In the Primorsky Territory, the reconstruction of the Kiparisovo Tunnel

In Primorye, the reconstruction of a railway tunnel on the Kiparisovo - Nadezhdinskoye section has been completed. The object, 946,5 m long, was built in 1916. Back in the 1960s, a project was developed to overhaul the structure. However, work began only last year. Due to the closure for repairs, all trains began to run through a single-track tunnel, built 13 years ago parallel to the old one.

During the reconstruction, the builders made waterproofing and drainage along the entire length of the structure, refined the foundation. In addition, the drainage system was replaced in the tunnel, contact networks, power supply, alarm and communication systems were installed, a continuous path was laid, and approaches to the object were also upgraded. Total investment exceeded 1 billion rubles.

The Kiparisovsky tunnel opens up access to large port areas of the Primorsky Territory, where cargo handling is growing. According to the Association of Commercial Sea Ports, in January-October, the stevedoring companies of Vostochny increased cargo turnover to 48,5 million tons (+ 20,4%), Nakhodka - up to 17,6 million tons (+ 14,8%), Vladivostok - to 12,9 million tons (+ 6,8%). The stevedores themselves testify to the increase in volumes. For example, Evraz Nakhodka Commercial Sea Port OJSC informed that the total cargo turnover of the enterprise in October amounted to 878,8 thousand tons against last year's result of 630,5 thousand tons.
