Northern logistics: Russia is building a new “transport framework”

25

At the end of April, an important event occurred in Russia. Construction of the first stage of the railway line was completed on the territory of the Nizhny Bestyakh cargo terminal in Yakutia.

Now the BAM has finally connected with the Lena River in Yakutsk, and in fact, with the Northern Sea Route, since the latter flows into the Laptev Sea of ​​the Arctic Ocean.



It is worth noting that the first passenger train to the Nizhny Bestyakh station, located on the right bank of the Lena, arrived back in 2019. At the same time, the delivery of goods to the river port had to be carried out by road, after unloading the wagons at the above-mentioned station.

In turn, after the completion of the construction of the first stage of the railway line from the station’s cargo terminal to the port on the banks of the Lena, a powerful transport hub arose, significantly facilitating and reducing the cost of the Northern Delivery.

At the same time, everything that is happening is extremely important not only for the residents of Yakutia, but also for all of Russia as a whole. After all, the expansion of northern logistics does not stop there. Already in the summer of this year, it is planned to begin construction of a railway line from Nizhny Bestyakh station to Magadan, which is then planned to continue to Chukotka.

At the same time, we should not forget about other logistics projects. Construction continues on one of the world’s largest projects – BAM 2.0. At the same time, work is in full swing to increase port capacity in the Arctic Basin - berths are being expanded and new terminals are being built in Murmansk, Dikson, Tiksi and beyond. In addition, new ports are being built, to which railway lines are also connected.

Naturally, infrastructure facilities are emerging around transport arteries in the Russian North - factories, power plants, and in the future cities will also be built.

Thus, without exaggeration, we can say that the Russian Federation is building a new “transport framework” right now.

    The transport corridor is great! But whether cities beyond the Arctic Circle are still needed is a big question.

      Especially if climatologists are not lying and “global warming” is expected, then our cities will begin to sink into melted swamps.

        The way they are built, they will have enough time to serve their purpose until they are replaced by a more modern one.

        Yes, that's not even the point. There is nothing good for your health if you live above the Arctic Circle. And children first of all.

          - why write nonsense? We live quietly and give birth to children...

            For God's sake, live above the Arctic Circle from birth to death. If you like it that way. But many people don’t like it because it’s harmful to health. Life expectancy is not high at all.

              can we argue? where is it more harmful to live, in Lipetsk next to the metallurgical plant or in Yakutsk where there is no industry other than local (food) and diamond cutting and there is taiga around

                Why argue with you if you don’t even know that it’s very far from Yakutsk to the Arctic Circle. The debate then is more or less legitimate - where is it better to live, in Lipetsk or Tiksi... But I strongly suspect that you have not been to Tiksi if you dream of the taiga..

                  I’ve been to Tiksi, there’s tundra there, and in our times it’s the fifth point of the world, what’s the point in dreaming about the taiga if it’s half a kilometer away from me? from Yakutsk to the Arctic Circle is less than 500 km, almost close

                    So, are you ready to live your whole life in Tiksi, and for your children to live there all their lives? Or will it be better in Lipetsk?
                    From me to the Arctic Circle is 700 km. And it's far away. I wouldn't want to live behind it)

                      really strange, “harmful” and “worse” in terms of infrastructure are not synonymous. I chose something in between...

                        Well, not Tiksi, take Norilsk, Vorkuta. Would you like to be there? And yes, it’s worse for you in terms of infrastructure. There are places where they are the same. But beyond the circle, life expectancy is lower. Statistics.

    Now, the Yakuts will flock en masse to the Primorye region for real estate and hectares, to the delight of people from the middle of the global south and north.

      For what? If only a few, the number of Yakuts is not large, about half a million and 96-98% live in the republic, five Frances are more than enough for everyone.

    Yakutia is of course a special case. The region is harsh but rich. But you can and should live in Southern Siberia, otherwise there is a risk of losing it. Meanwhile, people continue to leave for the European part of Russia. No fracture occurred

      otherwise there is a risk of losing it.

      So it has already been lost, or rather its subsoil and natural resources, as a source of increasing the well-being of those who live there, and are not listed as a representative in the Duma.

    Who will inhabit these cities given the demographic gap, with the current population, especially Russians? Guest workers? Funny...

    It has already been written here several times that they do not spare money on the logistics structure for exporting raw materials overseas.
    It seems they have already written about 3 multi-billion dollar projects like these. Ports, roads, terminals and warehouses.
    So everything is correct here. Will. China and Asia can't wait to get cheaper Russian raw materials.

    But the rest is clearly in question. Recently on VO there was an article about the new Lena Bridge. So the railway is being built past it, to the ports. and to Yakutsk... there will only be a road. It's not a port.
