Kadyrov asked Putin to build a highway to Grozny (it could cost a trillion rubles)

The head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, asked President Vladimir Putin to include the Trans-Caucasian high-speed highway into the spatial development strategy until 2025, the Kommersant newspaper writes. The cost of the project can greatly exceed a trillion rubles.
Kommersant familiarized himself with Kadyrov's letter of June 15 in which he mentions the plans of the Russian Railways for the construction of the High-Speed ​​Railway Center-South. The head of Chechnya proposes to construct the Rostov-on-Don-Krasnodar section as the first stage of this line and, separately, the Krasnodar-Grozny highway.
Putin instructed the Minister of Economy and the Minister of Transport to consider the possibility of including this project in the program and report back. In both departments, the newspaper confirmed that the order had been received.In the Russian Railways they promised to form a position and send it to the Ministry of Transport.
If you focus on the cost of the high-speed railway network Moscow-Kazan or Moscow-Tula, the cost of the Trans-Caucasian high-speed railway to Grozny could reach 1.2 trillion rubles. without rolling stock. For the construction of the nearest high-speed rail project, Moscow-Kazan, Russia attracts primarily Chinese funds.
The head of Infoline-Analytics, Mikhail Burmistrov, notes that if we are talking about adapting the existing infrastructure for high-speed traffic (speeds up to 250 km / h), similar to how Russian Railways organized the Sapsanov work between Moscow and St. Petersburg, then on the line Rostov-on-Don - Krasnodar in the horizon 2022-2025, it may be appropriate.
On the line Krasnodar - Grozny, you can run in two stages "Swallows", and then "Sapsans", says Mr. Burmistrov. But the construction of a new infrastructure for high-speed lines with speeds up to 400 km / h remains an extremely risky project "due to high capital intensity, ambiguous economic efficiency due to the active development of low-cost airlines and dependence on foreign partners."
