In the Sakhalin Region, Russian Railways continues a program to modernize the railway infrastructure. Six bridges have been commissioned this year.

As the newspaper writes “Beep”, New facilities are located on the section from Korsakov to Nogliki. The bridges were built over the rivers Lesnaya, Gornaya, and Slingshot. Previously, there were buildings here from the beginning of the 20th century. The new bridges will not only allow heavy trains to pass through, but are also designed for increased flood water flow.

The modernization of infrastructure on Sakhalin is one of the most ambitious programs of Russian Railways. It is included in the Transport Strategy of Russia as a priority. In total, Russian Railways plans to replace and modernize 865 km of main tracks from a narrow gauge of 1067 mm to the all-Russian standard - 1520 mm.
