KAZAN, January 30. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federal Passenger Company plans to transport about nine million passengers to Olympic Sochi, Mikhail Akulov, the company’s general director and the vice-president of the Russian Railways Company, said in Kazan on Thursday.
According to him, special trains, including ‘double-deckers’, will transport almost 11,000 volunteers and the Russian children’s choir - over a thousand people, to Sochi.
Akulov compared the intensity of railway traffic in Sochi’s mountain cluster during the Games to the work of the Yaroslavl railway station in Moscow.
“We will need 209 pair of trains that will travel at an interval of no more than 6 minutes. We will have to exert effort to maintain the infrastructure and the rolling stock,” Akulov went on to say.
A special automated control system will be applied in the Olympic Sochi for the first time. “The system will be effective in controlling the distance between trains that will come one after another. It will also make it possible to recalculate the time in case of a breakdown at a separate section,” the president of the Federal Passenger Company emphasized.
The Federal Transport Company will transport passengers according to the Olympic schedule. “We are ready for the peak dates like the arrival and departure from the Games,” Akulov emphasized.
