Implementation of an interregional project of the construction of the railway «Belkomur» will be included in the full resource potential of the Arkhangelsk region and neighbouring areas, said the Governor of Orlov, speaking at the enlarged session of the Federation Council Committee on economic policy.

Among them — and interregional project for the construction of the railway «Belkomur», — quotes the press service of the regional government of Orlov’s words.
