UGLEGORSK, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. The construction of the Vostochny (Eastern) cosmodrome should be accelerated, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said. On Monday, he is on a working trip in Uglegorsk, Amur Oblast.
“The time limits that we have been failing to comply with, they should be returned to the new schedules of work. Moreover, I would put the question in another way — these schedules should be rearranged in such a way as to give the rocket and space industry the time and spatial resource to prepare the first successful launch of the Soyuz-2 carrier rocket,” Rogozin said at a meeting in Uglegorsk.
Head of Russia’s Federal Special Construction Agency (Spetsstoy) Alexander Volos said previously that the construction work lag of three months had been mostly made up for, and now the gad is only 10 days. On November 27, it was announce at a conference in Uglegorsk that the launching site of the Vostochny cosmodrome would be ready for the installation of special equipment in September 2014.
The main buildings and facilities to be used for spacecraft launches will be ready to receive the special equipment in February. The railways will be commissioned in August 2015. The construction workers’ quarters of the Vostochny cosmodrome by late 2015 will have 17 houses with 1,482 apartments, children’s and adult polyclinics and a first aid station. The camp will occupy an area of 1,050 hectares in the territory of Uglegorsk settlement and will be named after Konstantin Tsiolkovsky.
The Vostochny cosmodrome is being built near Uglegorsk in the Amur region. The first launch from the spaceport is planned for 2015, and the first manned launch — for 2018.
