On Sakhalin increase the safety of railway crossings

The arrangement of the street-road network and the safety of railway crossings was discussed at a meeting of the Sakhalin Oblast Interagency Commission for Road Safety. The event was conducted by the Minister of Transport and Road Economy Vladimir Degtyarev, the press service of the regional administration informs.

Since the beginning of 2014, two road accidents have occurred on the railway tracks in the region, which entailed serious consequences - five people died and more than ten were injured. The total damage to the railway was about 12 million rubles.

According to Andrei Vaulin, Deputy Head of the Far Eastern Railway for Territorial Administration, specialists have already compiled a list of the most dangerous level crossings. It is headed by a move on the 24th km of the Ilyinskoe - Arsentievka highway. There were four accidents in this area only from 2005 to 2014. Next on the list are the 36th km of the route Khristoforovka - Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and Sokol station. Andrey Vaulin suggested installing cameras for video recording of violations, artificial irregularities in the most dangerous areas, or limiting the speed of movement to 40 kilometers per hour.

At the meeting, special attention was paid to six crossings, which are located within the city of Nevelsk. Almost all of them do not meet the existing requirements. The movement of cars on two level crossings in the Smirnykhovsky district, according to Andrey Vaulin, can be closed altogether by building a bypass road. Also of concern is the move "Fedorovka" (between 1st Oktyabrskaya and Lenina streets) in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. According to the Minister of Transport and Roads, Vladimir Degtyarev, a command has already been given to start designing an overhead pedestrian crossing in this area.
