The construction of an overpass will allow car drivers to cross a heavy-traffic railway line safely and quickly
Gazprombank, that implements the strategy of creating an infrastructure #MEGAPLAYER, DOM.RF, Bamtonnelstroy-Most Group of Companies and the Government of the Amur Region have signed a financial closing act on construction and operation of an overpass across the Trans-Siberian Railway in the urban-type settlement of Novobureysky.
The total budget of the project implemented in accordance with the Federal Law No. 115-FZ “On Concession Agreements” is estimated at 3 billion rubles, of which 1.5 billion rubles will be financed by a capital grant from the federal and regional budgets. The remaining part consists of Bamtonnelstroy-Most Group funds, a loan from Gazprombank and a concessionary loan from DOM.RF, granted within the infrastructure bond mechanism.
The construction of an overpass will allow car drivers to cross a heavy-traffic railway line safely and quickly. It will also ensure traffic safety, provide comfortable living conditions for the residents of the Far East, and reduce the environmental impact of vehicles. Besides that, the project is becoming particularly important in the context of the constantly increasing traffic on the Trans-Siberian Railway. The road will be 2.36 km long and have two lanes. Bamtonnelstroy-Most Group plans to complete construction by the end of 2024.
“The example of the Novobureysky Overpass Construction Project shows how joint work of DOM.RF, Gazprombank and the investor represented by Bamtonnelstroy-Most Group allows to arrange quick start of construction of a socially significant infrastructure project,” Head of the Infrastructure Projects and PPP Financing Department of Gazprombank Svetlana Lyapina said.
“The construction of overpasses across the Trans-Siberian Railway is necessary in order to ensure the people’s safety on the roads and develop transport infrastructure of the region. Railway is an important country’s economy engine, the number of trains is increasing, the intervals for cars to cross over train tracks are getting shorter. Four years ago, we started to work actively to solve this problem in the region, we developed overpass construction projects and funding models. Now, we have started the construction of two overpasses: an overpass in Novobureysky using the concession mechanism, and the other one in Seryshevo as part of a National Project. The work is going on, we are getting ready to build three more overpasses,” Governor of the Amur Region Vasily Orlov said.
“We have started the construction of the overpass across the Trans-Siberian Railway in the urban-type settlement of Novobureysky. This facility will significantly reduce traffic congestion on the existing railway crossing. It will have a positive impact on the speed of cargo delivery in the region. The overpass is being built using cutting-edge technologies, the superstructure will be made of weathering steel, the height of the overpass will not limit dimensions of a cargo, geotextile materials are used to reinforce embankment of the road formation,” General Director of SK Most (a member of Bamtonnelstroy-Most Group) Roman Krapivin said.
“The construction of a modern overpass by means of infrastructure bonds will have a positive impact on housing development not only in Novobureysky, but also in neighboring municipal districts, and will also improve the lives of about 1,000 families. This project serves as another evidence of the effective interaction of DOM.RF with banks and regions within the mechanism,” Director of Infrastructure Bonds Division of DOM.RF Alexander Aksakov said.
