BEIJING, February 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Construction of first railway bridge from Russia’s Nizhneleninskoye to China’s Tongjiang across the Amur River was launched on the border between the two countries on Wednesday, Xinhua news agency reported.
The annual throughput capacity of the bridge will make 5.2 million tons at the first stage of the project, and around 21 million tons of cargoes will be delivered annually through this new railway link connecting Russia, China and other countries in Asia-Pacific region at the second stage of the project.
