The investment project “Murmansk — Petrozavodsk, construction of second railway tracks” is being implemented in accordance with the orders of the Russian Government on the development of railway infrastructure on the approaches to the ports of North-West Russia and the construction of the Lavna Sea Trade Port to ensure the passage of additional cargo traffic (18 million t) to existing and under construction ports located in the northern part of the Kola Peninsula.

In 2020, at a meeting between the Governor of the Kostroma Region and the General Director of Russian Railways, an agreement was reached on the technical re-equipment of the Kostroma station complex.

The design documentation was developed by Lengiprotrans JSC in 2021 under the leadership of the chief architect of the project for the industrial and civil buildings and structures department K.A. Balykina.

According to the forecasts of JSC "IERT" by 2030, the population of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region will exceed 8.5 million people (currently - 7.1 million).

Compared to 2018, the volume of suburban passenger traffic at the St. Petersburg hub will grow 1.8 times and will amount to 142.4 million people per year, and the volume of cargo to the sea terminals of OZD and St. Petersburg will increase 1.4 times - up to 261 million tons per year.

Design and survey work on the construction of the new railway bridge began immediately after the collapse of the span of the old structure on June 1, 2020, under the influence of the abundant flood waters of the Kola River.

The survey and design work was completed in a short time, which made it possible to restore communication between Murmansk and the center of the country in a record 105 days. On September 28, 2020, train traffic began on the new railway bridge.

The Strategy for the Development of Railway Transport in the Russian Federation until 2030 and the Transport Strategy of the Russian Federation provide for the construction of new express and high-speed lines. The implementation of the Moscow - St. Petersburg high-speed railway project (VSZhM-1) will improve transport links between the regions of the Russian Federation, reduce passenger travel time and provide them with a qualitatively new level of service.

In December 2020, JSC Lengiprotrans completed the development of pre-design documentation for the Shongui Yard.

For the first time, Lengiprotrans began to consider the development of railway approaches to the port of Ust-Luga in 1992, when it took part in the development of the General Scheme for the development of seaports on the shores of the Gulf of Finland of the Baltic Sea.

The impetus for large-scale construction was the active development of the port to increase the cargo turnover to 180 million tons, of which 118 million tons were planned to be delivered by rail.

The development of the railway infrastructure of the Ust-Luga railway hub and on the approaches to it was dictated by the need to increase the volume of cargo transshipment at the Ust-Luga Commercial Sea Port.

In the 1930s, engineers of Lentransproekt (since 1951 - Lengiprotrans) developed facilities in the Far East. A section of the Suchan-Daubikhe Far East railway was built according to the institute's project. It was subsequently dismantled. Suchan station was renamed into Partizansk station, Daubikhe station - into Arseniev station.
