Construction of the bridge over the Amur river in the area of Blagoveshchensk and Heihe will begin in July this year. This is reported on the website of the Blagoveshchensk district. The General contractor-JSC “Institute Giprostroymost” – presented the scheme of the object.
“The first stage is a road bridge crossing, and the second stage is planned to add a railway component”,– said the chief engineer of the project.
The territory where the work will be carried out is about 1.5 thousand hectares. In the area of the village of Kanikurgan, it is planned to build an overpass-an interchange with a road of the fourth category.
Tolls on the bridge will be paid for by motorists, so the scheme also provides a toll point. One of the sections will contain a multi-functional road service zone — a gas station complex and a recreation area for motorists, designed for 200 people. The construction of a 50-hectare transport and logistics complex for receiving cargo will also be carried out.
The estimated cost of international construction is 18.8 billion rubles, most of which is spent on the construction of the Russian part. The bridge is not being built for public money — it is a private partnership involving Chinese banks.
The Russian and Chinese authorities signed an agreement on the construction of the bridge in September 2015.
The project will make it possible to reduce the path of exports and imports by more than three times in time. The Amur region will also be able to earn money on transit.
