Amur River Rail Bridge project aims to create a new trade corridor between the Nizhneleninskoye Jewish Autonomous Region in Russia and the Heilongjiang Province in China.
The Russian side is responsible for constructing 310 meters of the estimated 2,209 meters long bridge. The Russian section is estimated to cost 10 billion rubles. The Chinese side of the bridge was built by Chinese contractors in 2014.
Russian-Chinese agreement on the construction of the bridge was signed in 2013 (1900 meters on the Chinese side, 300 meters on the Russian side). On the Chinese side, the construction was completed in 2016. From the Russian side, real work began only in 2017. At the moment, the bridge is not completed (the date of completion of the work was postponed several times).
The expectations include the increase in throughput from 5.2 million tons of freight per year at the first stage to 20-21 million tons at the second stage of the project.
