In addition, until 2027, a comprehensive modernization of 84 checkpoints will be carried out across the country, including 26 checkpoints in the Far East (of which 8 major car checkpoints are funded and operational).
“Currently, an active reconstruction of the Kani-Kurgan, Markovo and Kraskino car checkpoints is underway with a completion date of up to 2024,” the report says.
The deadlines for the implementation of control points on the border with China fully comply with all the requirements of urban planning legislation. In 2022, traffic was opened through the Nizhneleninskoye and Zabaikalsk railway checkpoints, as well as the Kurgan road checkpoint.
In addition, the capacity of the Kraskino, Pogranichny and Turiy Rog checkpoints was expanded. “Currently, the main constraint for logistics is the restrictions imposed by the Chinese side,” the Ministry of Transport noted.
