Currently, the development of Surgut is stipulated by a number of favorable conditions. The city has got an expedient economic and transport-geographical position as it is located at the intersection of a trunk-railway with a powerful waterway - the river Ob. The Surgut Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge across the Ob River at Surgut, Russia. It is one of the longest in Siberia.
The city became a significant transportation hub with a railway line, a highway, an international airport and a river port located there. A pipeline transport (the largest node of oil and gas pipelines) has also appeared there.
