Preparation for the FIFA world Cup 2018 in Rostov-on-don is at a record pace and in all directions: develop sports infrastructure, transport sector, hotel sector. One of the host cities of the FIFA world Cup will be the surprise guests from around the world. But large-scale innovations will ensure the development of the region for decades to come, underlines the Governor Vasily Golubev.
Hardly beautiful and victorious ended Sochi Olympics as full swing, preparations have begun for at least large-scale event – the 2018 FIFA world Cup. Here the reins of the economy is ready to take over the city, watching the world tournaments previously only from the outside, but has not lost the natural spirit of sportsmanship. It Rostov-on-don along with the other ten Russian cities destined to become another hallmark of our country.
“The backlog, which we will create here will serve people for decades to come”
Rostov-on-don is ready to surprise its residents and visitors not only sports facilities. Preparations for the international event covers many aspects of citizens ‘ lives. On 29 February, the airline “Rusline” at the airport of Rostov-on-don launched four new flights: now the inhabitants of the don capital can fly to Sochi, Kazan, Samara and Ekaterinburg, and no longer have to visit Moscow and other airports.
Recall, the Federal and provincial governments to actively help to expand the geography of flights. So, airlines that transport from Rostov-on-don to Kazan, Yekaterinburg and Sochi, according to the law “On regional budget for 2016 set aside additional funds in the amount of 73.5 million rubles from the regional budget. The same amount will be directed from the Federal budget.
To expand the geography of flights around the country – one of the main tasks of the government of the Rostov region. The Governor of the region Vasily Golubev said that it is planned to open directions in Nizhniy Novgorod, Ufa, Tyumen and Kaliningrad. Development of interregional air routes, increase passenger numbers and will contribute to the development of a new airport facility being built in the Rostov region.
Yet the airport carries the name “southern”, but perhaps very soon his name will change. The fact that the name of the complex under construction chosen by the residents, the survey which began on the website of the government of the Rostov region on February 18. Donetsk residents have proposed three options: the well-known name of “South” and “Rostov-on-don” and “Platov” in honor of the famous Cossack ataman, hero of the Patriotic war of 1812. In addition, residents can offer and its name. The voting will end on March 18, and the results will be announced in April.
In any case, no matter how called the airport complex, he “will become a new growth point for the Rostov agglomeration,” said the Governor of the Rostov region. According to him, it is not only improving the comfort for the residents, but “new jobs, new investment, new quality of services” and therefore, “a powerful impetus for decades to come”.
Now work is underway on the construction of the airfield. The project of the airport complex with each passing day more and more clearly acquires real features: already assembled 4996 piles of the total of 5,900 pieces, in particular for passenger terminal mounted 3070 3180 pieces from piles. In addition, elevated concrete frame building.
Rostov oblast is one of the few where close attention is paid to the development of domestic airlines, said General Director of airline “Rusline” Dmitry Eshtokin. All because for all three parties to the process – the Executive, the airport and the air carrier, the important unity of purpose and ways to achieve, as well as close cooperation and mutual understanding.
The completion and commissioning of the new airport is planned in 2017. Local residents and media are already calling the future of aerokompleks “bridge to heaven”. It will become the largest aviation hub in the South of Russia, where the inhabitants can easily travel to other regions and countries. Moreover, “the new airport will serve not only the basic traffic flow of the Rostov region and southern Federal district”, said Governor Vasily Golubev. “We expect that in the future he will take care of the traffic of Moscow’s airports,” he added.
The Governor explained that the geography of flights of the new airport complex will be considerably wider than the existing airport of Rostov-on-don. “Southerners, inhabitants of the neighboring Federal districts will be able to fly to many cities and countries, bypassing Moscow. So I can say that we are creating a brand new, modern hub airport of international level, providing connections between Asia and CIS countries with Europe”, – said Golubev.
Blood vessels of the economy
“Modern roads – the blood vessels of the economy, this is the shortest path to its development both in the city and in the countryside,” said one Governor.
Full swing reconstruction of Voroshilovsky bridge. In fact, it is the construction of two brand new facilities. Traffic on the raised bog rebuilt the bridge in two lanes already open. In 2017, when will the reconstruction of lanes will be six. The construction of the downstream part of the Voroshilovsky bridge “at current rates” with high probability it will also end earlier than planned, stated Director of the contract organization of the Rostov territorial branch of OJSC “Mostotrest” – “Mostootryad-10” Alexander Goloshivets, who was quoted by the portal DonNews.
Reconstruction of the bridge is of strategic importance. “We will not be able to develop new livoberezhniy district in Rostov, if not build another bridge across the don, if in the near future will not find the correct solution for the modernization of the transport system,” – said Golubev back in 2011. And now thanks to a rebuilt Voroshilovsky bridge will improve the transport link between the business and a Central part, as well as other areas of Rostov-on-don and, of course, a Bank.
However, the development of the transport system does not end there. From the southern entrance to the street is under construction of left Bank main street, where you will have access to the future stadium. This will help to redistribute the traffic flows between the Central business area of the city, South porch and a sports and recreation area of the stadium, and then the transport system will become even more flexible and reliable. “Building roads efficiently, we significantly increase the geography of new construction,” admitted Golubev in interview to the newspaper “Our time”.
The reconstruction of the South entrance of the Federal road Agency plans to launch in 2016 in the framework of the Federal targeted investment programme. The project will eliminate congestion at the southern entrance to the city. The Governor constantly reminds: “we must continue the reconstruction and Federal highways. Right track – from the intensive development of roadside complex. A revival of business creates new workplaces”, – Golubev highlights.
Equally important component of preparation for the world Cup – improvement of public transport. The fleet of trams in Rostov-na-Donu was not updated for almost 10 years. The volume of tram transport in 90-e years has fallen several times. And here February 27, domestic manufacturer has launched the first experimental model of a modern low-floor tram is air-conditioned.
“The electric vehicle is in dire need of replacement throughout the region, – declared Vasily Golubev. – This year we plan to buy for the Rostov 30 trams worth almost 1 billion rubles.” New trams will be purchased at the expense of regional and Federal funds. The cost of one such tram is 35 million rubles, which is almost three times cheaper than foreign analogues.
It is also planned to carry out major repairs of rail track in the Central streets and to separate them from the flow of cars, so the trams will be a speedy and convenient mode of transport. “The road is life, and each new section – this new development”, – stressed the Governor.
The authorities do not forget about the development of water transport. To ensure safe shipping and maximum use of the carrying capacity of the fleet, the planned construction of the hydroelectric complex in Bagaevsky district farm Arpachin. Part of the project are the construction of a ship lock, fish pass construction, dams, engineering structures from flooding and elevated groundwater levels. The object is already included in the “Strategy of development of inland water transport of Russia until 2030”. Its implementation will spend 22 billion rubles from the Federal budget. Bagaevskiy to build the dam, according to the Strategy it is planned in 2020. The corresponding decree was signed by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
The world football championship 2018 will take place on the sidelines of the 11 Russian cities, including Moscow, St. Petersburg and a symbol of the 2014 Olympics – Sochi. Rostov-on-don in this regard, it is important not only to welcome guests but also to become a worthy venue for the world Cup, not allowing herself to overshadow the cities-companions with seasoned star fame. Due to the comprehensive approach of the authorities to the preparation of the city it’s safe to say that with this task he could handle it.
Moreover, Rostov-on-don will open new horizons not only for tourists but also for residents of the city, which will long to buy innovative fruits of the world Cup. “Preparation for the championship is a unique opportunity to develop new territory, taking into account not only contemporary, but also future requirements. The backlog, which we will create here will serve people for decades to come”, – said Vasily Golubev.Related posts:
