acquainted with the calculations of Russian Railways, the total cost of the HSR St. Petersburg - Moscow - Nizhny Novgorod is estimated at 2,295 billion rubles.

It includes: 1,59 trillion rubles for the construction of the St. Petersburg - Moscow section with a length of 659 km, another 530 billion rubles for the Moscow - Nizhny Novgorod section with a length of 421 km (taking into account the reconstruction of the track) and 30,6 billion rubles will be the cost of designing the St. Petersburg plot.

    Surprising scope of expenses. They plan to spend as much as 30 billion on the design of the St. Petersburg site! rubles. Can’t you be more modest? After all, this is half the annual budget income of the entire Vladimir region, for example. Last year, 6 billion was spent on the development of the entire Russian agro-industry, and here more than 58 lard was spent on the design of the railway section! Not for construction costs, but for design! Is whatman and culman so expensive? Or is the work of designers Petrov and Rabinovich so highly paid? There are bad thoughts about the decency of part of the leadership of the railway workers. winked

      Designing is not easy.

      ... Whatman paperboard

      There is a decent amount of work, the link is a little more detailed, if interested, of course. laughing

        Judging by the link, there, in addition to the design process itself, survey work, approvals, licensing procedures, etc. are provided, and the article says in black and white the costs of DESIGN.

          All this is the design stages. Here's an example for a reference look.

          The order and stages of design:
          collection of initial permits;
          engineering surveys at the construction site;
          development of design documentation for obtaining approvals and expert opinions;
          examination of design documentation;
          development of working documentation.


          Original permissive documentation.

          I join the previous comment below (123), this is all included in the design, and for any construction project costs - this is standard 10-15% of the total investment. It is quite possible that in such a transport megaproject it really turns out more. I compare with a normal construction site. There, a huge number of approvals along the entire length, impact on the environment, links to other elements and networks of transport, energy, bridges, flyovers, etc. are added to this. etc.

    At our distances, this "toy" will never pay for itself.

    Do not understand a fig. The main thing is not roads. The owners of the Railways almost do not go.
    The main thing is new fur coats, new fur coats, new palaces for fur coats .... Yakunin as witnesses.
