The development strategy of “Russian Railways” OAO provides for increasing competitiveness and strengthening the company’s market position. Due to the increase in Russia’s foreign trade turnover with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region, the growth of transit freight traffic between Europe and Asia, and the need to implement the country’s transit potential in the context of the globalization of the transport service market the railway industry faces the task of handling the growing volumes of traffic in the direction of the Far Eastern ports. One of the essential goals until 2030 is to increase the country’s transit capacity. Its implementation is a priority in the field of international standing of our country. Along with the BaikalAmur Mainline, the Eastern polygon is pivotal in solving this problem. Its development will ensure the connection of transport flows from West to East, will make changes in the routes of world trade, thereby increasing the share of Russia in Eurasian transit. The degree of efficient railway transport operation depends on the creation of favorable conditions for modernization, transition to the innovative development path and sustainable growth of the national economy. This generally contributes to the conditioning of Russia’s leadership in the world economic system, as there is a new geopolitical landscape globally evolving at present, whose contours should be considered in the foreseeable future. In today’s conditions of railway management, it is impossible to head over to an innovative path without proper infrastructure development, affecting the performance of structural units and requiring investments.
