The turnover between our country and the Nations of Asia in the near future will increase significantly. In the Amur region builders erected a railway bridge over the river Zeya.
Russia will have the opportunity to increase trade with China, South Korea and Japan. The bridge is not stand up to modern rhythm, the flow of trains have to severely restrict. At the entrance to the bridge driver is forced to drop the speed of the train twice. The crossing 1936 buildings not yet 100 years old, but, experts state, the concrete pillars under the water pressure and weight are gradually destroyed. So as not to impede the movement and prevent disaster. In the Railways decided to build a new bridge, and the Soviet bear. While the adjacent building had reconstruction, there have only replaced the metal part. For the construction of a new bridge is allocated more than 4 billion rubles. Now teams of riprap roadbed, begins to build the Foundation of the shore abutments.
The building will be assembled from high-strength materials, support from a super-healthy concrete. The first major overhaul, promise builders, need only a quarter of a century. These bridges are the only threads that connect Central Russia with the Far East. From East to West are empty trains, and in the opposite direction taking a valuable cargo to the far East and from countries of the Asia-Pacific region, such as oil, ore, raw materials for heavy and light industry. In recent years, the volume of domestic and export shipments increased significantly, and the bridge, which was built in the Stalin era, can not withstand such loads. Now on this stretch of the TRANS-Baikal railway pass to 85 trains per day. The record was set in 1980-ies, when it flew from the 103 composition. Theoretically, this can obscure these indicators.
The bridge will be erected in 2018. A Stalinist structure that was built by the prisoners, understand, once is fully operational the new terminal.
