BARNAUL, December 3 (Itar-Tass) —The first auto tourism cluster named Golden Gate will be built in the Altai Territory. It will be able to receive tourists, travelling in Altai in their cars. The regional administration told Itar-Tass on Monday that the process of creating the technical infrastructure of the cluster is almost completed, and the construction of its main facilities will be launched next year.
The waste-water disposal system, water supply, electric power and gas supply facilities have been built at the site of the cluster with an area of 60 hectares, which is located in Biysk. “Biysk is advantageously situated at the entrance to the main recreation area. More than 80 percent of the tourists visiting Altai are passing on this road,” head of the marketing and tourism sector of the Biysk administration Ruslan Yemelyanov said.
The investors here will finance the construction of shops, hotels, garages, as well as other recreation and rest facilities.
“The Biysk administration has concluded three agreements on the implementation of investment projects worth 950 million roubles. It completely meets the obligations to attract extra-budgetary investment in the auto tourism cluster,” the Altai Territory administration said.
It is planned to build a total of eight main tourism facilities in the Golden Gate auto cluster.
