Strategy for the development of the transport system of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region for the period up to 2030
In order to synchronize the development of the transport system of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, on December 8, 2016, the Coordination Council for the Development of the Transport System of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region approved Strategy for the Development of the Transport System of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region for the period up to 2030.
Taking into account the changing economic situation and the adoption of new documents defining the development of the transport complex, during 2021, the Directorate, together with the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, the Government of St. Petersburg and the Government of the Leningrad Region, updated the Strategy.
The updated Strategy was approved by the decision of the Coordinating Council on February 22, 2022.
Ensuring the sustainable development and effective functioning of the transport system of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region to meet the needs of the population and participants of economic activity in affordable, high-quality and safe transport services and reliable transport links aimed at creating a comfortable environment and improving the quality of life of citizens.
In accordance with the national development goals of the Russian Federation, the Strategy is aimed at solving the following tasks:
The strategy provides for the use of the following mechanisms to ensure its implementation:
- development of the "user pays" mechanism in ensuring the maintenance of transport infrastructure and regulating its use by carriers and the public, including for the purpose of stimulating the use of public transport and reduction of the use of personal vehicles in St. Petersburg;
- development of the "polluter pays" mechanism as a mechanism for motivating transport organizations and the population to reduce the negative impact of transport on the environment and health;
- the use of the "accessible to all" mechanism, which provides for the organization and provision of transport services on equal (non-discriminatory) terms to all categories of the population, including limited mobility groups;
- implementation of mechanisms of economically justified and competitive tariff regulation in the field of transport;
- motivation of transport enterprises to upgrade vehicle fleets, including through the use of leasing and state support measures;
- increase in the volume of multimodal freight and passenger transportation;
- ensuring the digital transformation of the transport industry and the development of the information system for the interaction of various modes of transport;
- implementation of intelligent transport systems, development of systems for collecting and processing large data arrays (Big Data), including environmental monitoring in transport, the use of BIM technologies for managing the life cycle of transport infrastructure, the introduction of artificial intelligence on all types of transport;
- research and development work in the areas that ensure the implementation of the Strategy.
Period of implementation:
- Stage I (until 2024): a medium-term planning period during which it is planned to implement priority measures aimed at solving priority tasks related to improving transport services to the population, increasing cargo turnover of port facilities and eliminating infrastructure restrictions;
- Stage II (2025-2030): a long-term planning period during which major projects for the development of transport infrastructure are being implemented, which will significantly increase the transport potential of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region through the construction of HSR, new highways, high-speed off-street transport lines and transport hubs, the development of port and terminal and warehouse complexes.
