The Northern Bypass of Omsk will pass in close proximity to the Avangard SEZ
On September 13, a concession agreement was signed between the head of the Omsk Region, Alexander Burkov, and Gazprombank for the construction of the 62-kilometer Northern Bypass. The four-lane highway will connect the Omsk-Tyumen and Omsk-Novosibirsk federal roads. It also provides for the construction of bridges across the Irtysh and Om, as well as about 10 overpasses. In total, the project will cost 63.2 billion rubles. Of these, 20 billion will be allocated by the bank. The rest of the funding is planned to be attracted from the federal and regional budgets.
“Construction of a bypass road will solve a number of issues: reduce the traffic load on city highways and thereby reduce the rate of wear and tear due to freight traffic, and also significantly reduce the carbon footprint in the city. I emphasize that the project is important not only for our particular region is a transport link with Eastern and Central Siberia. This is strategically important for building new supply chains and developing regional production under sanctions pressure,” Governor Burkov said in his telegram channel.
