Joint Russian-Chinese company to build a new bridge to China

Russia and China have established a joint company that will build a bridge across the Amur in the Blagoveshchensk region. Mayor of the Chinese city of Heihe Zhang Enliang said this today at a meeting with participants in the journalist rally "Border of Russia and China - Border of Peace and Cooperation".

"We have created a joint company that will manage the construction of the bridge. The new Russian-Chinese structure will allow us to start designing the facility, developing standards for a new bridge and determining the amount of investment required to implement the project," ITAR-TASS quoted him as saying.

Reporters from ITAR-TASS and Xinhua news agencies, Ren-TV, Rossiyskaya Gazeta and People's Daily, radio of China and some other media are planning to visit 10 cities in the Heilongjiang province bordering Russia in 5 days. The first on this list was Heihe, which is located opposite the Russian Blagoveshchensk.

Officials of the two countries discuss the idea of ​​connecting neighboring cities with a bridge from 1995 of the year. Then the two countries signed an agreement of intent to build a capital crossing between Blagoveshchensk and Heihe.

In April 2014, the governor of Priamurye Oleg Kozhemyako raised the issue of the need to build a bridge between Blagoveshchensk and Heihe in a personal meeting with Russian Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev. Already in July the project of the future crossing was presented at the Russian-Chinese exhibition EXPO in Harbin. At the bilateral meeting, the governors of Heilongjiang Province Lu Hao and Priamurye Oleg Kozhemyako decided that Russian and Chinese companies should finish the bridge design in a short time and begin construction of the bridge in 2015. First of all, the bridge will erect an automobile crossing between Blagoveshchensk and Heihe. Its length will be about 1 kilometers. Machines will move along two lanes with a separation barrier and pedestrian droshkas. Later, the construction of the railway section of the bridge will begin.
