The project of the Northern Latitudinal Railway was suspended in favor of the BAM and the Trans-Siberian Railway

Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin announced the suspension of the Northern Latitudinal Railway (NLRT) project, which provides for the construction of a railway that will connect the west and east of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, as well as the Northern Railway with Sverdlovsk.

According to Moscow's plans, the secondary school was to be built in 2015, but due to lack of funding, the work had to be postponed. However, a year ago it was decided that the construction of the railway track would be completed only by 2027.

The northern latitudinal route was intended primarily for the transportation of gas condensate and oil cargo. The planned length of the road should be 707 km. It was planned to bring the expected volume of transportation to the level of 23,9 million tons annually.

The construction of the road had to be postponed due to the change in the external economic situation and the suspension of energy supplies in the European direction. Emphasis is supposed to be placed on the Eastern test site, which includes the integrated development of the BAM and the Trans-Siberian Railway.

Thus, Moscow is taking real steps to reorient export flows from west to east, changing political и economic priorities for the coming years.

    Yes, Zelensky is not a hetman and Surovikin is not a field marshal. The Pentagon needs a line of demarcation. And that the straight line was like in Korea. But straighten it out to Surovikin. And you will have to try. And put people in piles along the demarcation line. Monuments "alley of heroes of an idea that did not come true" 500 miles long. Sad to tears. The memory of this epic as a Russian-Japanese war will enter the souls of Russians. Only instead of the Japanese, the Russians will register

      I'm looking at chatroulette. Personal conclusion (I do not impose on anyone) - Ukrainians remain villagers from the outskirts. They don't blame themselves for anything. From the word at all. Everything is Russia, yes Putin, yes Skobeeva ... Everyone owes them, and their boundary, which they once had, is sacred.

      And if the right bank of the Selyuks is coming out... start all over again. This means that the "stacks" will be about a hundred thousand versts (100 versts) and so on without end. So, with the project "ukrogosudarstvo" it is necessary to finish. How and at what cost is the question. But in any case, it will come out "cheaper" than if you leave them with your teeth. And unattended...

    The problem of the SSH is rather not in the reorientation of flows, but in the absence of an economic development strategy and clear goal-setting...

    The development of the Transsib has always been relevant. This is a bottleneck between the Far East and the European part. And there was never enough money for it. And the SSH is too expensive, and its price has not yet been really determined.

    Americans need the Arctic. Russian Arctic. For this, the Northern Passage is needed, to protect the North. It is necessary to build gas carriers, a large-capacity fleet. And the road to the South, to Iran, India and Pakistan. From their ports, ship wherever you want. No AUKUS will hurt.

    I think that this is not necessary either. Exports should equal imports of the real, and not inflated and fictitious. And then you look and senseless BAMs with TransSibs will not be needed, and the dependence on raw materials will disappear by itself. Idiocy, when the citizens themselves and the leadership plunder the country and its subsoil will end with a stop to the raw material orientation.

      Don't you think that the country is dependent on raw materials due to the fact that Muscovites eat too much and... don't make them?
