Spanning across the Amur River, the 1.4 mile bridge will link Russia’ far east to China’s northernmost Heilongjiang province.
Scheduled to open in 2022 this first ever railway bridge between the two countries will expand international trade significantly.
With work starting in 2016, the Chinese have completed their half of the bridge, Russia’s governor Rostislav Goldstein stated that the Russian portion of the bridge was due to be completed in the early part of 2021.
The railway and associated infrastructure will stretch for a total of over 12 miles with 4 miles being in China and over 8 miles in Russia.
The new bridge will shorten distribution routes by by over 2000 miles allowing for cheaper, faster deliveries of Coal, Iron Ore and other products from Russia to China.
