In accordance with the 2030 Transport Development Strategy (recall that it was adopted back in 2008), special attention will be given to rapid and high-speed rail lines, which can achieve very high speeds: the high-speed rail lines should be able to run up to 400 km/h. They are, of course, completely different railways. Dmitry Medvedev, Prime Minister of the Russian Federation.
The high-speed railway will definitely give our region a new boost. We are extremely interested in implementing the Moscow-Kazan high-speed rail line project and commissioning before the start of sports events at the FIFA World Cup in 2018. The high-speed rail line in this case will become an important component in providing transportation support for the World Cup, as it will link three cities that are holding matches – Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and Kazan. We are doing everything to ensure that this project is implemented. Rustam Minnikhanov, President of the Republic of Tatarstan
The construction of the high-speed rail line and its current apparent Moscow-Kazan main line present a definite area and an entire field for innovation. In this case, we are tasked with implementing of a range of solutions and innovations connected not only with multiple units traveling at speeds of up to 400 km/h, but also with providing appropriate infrastructure, a management system, and traffic safety. Maksim Sokolov, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation
HSR “Moscow-Kazan” is the HSR 2 “Moscow – Yekaterinburg” pioneer sector project that implies the construction of the dedicated high-speed rail line passing through six regions and reducing the travel time between its capitals on average up to 1 hour. By the means of increasing the population mobility and creating a large number of new jobs HSR “Moscow-Kazan” will establish the foundation for the Russian Federation transport system future innovative modernization.
Russian Federation Transport Strategy 2030 includes the implementation of prioritized High-Speed Rail Line projects (HSR): HSR 1 “Moscow – Saint-Petersburg”, HSR 2 “Moscow – Kazan – Yekaterinburg” (with future incorporation of Perm, Ufa, and Chelyabinsk), and HSR Center – South “Moscow – Rostov-na-Donu - Adler”.
The planned high-speed and speed rail lines gravity zone population amounts to more than 100 million people, which is around 70% of the total Russian Federation population.
