The Governor of Tomsk Oblast Signs Agreement With Russian Railways
The governor of Tomsk Oblast Sergey Zhvachkin signed a trilateral agreement with the Russian Railways and the administration of the city of Tomsk on cooperation for 2019-2024.
The new agreement largely takes into account the interests of Tomsk industrial and innovative enterprises. Firstly, Russian Railways, together with the regional administration and major consignors, plan to formulate a comprehensive development plan for the Tomsk railway junction to increase the freight traffic. Secondly, the company intends to study the proposals of Tomsk high-tech industrial products that can be used for the needs of Russian Railways.
The head of the region noted that he was considering the possibility of high-speed communication with the Tolmachevo International Airport in Novosibirsk with the leadership of Russian Railways to build a railway to the Tomsk industrial park and move the railway from the center of Tomsk to the city perimeter. “These are promising, strategic tasks that will take more than 1-2 years to be solved. But I am sure, we will solve it. Since the pace of socio-economic development of our region and the life quality of people depend on it”.
