Nenets AO wants road connection with Komi Republic

The Nenets AO

-The development of a transport connection between the Komi Republic and the Nenets Autonomous Okrug is vital for regional industry and economy, deputy governor of the Nenets AO administration said during a visit to Komi this week.

Mr. Mikhail Lapshin came to the neighbouring Komi Republic to talk transport and infrastructure. A road between the two regions are under construction, but is expected to be finished only in year 2015. Currently, the Nenets AO is landlocked without any road connection to the neighbouring regions. Regional authorities in the Nenets AO, Komi Republic and Arkhangelsk Oblast now intend to jointly address the federal government with request for more infrastructure subsidies.
