The length of the transition, taking into account the approaches, is about 3,4 km.

The old bridge, the 1936 of the year of construction, did not fully meet the requirements of the safe, passenger and freight trains passed along it with a speed limit of 40 km / h. The new transition allows freight trains of increased weight to travel at speeds up to 90 km / h, and passenger trains up to 120 km / h.
