Alexey Zhurbin welcome speech
On behalf of Stroyproekt Engineering Group and on my own behalf, I welcome all the participants and partners of the conference "Transport infrastructure engineering. Development impulse: Transport Corridor Moscow-Helsinki." Our country’s modern transport infrastructure should meet the needs of the economy and the population, be safe and comfortable. It is the designers who lay the foundation for any future project: they determine technical parameters and structural durability, and choose materials and technologies. Thus the design work is perhaps the most important element in the process of the creation of transport infrastructure.
Today, the engineering community faces a number of systemic problems related to the technical regulations and technical policy. Solving these problems should improve the level of design in the country. Therefore, the discussion of pressing issues and finding ways and methods to solve them is the main agenda of the conference.
We should pay special attention to the design of complex and unique projects. This year the Western High Speed Diameter is scheduled to be open to traffic. I am sure that future generations of bridge builders will make use of invaluable experience gained during the construction of this complex infrastructure project.
I wish the participants and guests of the conference success, effective work and active cooperation.
