Subject: Part II - IEWS Russian Regional Report for 20 November 1997


-- The Italian-Swiss alliance of IMPREJILO and NCC have won a $150 million
contract to build a new subway tunnel in ST. PETERSBURG to replace the
tunnel between the Ploshchad muzhestva and Lesnaya stations that was
flooded last year and remains out of service. The project should be
complete by the year 2000, when the next gubernatorial elections will be
held, but it is not clear where the funding will come from and when
construction will begin. Governor Vladimir Yakovlev would like to use the
project to show that he is an effective leader in the city. St. Petersburg
workers spent more than a year trying to save the old tunnel, but a
committee composed of domestic and international experts has now concluded
that it will be easier to build a new one. The new tunnel will be built
20-25 meters higher and 200 meters over from the old one. (Kommersant-Daily
