"Russian Railways" completed construction of a new bridge on Sakhalin
In the area of the Zaozernoe Station of the Far Eastern Railway (Sakhalin), a new bridge was commissioned, the press service of the Russian Railways reports.
The construction of a new bridge in the vicinity of Zaozernoye station, at 228 km of the Korsakov - Nogliki line, was started by the specialists of the Sakhalin Bridge Crew last summer. The bridge is about 20 meters long, but its construction is part of a large-scale reconstruction of the northern mouth of the station.
- It is at this station that trains of three directions are formed - to Nogliki, to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk and Kholmsk. There is also a constant shipment of crushed stone to wagons from a nearby quarry, - said Andrey Vaulin, Deputy Head of the Far Eastern Railway for the Sakhalin Territorial Administration. - However, due to the weak development of station tracks and signaling, centralization and blocking facilities, we could not reach the specified volumes. From now on, after the completion of the planned program, the work of the station will become more efficient.
As Deputy Head of the Far Eastern Directorate of Infrastructure Dmitry Simukov said, in this part of the station, in addition to the construction of a new reinforced concrete bridge, the old rail-grille has been replaced with a new one, on reinforced concrete sleepers. The total length of the reconstructed path was one thousand meters. In addition, it was lifted from 50 to 120 cm. Thus, due to the reinforcement of the upper structure of the path, it will be possible to avoid and flood this neck during spring floods.
The cost of all work on the reconstruction of the northern mouth of Zaozernoe Station, including the new bridge, is about 250 million rubles.
