Cargo transit shipments from Europe to China by Russian high-speed railway will take two days instead of 60 days by sea, President of Russian Railways Oleg Belozerov said speaking at a meeting of the United Russia faction.

“We plan to reach China via Kazakhstan and to carry special high profit cargos to Europe via Russia, because a ship sails now 60 days, which is a long time. It sails round India and only than arrives to Europe. With a high speed (railway) transport we will be able to deliver goods in two days, and to earn extra money for our country,” he said.

Russian Railways’ main task for 2017 is the launch of the project and the start of the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high speed railway.

The Moscow-Kazan High Speed Railway’s total length will stand at around 770 kilometers. Trains may go at a speed of 350-400 kilometers per hour, and the time en route between the two cities could be 3-3.5 hours against the current 14 hours. According to Belozerov the railroad may be commissioned before 2022-2023.

The total cost of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway line is estimated at 1.068 trillion rubles ($16.8 bln). The Moscow-Kazan section may later be extended to China, connecting the two countries across Kazakhstan. According to the Russian Railways, the length of Moscow-Beijing railroad will be 7769 km, travel time – 32.8 hours (four times faster compared to current 130.4 hours). The average annual passenger traffic is estimated at 195 mln people.

China intends to provide 400 bln rubles ($6.5 bln) for the project of Moscow-Kazan high speed railway as a credit for 20 years and more than 100 bln rubles ($1.6 bln) as a contribution to the charter capital of the special project company.

The German Initiative Consortium (includes Siemens, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bahn and other companies) is ready to allocate 2.7 bln euros to finance the construction of the high-speed railway line and to attract up to 800 mln euros for the project.

Also from TASS: Russian Railways offers cooperation on high speed railways to Japanese companies

  1. Would be a great idea to start in Rotterdam (NL) and then all the way to China, through Russia! But our stupid government probably will not cooperate, imagine, doing business with Russia again…..but….you never know what happens next year, with President Trump, things might be very different soon! And we have elections coming up as well! Ohhhh, the old world order is soooo afraid what is going to happen!

  2. I really liked the sound of this paragraph:

    “The German Initiative Consortium (includes Siemens, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Bahn and other companies) is ready to allocate 2.7 bln euros to finance the construction of the high-speed railway line and to attract up to 800 mln euros for the project.”

    This means that despite all the spanners being thrown into the relations between Russia and Germany, the business-side lines of communication are still open and functioning.

  3. I would like to see the development of integrated Eurasian energy and transport and trade systems. With the new technologies available the vision of an integrated Eurasian continent can be a reality. All that stands in the way are old habits and ideas – and the US, of course.

  6. I can clearly see this is an example of the Great Balancer in operation & am wondering if it is also a 3D, 4D,5D multi-dimensional project?

    What struck me was the joint German/Russian/Chinese funding combined with the name of the project, Moscow-Kazan High Speed Railway. The German Initiative Consortium is allocating 2.7 bln Euros with potential 800 mln more and China is pitching in more than 100 bln rubles plus a 400 bln 20 year credit.

    I was intrigued with the name & googled Kazan.
    **…in Kazan, the capital city of Tatarstan Republic, there is an amazing place that combines the world’s major religions. It is called the Temple of All Religions or the Temple of Seven Religions or the Universal Temple. The temple combines images of religious buildings of different faiths in an attempt to achieve harmony and peaceful coexistence. Photos by: Anton Petrus**

    Construction started in 1994. The pictures are stunning.
