Investment in reconstruction of railways on Taman Peninsula amounted to about 700 million roubles in 2017
In 2017, about 700 million roubles were invested in the complex reconstruction of the 9 kilometre stretch between Yurovsky - Anapa - Temryuk - Caucasus on North Caucasus Railways.
The Taman peninsula lies in Russia’s Krasnodar Krai and borders on the Sea of Azov in the north, the Strait of Kerch in the west and the Black Sea to the south.
The construction of the second tracks was completed on the 18.9 km Yurowski - Krasnaya Strela section and the 12 km Krasnaya Strela - Starotyarovka stretch.
In addition, the roadbed was filled in on the Starotyarovka - Vyshesteblievskaya station-to-station block.
The implementation of the programme "Complex reconstruction of the 9 km - Yurovsky - Anapa - Temryuk - Kavkaz section” will reduce train travel time and increase the volume of transported goods in the direction of the ports of the Taman Peninsula.
