(In prices of 2013 with VAT). You also need to build a railway line Elegest - Kyzyl -. Kuragino worth 195 billion rubles for the construction contractor has already been chosen Omsk company NPO "Mostovik".

That "Stroygazkonsalting" really need the money, RBC summer told a federal official close to the road construction. "Competition for the construction of the first stage of CRR in April, the company took by offering a very low price, - he said. - I want to see how it eventually will be built. " "Stroygazkonsalting" proposed to reduce the budget share from 52.4 billion to 42.1 billion rubles. Construction of the road began in late August.
