State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin held a meeting to prepare large parliamentary hearings on the development of urban public electric transport in the regions. Without solving this problem, it is impossible to improve the quality of life of people, the Chairman of the State Duma emphasized.
Representatives of the government, regions and enterprises are invited to participate in large parliamentary hearings. It is planned to discuss the renewal of the rolling stock, the restoration of convenient routes, the modernization of infrastructure and the functioning of electric transport.
Parliamentary hearings will be held in the State Duma on October 6. Start at 11:00.
On September 13, Volodin opened the autumn session of the State Duma. The development of public electric transport in the regions will become one of the priorities of the deputies in the coming months.
The speaker of the State Duma noted that the problem is especially relevant for regional centers. Volodin recalled that tram and trolleybus routes were closed in a number of them.
“The regions cannot resolve this issue on their own,” said the Chairman of the State Duma.
The deputies will also deal with the development of river transport. Earlier, Volodin suggested holding field hearings on this topic in Nizhny Novgorod. Representatives of the government, state corporations and subjects of the Federation will be invited to participate.
