Of the total funds, $142.5m is to be spent to build a 53-kilometer bypass rail road around Verkhnekamsky potassium deposit.

The $351.5m railroad is reportedly also to get $79.5m subsidy from the federal government, $101m funding from Russian Railways and $28.5m investment from another local potassium fertilizers producer Silvinit.
