For a whole year, the capital of our Motherland, the city-hero Moscow actually lives without one type of city transport — trolleybus. Ex-metropolitan «horned» transport is now working in various cities of the Russian Federation. The list consists of three dozen as regional centers such as Kaluga, Tula, Ryazan, Smolensk, Nizhny Novgorod, Kostroma, Voronezh, Ulyanovsk, etc., and non-altitude centers.
Moscow, in turn, getting rid of the contacting network hanging wires, according to the city authorities, solved the problem of «visual pollution». But Moscow is another continent. But what happened from this distribution of free generosity, we will now tell.
As you know, the biggest park of the trolley buses received Saratov. For this city, Vyacheslav Volodin specifically decided on this city. 90 trolley buses and kilometers of the contact network is a gift of the capital by the Volga region. Moreover, a trolleybus movement on the bridge was restored through a Volga, connecting Saratov and the city of Engels. Yes, yes, this is the one where the trolley trolleybus plant «died». True, we will tell about this a little later. In the meantime, back to Saratov.
Distribution of Moscow Trolleybuses came across the elections. The speaker of the parliament invited to Saratov to the head of the government of the country of Mikhail Mishoustina, and they visited the Kirov depot together. And there they promised Saratov a whole speed tram.
True, today in the Russian standard-regulatory framework there is no concept of «high-speed tram», and such an accelerated transport is called as a «tram line with high-speed sites.» But it is not important.
The fact itself is important — never in the history of the country, the head of government did not attend the depot of urban electric transport!
But these positive solutions concern only one city, and what is the rest?
And here we come to the phenomenon, which is observed only on the same sixth of the sushi.
The distribution of Moscow his trolleybus park provoked a boom shopping of new trolley buses. It does not matter by federal, regional or other sources. The trolley buses «passed» through the federal program «Clean air», and now Novokuznetsk, Chelyabinsk, Krasnoyarsk and other metallurgical cities buy batch of these horned vehicles.
But in addition, the authorities of other settlements drew attention to the state of horned vehicles.
In the neighboring Kazan, they even began to build a new trolleybus line around the village of Universiade and took the Trolleybus of the Ufa production «Citizen». The new line is open in Ivanovo. Finally, new trolley buses came to Miass. And such a news about the horny transport will be raised as «from the horns of abundance.»
And the authorities of Nizhny Novgorod went even further. They decided to organize the assembly of models of Belarusian Trolleybuses of BKM on their squares. Our canal
As it always happens, the demand gives rise to a sentence. But, as we have already noted, the largest trolleybus plant «Trolza» from Engels ordered for a long time. And this fact, along with a sharp increase in demand for «slingshots», the people are called trolleybus, provoked industrial activity.
Today in Russia there is a plant in Vologda «Trans Alfa», which collects the Avangard Trolleybus model with an autonomous move. Another plant is located in Ufa, where the Trolleybus «Citizen» is produced from Maz’s Body. We are also on our channel
On the places left by the «Trollea» of the plant in Engels, another enterprise «PKTS» began production of the Trolleybuses of the Admiral model, the first parties of which are already working in Omsk and Ivanovo.
But the most important thing.
Of course, our giant KAMAZ, paying attention to the passenger sector, is working to increase twice the capacity of its subsidiary of up to 3,000 vehicles per year. There will be a new model of trolleybus KAMAZ-62825 in the bodies of the new bus NEFAZ-5299. Also for the new trolley busement is declared an autonomous course of up to 20 km without a contact line. This will allow to extend the trolleybus route to the neighborhoods where the contact network is not arranged.
And one more manufacturer enters the trolley buses segment —
This is such in our country there is an imperceptible to the eye trolleybus boom. But 90 trolleybus systems of the country were waiting for this for a long time. Highot Park Wear in many cities approached 90% and higher.
