BOND A. R. ;


In view of the isolation of the north Siberian minerals complex of Noril'sk, the provision of adequate interregional transportation, linking Noril'sk with the economic and population centers of the Soviet Union, has been crucial to the success of the city's development. Initial arrangements were inadequate until completion of the Noril'sk-Dudinka Railroad in 1937. Extension of Northern Sea Route operations into the winter season, improvement of air service and terminal facilities, and proposals for rail links to the south and west all are attempts to alleviate the city's traditional transport isolation. Urban mass transit functions efficiently because of high population densities and a limited number of trip-generating points.
