On the Northern Siberia Trunk-railway Concept

The paper analyses the Northern Siberia Trunk-railway Concept developed by the Institute for Regional Policy. It is shown that the Concept does not contain those required provisions which could make the Concept a scientifically valid document going before the implementation of this project and allowing for an uncertainty factor as the project is of a unique scope and complexity. The institutional aspects also require proper elaboration. The technical and economic indicators applied to validate the project proved to be disputable. We suggest that the expected effectiveness of the Project should be compared with other projects concerning the development of the Siberian railway system, and then the priorities of such projects be determined.
