Project Stages

1 stage. North Link - Karpogory-Vendinga.

Priority - construction and setting into use the rail way Karpogory-Vendinga

Next - reaching full capacity of the rail way Karpogory-Vendinga

The link will connect idle and unprofitable dead-end lines Arkhangelsk-Karpogory and Syktyvkar-Vendinga. Thus a shorter way from the Republic of Komi to Arkhangelsk sea port will be created, as well as to Kola peninsula and Finland that will make possible to develop interregional and foreign relations of the Republic of Komi and Arkhangelsk region, minerals and wood resources.

At the moment rail way cargo transportation between the Republic of Komi, Arkhangelsk region and other North-West regions is made by a circular track through Konosha station. A direct access from Arkhangelsk to Mikun-Syktyvkar begun to be built after the World War II was not completed, two dead-end lines were built from Arkhangelsk to the South to Karpogory 222 km and from Mikun to Vendinga 176 km. Previously these lines worked to transport significant volumes of wood. Now they are idle and unprofitable because harvesting was decreased.

A rail way Karpogory-Vendinga will connect two dead-end stations mentioned above and give a direct way. Transportation distance will be reduced at 160-400 km and transportation costs at 20-65%, also there will be good possibilities for wood harvesting near the Pinega river. Today wood transportation from that remote place causes big problems and made by trucks by forest roads and a rail way combined which is as much as 3.5-4 times more expensive comparing to a rail way transportation, sometimes it leads to losses. Because of that estimated annual cut is used only at 30-40%.

The construction of the missing link Karpogory-Vendinga is a priority and principally important for Belkomur as a whole.

2 stage. Southern Link. Syktyvkar-Perm.

Priority - construction and setting into use the rail way Syktyvkar-Perm.

Next - reaching full capacity of the rail way Syktyvkar-Perm.

The link gives a direct access to the main Transsiberian Rail Way Moscow-Vladivostok and reduce distance for cargoes from the Urals to Arkhangelsk, Murmansk and Finnish sea ports.

The Southern link is a second stage of the meridian rail way. The new rail way Syktyvkar-Kudymkar-Perm 580 km should be built which will connect Syktyvkar and Komi North shortly (800 km distance reduction) with a well developed rail way network of the Urals near Perm. This will make possible to deliver Timan bauxites, chromium ores, Pechora coal, other Polar Urals minerals to the Urals processed industries.
