Transportation Infrastructure

Another area of our business is the construction of transport infrastructure facilities. These include a wide range of facilities, as the industry itself includes road, water, air traffic, as well as the surrounding infrastructure and the roadbed itself.

VIS Group successfully implements projects of road and transport construction on the territory of the Russian Federation. In many ways, it is promoted by our developed material and technical facilities and skilled personnel.

Timeframe for implementation: 2020 to 2025

Concession grantor: Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)

Concessionaire: OOO Eighth Concession Company 

On February 13, 2020, a concession agreement was signed on the design, construction and operation of a bridge across the river Lena in Yakutia between the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and OOO Eighth Concession Company. OOO Eighth Concession Company is 100% owned by the VIS Group (AO), OOO National Infrastructure Company (a consortium of the Rostech state corporation and the VIS Group) is its managing company. The project is structured as a private concession initiative.

According to preliminary estimates, the total length of the bridge crossing will exceed 3 km, and the length of approaches approximates 11 km. This will be a two-lane transport artery with an estimated throughput of up to 7,000 cars per day. VIS Group is implementing the project throughout its entire life cycle: from design and financing to the construction and operation of the bridge. The exact cost will be determined based on the results of the design and state inspection. Extrabudgetary funds in the project will amount to approximately 30 billion rubles. The project life cycle is 25 years, out of which six years were allotted for design and construction and 19 years – for concessionaire operation.

In the past 40 years, the need for a bridge across the Lena has been discussed numerous times at the state level. Due to the lack of year-round land links between the eastern and western parts of Yakutia, 80% of its population has no connection with the mainland for 5-6 months out of a year. The new bridge crossing will reduce budgetary costs for “Northern delivery” and will replace unsafe winter roads and crowded ferries that operate across the river in the summer. Passenger traffic is slated to grow to 8 million people per year after the bridge is commissioned. The cumulative positive effect on Yakutia’s GRP can amount to 3% annually.

The high-speed four-lane road will be part of the ring route in the Primorsk recreational zone. 

Bridge design and construction is slated to take 5 years and 3 months. The operational stage of the established facility is 23 years. The preliminary cost of design and construction is estimated at about 35 billion rubles at the prices of Q4 2018. The final estimated cost will be refined following the results of the government expert review of project documentation and the accuracy of the estimated cost with recalculation into prices of the respective years of the facility construction. VIS Group is investing approximately 15 billion rubles in the project, including proprietary and borrowed funds. The rest should be attracted through budget financing. To reduce the burden on the regional budget, the project provides for toll collection, with an amount set by the Government of the Kaliningrad region. This will reduce the size of payments to the concessionaire for the constructed and commissioned bridge.

It will allow to loop the Ring Road, connect Kaliningrad’s Southern and Northern bypasses, reduce the distance between settlements by 40 km.
