ULYANOVSK, October 12 (Itar-Tass) - A city with the population of up to 150,000 will appear in Ulyanovsk by 2016, the region’s governor Sergei Morozov told Itar-Tass on Saturday.
“Near the village of Cherdakly within two years will shall build a special city - an aerotropolis with business centres, special laboratories for students and eateries,” he said.
The city’s Ulyanovsk-Vostochny airport will be the centre of the new city, and around it will be industrial, commercial and residential areas. The aerotropolis may be divided into two parts - the terminal and the aviation zone with shops, leisure complexes, eateries and logistics centres, and a business zone with business and retail centres, offices and houses, educational and medical institutions and industrial facilities.
“Jointly with Presidential Aide Igor Levitin, Minister of Transport Mikhail Babich we have discussed the next stage in implementation of the city’s development strategy. Quite soon major universities and institutes will either open their branches or move to this city,” the governor said.
The aerotropolis will attract businesses, the governor continued. All necessary facilities and services will be within 25-30 kilometres from the city’s centre. The aerotropolis will offer up to 20,000 new jobs and will improve the transport communication, thus making Ulyanovsk more competitive.
