Why Russia the high speed line to Nizhny Novgorod? Georgy Bovt's comment


The government coordinated construction of the site of VSM Moscow — Kazan, the last word for the president. Whether the project for 620 billion rubles is expedient? Georgy Bovt. Photo: Mikhail of Fomichev/TASS the Government of the Russian Federation approved construction of the high speed line from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod. The report on the project of the highway is submitted for approval to the president Vladimir Putin who will make the final decision. Strictly speaking, the speedway is supposed to be stretched from the city situated near Moscow Railway to Gorokhovts in the Vladimir region so far, and from there to the Lower train will go on old ways. Construction of this site is estimated at 621.5 billion rubles from which 200 billion have to enclose the federal budget and the Russian Railway, the rest — private investors. Then continuation of the highway — already to Kazan is possible. Then cost will exceed 1.5 trillion rubles. Whether this project is expedient? Now by fast trains "Martin" or "Swallow" from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod it is possible to reach in three hours forty minutes or in four hours respectively. "Martins" and "Swallows" quite cope with a passenger traffic. Now for 620 billion rubles — and in the course of construction the estimate, as usual, will rise time in two — it is supposed to reduce this time on an hour and a half. Whether such investments are expedient whether the passenger traffic between two cities is so big and whether the population will pull the raised ticket prices? There are many experts who doubt it, considering that it in terms of payback is repaid so far unless the Moscow — St. Petersburg highway which, however, it is hardly possible to call high-speed to modern measures: the most part of a way of the train drive at insignificant speed of 160-190 kilometers per hour. This road runs on old ways, having taken away them from cargo trains and restricting suburban electric trains. In principle, the real VSM is necessary on this direction. And high-speed suburban railway routes in the Moscow agglomeration that, say, from Zvenigorod to the capital it was not necessary to trudge an hour and a half are necessary. The Ministry of Finance suggested to refuse the project of the highway to Nizhny Novgorod, and to direct money to construction and development of the airports and also maritime routes and ports. If to compare to other countries, big across the territory, then high speed lines most successfully develop in China. Two thirds of their universal extent in general are the share of it. Last year 4600 kilometers of such roads were constructed, in it 3200 more kilometers will appear. And then the total length only of the high-speed railroads in Celestial Empire will exceed 30 thousand kilometers — there were eight thousand seven years ago. Trains run on such highways with a speed of 350 kilometers per hour. However China is the country with very dense population and a passenger traffic, inconceivable for us. The Chinese railroads transport more than 3.5 billion passengers a year. High-speed roads also successfully develop in plotnonaselenny Europe, for example, in France and now Spain, the countries of the average sizes where they it is successful конкурир
