The implementation of a new road project will improve the transport access to the seaport of Novorossiysk
As part of the strategy of creating an infrastructure #MEGAPLAYER, the consortium of Gazprombank, Bamtonnelstroy–Most Group of Companies and Delo Group announced their intention to implement the Tsemdolina Village – Portovaya Street transit highway construction project in Novorossiysk with a road adjacent to the section of M-4 Don Highway.
The documents on cooperation were signed by First Vice President and Head of the Infrastructure Projects and Public–Private Partnership Department of Gazprombank Pavel Brusser, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bamtonnelstroy-Most JSC Ruslan Baisarov and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Delo Group Sergey Shishkarev.
Gazprombank and its partners will consider the possibility of participating in the project involving construction of a 13-km-long highway on a concession basis. It is planed that Gazprombank will act as a lender and be a part of the concessionaire. The preliminary amount of capital expenditures is estimated at 92.6 billion rubles.
“Gazprombank, as a strategic bank and #MEGAPLAYER in its niche, is fully aware of its responsibility for the development of the infrastructure of Russian regions. The South of Russia is developing rapidly and needs high-speed highways and modern road interchanges. Thanks to the new transit highway, residents and guests of the Krasnodar Region, representatives of local businesses will be able to get to the usual “points on the map” safer and more comfortable,” First Vice President and Head of the Infrastructure Projects and Public-Private Partnership Department of Gazprombank Pavel Brusser said.
“Bamtonnelstroy-Most Group of Companies has already been developing the Novorossiysk Railway Transport Hub to ensure stable operation of industrial facilities of the Southern Federal District. The implementation of a new highway construction project together with our partners will improve the transport access to the seaport of Novorossiysk, reduce the traffic density of the road network, improve the ecological and urban environment in Novorossiysk,” Deputy General Director of Bamtonnelstroy-Most JSC Alexander Kozarenko said.
“Delo Group considers its participation in this project as a significant contribution to the expansion of the transport and logistics capabilities of the Novorossiysk Transport Hub. The construction of this road necessary for both the city and the port fully corresponds to the decision of the Russia’s leadership to boost maritime trade relations with Turkey and other friendly countries. Widening of approaches to the port will certainly significantly increase the cargo traffic thus providing comfort to the citizens and significantly reducing the burden on the environment of Novorossiysk,” General Director of Delo Management Company Dmitry Pankov said.
