MOSCOW, January 20./ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s federal aviation authority, Rosaviatsiya, has almost doubled the cost of twelve aerodromes’ reconstruction in the Far East Federal District, and the terms had been extended by an average of 2-4 years, Russia’s Audit Chamber reported following an inspection of the authority’s branch involved in management of civil airports.
In 2011-2013 the federal budget allocated for construction, reconstruction and modernization of twelve aerodromes over 28 billion rubles (about 840 million dollars).
“Over 2011-2012 and nine months of 2013, Rosaviatsiya transferred for those purposes 86.8 percent of the financing, or 24.3 billion rubles,” the Chamber’s press service quotes Auditor Valery Bogomolov as saying.
Over the works, the term of facilities’ construction was extended by an average of 2-4 years, and the extra financing from the federal budget was over 26.9 billion rubles, mostly without any changes in the amount of work to be done, the Chamber’s representative said.
In 2011-2013, the financing of construction, reconstruction and modernization of aerodromes in the Far East Federal District was under the special state programmes on development of Russia’s transport system, economic and social development of the Far East and Transbaikalia, and the social and economic development of the Kuril Islands. Rosaviatsiya was responsible for the works on twelve aerodromes.
