HEIHE (China), September 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The construction of a unique cableway linking Russia’s Blagoveshchensk with China’s Heihe is due to start in September 2015, the Chinese city mayor, Zhang Enliang said on Wednesday.
“This will probably serve as a good example for developing the border regions of China and Russia,” Enliang said.
The cableway construction is expected to begin just three months after the launch of another major Russian-Chinese infrastructure project, a bridge over the Amur River.
“Many years have passed since the agreement on the construction was reached. Now the government of the Amur Region and the people’s government of Heihe have defined the timeframe for building the bridge,” the Chinese official said.
The all-weather cableway will be able to transport up to 2,000 passengers per hour. Each of 12 types of cable cars can carry 40 people.
The construction of the unique cableway is part of a major project to create the Amur tourist recreation cluster with the facilities to be located close to the Russian-Chinese border.
