Krasnodar, 15 January – Yug Times. In 2020, the Russian Ministry of Transport will work over the variants of moving the railways and motorways currently laid along the Black Sea shore in Krasnodar krai, farther from the coastline.

The idea to reconstruct the roads to Sochi has for a long while been in the air. Its necessity was understood in the Soviet time. As for contemporary Russia, the initiative was actively discussed in 2009, during the ‘Olympic construction project.’

Upon the opening of the rail passenger service over the Strait of Kerch, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that moving the railways off the Black Sea coast near Sochi is a strategic national task. Ha gave an example of European countries.

Mr. Putin also drew attention to the motorway sector between Gelendzhik and Dzhubga, and pointed out that a new road must also be laid there. He noted that every Year Sochi loses millions of tourists due to the lacet roads that are hard to overcome.

Apart from the need to modernise the railroad, the Ministry of Transport is considering a variant of construction of a new highway Sochi - Dzhubga along the seacoast. The discussion of the initial variants of the new road may begin during the first quarter of 2020. What will be at issue is a possibility of beginning of the construction project with the most heavily loaded sectors - the detours around Sochi and Tuapse. Minister Yevgeni Ditrikh was quoted as saying that if the construction of the new highway would begin from there, it would be cheaper than trying to fulfil the entire project at once.

So far, experts differ in their assessments of the prospects for the idea of large-scale reconstruction of the roads along the Black Sea. Say, Yaroslav Kabakov, FINAM Strategy Director, says that “these are still intentions to a certain degree, which cannot mean for sure that they will be fulfilled. The aim for such declarations is to open a discussion on the issue, consider the possibility in principle for implementation of these ideas, define their pros and contras, and assess their possible cost. If such discussion would open, it may help answer some of these questions and encourage to take further steps in the fulfilment of the project. However, it is unlikely that such railroad would be constructed together with an alternate highway: the construction of two roads at once would soar up the cost of the project, postpone the payback terms and make the project itself very long.”

Grigori Kiselev, Head of the Centre for Political Studies and Technologies: “Both the motorway and the railway will be moved farther from the coast - however much would it cost and however long would it take to do so. Russian Black Sea resorts need these measures, especially Sochi where the railroad cuts the city into two parts, making recreation extremely inconvenient and cheerless.”
