The Russian government has increased the authorized capital of Russian Railways to 47.38 bln rubles ($597.75 mln) for the implementation of investment projects for the development of a public railway infrastructure. The corresponding decree was published on Wednesday on the official government website.
"The authorized capital of Russian Railways was increased to 47.38 bln rubles ($597.75 mln) for the implementation of investment projects for the development of public railway infrastructure, including the construction of the railway line Prokhorovka - Zhuravka - Chertkovo - Bataisk, and the design of Moscow - Kazan high-speed rail," the statement said.
According to the explanatory note to the document, 18.89 bln rubles ($238.68 mln) will be spent on the reconstruction of the section Gorky - Kotelnikovo - Tikhoretskaya - Krymskaya bypassing the Krasnodar railway junction; 16 bln ($202.17 mln) for the construction of the railway line Prokhorovka - Zhuravka - Chertkovo - Bataisk: 12.39 bln rubles ($156.34 mln) for the implementation of investment projects for the development of public railway infrastructure, including the Moscow region; 100 mln rubles ($1.2 mln) for Moscow - Kazan high-speed, which is in the design stage.
