Russian Olympic City Prepares For 2014 Games

New village of Nekrasovskoye is being built to accommodate people moved from the zone of Olympic construction.

The village of Nekrasovskoye will have a well-developed social infrastructure.

Many houses in Sochi will have red roofs due to the latest architectural plans.

Special attention is paid to an ecological component of the project.

The village of Nekrasovskoye will have 112 detached houses.

The village of Nekrasovskoye covers 24.2 square kilometers and is located in close proximity to the Black Sea.

Imeretinsky Port will be built in line with a government decree on the construction of Olympic facilities.

The port is also a part of the program of Sochi’s development as an alpine climate resort.

The port’s purpose will be to handle cargo shipments for the construction of the Olympic facilities.

Plans exist to convert the port into a yachting marina in 2014.

The cargo sector will consist of eight modern docks, capable of handling 5 million tonnes of cargo per year.

The first stage, capacity 2 million tonnes per year, is due to be commissioned in the first quarter of 2010.

The whole port should be in operation by the end of 2010.

Being put in operation, Imeretinsky port will resolve a task of transportation construction materials directly to the sites, by-passing the city, which will help to discharge federal and city roads.

In the next two years, over 50 million tonnes of cargo will be delivered to Olympic facilities via all transportation systems.

The region of Sochi expects significant growth of transportation facilities due to Olympic construction.

Almost 60 billion rubles will be spent on the construction of Olympic facilities in Sochi, partly from the federal budget and partly from private investors.
