NIZHNY BESTYAKH, Republic of Yakutia, November 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has pledged to continue efforts to expand railway networks across Russia, including in its Northern areas.
Thus, he promised that a railway line would branch off the Amur-Yakutsk main line across the river Lena near the city of Yakutsk.
“It is a must to link the railway line with Yakutsk, across the Lena,” Medvedev said at a ceremony marking the end of the construction of the Berkakit-Tommot-Nizhny Bestyakh section of the Amur-Yakutsk railway. “Be sure we shall build this section. Apart from that, we have big plans to develop railway service in the Northern areas. I am sure these plans are to come true in the next few decades.”
The head of state greeted the railway builders but noted that due to various reasons, it took too long to complete the work. “The final phase was completed at an accelerated pace,” he stressed. “This is the northernmost railway that will be integrated into the united railway network across our vast homeland.”
