A number of decisions were made this year at the federal level aimed at providing the investment support for the development of infrastructure of the Trans-Siberian Railway Line in order to increase the freight traffic.
Reconstruction of the old Obluchensky tunnel, which was built in 1915, begins shortly. The trains in this section will be rolling without interruptions.
Construction of the New Obluchensky Tunnel, which is 862 meters long, at the 8193rd kilometer in Obluchie-Izvestkovaya section of the Far Eastern Railway began in the fall of 2011.
