    Trans-Siberian Railway to have an alternative

    The authorities of Murmansk Oblast and Kamchatka Krai have decided to give the Trans-Siberian Railway a northern alternative by establishing a container line between the ports of Murmansk and Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. It is estimated that transportation of containers on the Northern Sea Route would be cheaper with less transit time than that on Trans-Siberian route.
