A cross-border railway crossing across the Amur River will be built

In the Jewish Autonomous Region, construction of a cross-border railway bridge over the Amur began, the press service of the regional administration said.

The investment project is being implemented in the area of ​​the village of Nizhneleninskoe from the Russian and the city of Tongjiang from the Chinese side. The first works were carried out from the Chinese coast a month and a half ago. A few hundred meters across the Amur stretched access roads for the delivery of building materials and structures.

During a recent working meeting with President Vladimir Putin, the region's governor, Alexander Vinnikov, informed the head of state about the somewhat protracted construction deadlines on the Russian side. "The President reacted immediately, instructing the Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation and the head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund to immediately inform him about the current situation with the construction of the bridge. A few days later the President met with the Director General of the RDIF, where Kirill Dmitriev reported on the measures taken by the fund for investment A week after this meeting, representatives of the RDIF and the Fund for the Development of the Far East and the Baikal Region left for Harbin. At their meetings with the leadership of the Heilongjiang Province and the Harbin Railway, all the details of the start of work from the Russian coast were clarified, "said the Governor.

According to him, the question of selecting a general contractor for the construction of a bridge is now being resolved. It is possible that they will be the same Chinese company that is already involved in construction. It is known that representatives of the RDIF are negotiating with her that she should undertake the construction of the Russian section of the bridge.

"From the point of view of technology, this is absolutely the right decision," stressed Alexander Vinnikov, "since there is no need to dock the crossing sections."

As the governor said, representatives of the RDIF assured the President that work on the construction of the bridge in our territory will begin no later than October of this year.

The construction of the bridge, according to Alexander Vinnikov, is closely connected with the creation in the Leninsky district of the territory of advanced development. A company has already been determined that will develop this zone. The Federal Agency Rosgranitsa plans to build a railway checkpoint here. The design and estimate documentation for the facility is ready, it passed state expertise. Funds have been allocated for the implementation of the project.
