Railway approaches to the port were reconstructed and expanded. Old roads, viaducts and bridges were reconstructed, new ones were built. Construction of a new federal road from Veliky Novgorod to Ust-Luga has begun. A new power supply line has been built from Leningrad nuclear power plant to a new high-capacity power substation located at the territory of the Project.
В состав проекта Мультимодальный комплекс «Усть-Луга» входят: грузовой аэропорт; сухой порт; промышленно-логистический комплекс; индустриальные бизнес-парки; авиационные, складской и таможенный терминалы; жилой и рекреационный комплексы. Все эти проекты, совместно с морским портом Усть-Луга, позволят создать на западной границе России крупнейший транспортно-логистический узел (хаб) в стране.
