The Russian Railways JSC invests over 2 billion roubles in construction of a railway bridge across the Zeya River, the press office of the Zabaykal railway said on Wednesday.
The bridge is intended for ensuring passage of trains by Trans-Siberian railway in the Eastern direction. A 955-meter bridge will be located 25 meters from a bridge built in 1936, which is being exploited now.
Until the end of 2016, builders will mount four pillars, two span structures, as well as they will have to erect a railway embankment both by the left and the right sides of the river.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2018. A total amount of investments will be about 4,7 bln roubles.
