Russia and China open first railway bridge over Amur River

Moscow, Nov 16 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) on Wednesday announced the inauguration of the first railway bridge across the Amur River on the border with China.

The first train to cross that facility departed from the Nizhneleninskoye section, in the Jewish Autonomous Oblast, to the Chinese city of Tongjiang, the TASS news agency reported on Wednesday.

The bridge, which measures 2.2-kilometer, was built by virtue of an agreement signed in 2008, financed more than 70 percent by Russian companies, and its maximum throughput could reach 20 million tons of goods per year.

The traffic on the bridge opens a new transport corridor between Russia and China, thus removing several infrastructure restrictions.

The potential of Russian-Chinese cooperation will be related to the development of transportation and logistics.

China is Russia’s major trading and economic partner. The volume of business is showing steady growth and has already exceeded 150 billion dollars this year, RDIF Director Kiril Dmitriev said.
