The cost of the Severomuisky tunnel on BAM has increased to 261 billion rubles
The construction of the second stage of the Severomuisky tunnel at BAM will cost 261 billion rubles. This conclusion was reached by the sectoral institute of the IERT, which carried out an analysis of the project on the request of Russian Railways. According to experts, the cost of construction and its terms are too high to attract private investors, even those who are interested in the “Sibantratsit” project by Dmitry Bosov.
As the Kommersant, the first turn of the tunnel was built over 20 years. This is one of the main bottlenecks at BAM. Its capacity is 16 pairs of trains per day, or 16 million tons. Given the growth prospects of cargo traffic to the east in August, Russian Railways raised the issue of building a new Severomuisky tunnel. It will take at least ten years. The capacity will be additionally 34 pairs of trains per day.
According to the IERT estimate, the construction cost of the tunnel according to aggregate indicators is 190 billion rubles, excluding VAT. With deflators and producer price indices up to 2024, the cost will increase to 260,79 billion rubles. This is 100 billion rubles more than the amount that sources called the publication in the summer.
At the same time, the tunnel is the only major project on BAM that may have a private investor. In late August, the “Siberian anthracite” of Dmitry Bosov stated that ready to participate in the project. The company is still interested in the project. However, the cost of the project, the timing and complexity of construction almost eliminate the possibility of attracting private capital.
