VLADIVOSTOK, October 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The Federal Space Agency Roskosmos launched a reconnaissance survey for a launching site of the Vostochny spaceport in the Amur Region on Tuesday. The construction site was also selected to build a township for the personnel of the spaceport near the town of Uglegorsk, the press service of the Amur regional authorities reported on Tuesday.
The special reconnaissance committee will work until October 21. The experts should find a construction site for a residential area and should agree on all technical conditions. The government of the Amur Region will sum up the results at a meeting on Friday, October 21. The construction site for a Vostochny launching site will be determined by this time.
The first apartment blocks of a residential area for the Vostochny personnel are designed for 12,000 residents. The construction program for 2011 envisages the allocations for the development of the design documentation and a feasibility study for a future construction project. The authorities will decide on the connection of the new residential area to the current infrastructure of Uglegorsk, where more than 5,000 people live.
