A lot of noise and nothing
A sad continuation of the sensational story about BAM, another large Far Eastern construction
There is work, but there is no money
"Hello, Vladimir is my name (Let's call our hero so), I work in one of the mechanized convoys of “Bamstroymekhanization”, ”the interlocutor on the other end of the wire hesitates a little. - "You did the material about how in the Tynda and Skovorodinsky districts of BAM reconstruct?"
"I," I answer, "there works quite well, I've seen it myself."
Then Vladimir talks about the everyday life of the shift worker: working far from home, living in trailers, enduring both cold and heat - to this the hard-working Amur peasants-hard workers have long been accustomed to. But the trouble came, where did not expect - after a large-scale work began to be abruptly curtailed.
According to Vladimir, if someone is still working in the Skovorodinsky district, the employees of the Mekhkolons working in Ulak (MK-74, MK-94, MK-55, MK-174) went to forced leaves without any content - on the orders of their superiors . Those who still work, in the beginning of April received salaries only for January-February.
Only on paper
It is not known whether the chiefs overheard Vladimir, but almost immediately after his call, a special Moscow commission examined BAM sites from the Lena (East Siberian Railway) station to Tynda (Far Eastern Railway Station). And after that, as stated in the press release of Bamstroymehanizatsiya, 10 April in Tynda, an expanded meeting on the implementation of the program for the development of the Eastern landfill (this is officially called the reconstruction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline) was held, which was attended by representatives of the central office of JSC Russian Railways, Research institutes, as well as construction companies.
According to Vyacheslav Rybkin, the head of the Directorate for the Development of the Eastern RDF Landfill, the program for the modernization of the Baikal-Amur Mainline and the Trans-Siberian Railway has been approved by the state, but despite this, works on most objects have not started.
“But the deadlines for implementing the project during 2014 – 2017 have not been canceled by anyone,” said Vladimir Krapivny, chief engineer of the Far Eastern Railway. - In addition, in the modernization of BAM and Transsib there is a real need now. After all, right now there is an increase in transportation volumes to our Far Eastern ports, and if we do not start on time, this is fraught with two problems: first, the Eastern Polygon in a few years will not be able to accept the entire declared volume of cargo; secondly, an increase in the time frame for the implementation of the project will necessarily entail its appreciation. ”
Just a couple of days before the meeting, the head of Russian Railways Vladimir Yakunin himself spoke at the board of the Ministry of Transport about the problems with the allocation of funds from the NWF. According to RIA Novosti, 150 billion rubles should be allocated from the National Wealth Fund for projects of the development of BAM and Transsib, 50 billion of which was allocated last year. “It seems to me that it is necessary to hold an appropriate meeting in order to determine how to use these funds. Because today the regulations are such that it is almost impossible to use them, ”the agency quotes Yakunin. According to him, for the use of funds of the National Welfare Fund, approved design and estimate documentation is required. “Bring me at least one project that we had built with approved design and estimate documentation. It's impossible. If we had taken this path, we would not have celebrated Sochi now, but would have done the final stage of the development of design and estimate documentation, ”the Russian Railways head said then.
Questions turned out to be from the builders - the floor was taken by Vasily Tarasenko, chairman of the board of directors of Bamstroymekhanization. It turned out that at the Eastern test site the situation is practically one-on-one as at the Vostochny cosmodrome (really, in the word “Eastern” case ?!): builders work in advance, without design estimates, and at their own expense.
The aforementioned head of the Eastern Polygon Development Directorate, Mr. Rybkin, agreed with the builders and promised: in the near future, on behalf of Vladimir Yakunin, they will develop a scheme according to which Russian Railways’s budget will finally allocate funds for advances to contractors, and the president of the monopolist company will will take personal control.
Following the meeting, it was decided to establish in Tynda a headquarters for the implementation of the BAM modernization project. It will include representatives of customers, design institutes and construction companies. In the meantime, the Eastern Polygon is waiting for funding to begin.
