Moscow-Kazan high-speed rail project going ahead
Russian Railways (RZD) and the Eurasian Development Bank have signed a cooperation agreement in order to implement the construction of the Moscow-Kazan high-speed railway investment project. The pact is intended to ensure the project's financing.
RZD is continuing to implement the Moscow – Vladimir - Nizhny Novgorod - Kazan high-speed rail project, which also acts as a pilot stretch of the Berlin-Moscow-Beijing high-speed railway line.
Given the Moscow-Kazan railway's connections to regional airports, the line should become the basis for a fundamentally new multimodal transport system that combines rail, air and road transport, according to RZD. (ben)
