As EastRussia was informed in the press service of the RF Ministry of Defense, the deputy head of the Russian military department Dmitry Bulgakov reported that the Railway Troops continue to carry out tasks to reconstruct the Ulak - Fevralsk section of the Baikal-Amur Mainline.

“To date, a group of 1 personnel and 500 units of modern equipment has been involved in this task. The site runs through permafrost and is the most difficult along the entire length of the highway, ”he added.

Deforestation and clearing of the right-of-way have already been completed, 845 thousand cubic meters of earthworks have been completed, which is 113% of the current year's plan.
