The Future is Here

Russia’s federal government has set aside RUB 6 billion (€81.2 million) in 2015 to design its planned high-speed railway between Moscow and Kazan.

Russian Railways (RZD) is planning to issue a tender in 2015 to select a partner to conduct surveying and project design work for the 770-kilometre Russian-gauge railway.

The route, which is expected to have a line speed of up to 400 km/h, will link Moscow, Nizhny, Novgorod and Kazan. In the future, the Russian government hopes the line will form part of a new high-speed rail corridor between Moscow, Astana, Kazakhstan, and Beijing, China. For more see here.
