Opening of railway bridge to China

The first in Russia cross-border railway bridge across the Amur River to China was opened in the Jewish Autonomous Region. Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev took part in the ceremony of completion of the construction of the Russian part of the railway bridge. According to him, the Russian side is ready to open the bridge from its part as soon as the Chinese partners will announce the opening of their own.

Bridge crossing Nizhneleninskoye — Tongjiang across the Amur River became the first railway bridge between Russia and China. The project of international importance was implemented on the territory of the Jewish Autonomous Region and Heilongjiang Province within the framework of an intergovernmental agreement between the Russian Federation and China. The length of the bridge exceeds 2.2 km, 309 of them – on the Russian side. It is single-track and has a combined gauge for Chinese and Russian standards. The launch of the bridge will reduce the distance for cargo traveling from Russia to the northeast of China by 700 km.
