Highspeed Rail Link Might Connect Pulkovo

Russian Railways is considering connecting the airports in St. Petersburg and Moscow to its high-speed railway planned between the two cities. If realized, this would significantly improve accessibility to the ExpoForum Convention and Exhibition Centre (???).

Russian officials unveiled detailed plans for this high-speed link at the conference, High Speed Rail World, held recently in Madrid. Denis Muratov, general director of High-speed Railways JSC, said the rail link could pass through Pulkovo and Sheremetevo airports, and that this, ``would significantly improve multimodal transport in Northwest Russia.''

The rail connection's exact path will be decided in early 2011. Then another year will be spent holding a tender, and six more months to conclude the contract, and finally almost five years will be needed for construction. If plans to join the airports will be approved, then additional terminals will have to be built. According to Muratov, the investment needed --- about 1.2 trillion rubles --- will be included in the project cost.

Anatoly Erkulov, ExpoForum general director, said that, ``A high-speed link between Pulkovo and Sheremetevo will also allow us to use the Moscow airport to receive guests for events at the CEC, and this will be an addition to the capacity at the St.Petersburg airport.''
