The interests of Russia, as a Eurasian state, must be geared not only toward the West, East and North but also toward the South. The transport capabilities of Trans-Sib (Trans-Siberian Railway) will be enhanced dramatically once it is connected with the Indian Ocean via a network of meridional railways. In particular, this would provide an entry for grain exports into countries of Central and South Asia. Some elements of the Indo-Siberian arterial railway are traceable even in the existing network of the former Soviet railways in Central Asia. It is suggested that the project be started from the Chui-Fergana Trans-Kyrgyz Railway.
Keywords: Transsib, Central Asia, Indo-Siberian continental railroad, multimodal transport corridor, cargo transportation.
