Russian Railways launches passenger services on Zhuravka - Millerovo line

RU EN

Russian Railways has launched long-distance passenger services along the new Zhuravka-Millerovo railway line.

With the commissioning of a new train timetable for 2017/2018, over 120 passenger and 30 freight trains began running daily on the stretch between Zhuravka and Millerovo.

Currently, the following trains stop at the new Zaitsevka and Kuteinikovo stations for boarding and disembarking passengers:

  • 34/33 Moscow-Vladikavkaz,
  • 49/50 St. Petersburg-Kislovodsk,
  • 139/140 Novosibirsk-Adler;

Train No. 20/19 Moscow - Rostov stops only at Kuteynikovo station.

Train information can be found in the section "Passengers" on the website of Russian Railways and obtained from the round-the-clock phone line of the Unified Information and Service Centre of Russian Railways under 8-800-775-00-00. Calls from anywhere in Russia are free of charge.

The Zhuravka - Millerovo main line has a length of 137 kilometres and became part of the high-speed railway link connecting Central Russia with the Black Sea coast. It is designed to handle maximum passenger train speeds of 140 kph and freight train speeds of up to 90 kph.

In the Rostov and Voronezh regions, 7 new stations have been built: Zaitsevka, Sergeevka, Soborovka, Kuteinikovo, Vinogradovka, Kolodezi and Bochenkovo.

As part the project, Zhuravka station has also been reconstructed, while at Zaitsevka station a pedestrian bridge and a station building with a total area of ​​494 square metres were built. A platform and a pedestrian bridge were constructed at Bochenkovo station.

At Kuteinikovo, a station with an area of ​​1071 square metres and a projected daily capacity of 100 passengers is under construction, as well as a pedestrian bridge.

All these design solutions provide for the availability of infrastructure for low-mobility population groups and a comfortable and convenient stay while at the stations.

Test train runs on the new line began in August 2017 and freight services started on 14 September 2017.

The first freight trains, which were diverted around a stretch in temporary operation, transported wagons with grain, iron ore and construction materials.

The test runs made it possible to check the readiness of the railway infrastructure and the operation of traffic control systems, as well as to train the engine crew.
