According to Telecompaper, Russian national operator Rostelecom has started work on the construction of fixed line telecoms infrastructure alongside the Amur motorway in the Far Eastern Federal District. The telco will reportedly extend its services to 34 agglomerations alongside the Chita-Amazar section of the motorway, which is situated in the Transbaykal province. Meanwhile, a dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) network is planned for deployment in the Chita-Chernyshevsk area, with around 450km of fibre expected to be laid. Rostelecom reportedly plans to link the new infrastructure to Khabarovsk Krai and the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, both of which are situated to the east of the Amur Oblast. Amur, which is situated near the Russia-China border, is a prominent site of uranium mining and processing facilities.
