The construction of the second Severomuisk tunnel has begun at BAM
The construction of the second Severomuisk tunnel began on the Baikal-Amur Railway (BAM) in Buryatia. Tunneling planned to begin in 2020 year
The first 100 people have already arrived at the facility. They are creating a shift camp. And before the end of 2019, builders will begin to build a reinforced concrete tunnel lining plant, this was reported on the website of the Severomuisk tunnel-2 company.
The new tunnel will run parallel to the existing one. It will be built from two sides. Now work will begin on the side of the East portal of the existing tunnel, from the next - from the West portal. After the commissioning of the second Severomuisk tunnel, the throughput capacity in this section of the BAM will increase to 100 million tons of cargo per year.
The construction of the second stage of the Severomuisk tunnel on the Baikal-Amur Railway will last пять лет. As expected, the work will be performed by the Sibanthracite group and Vostokugol management company. About readiness to tackle the Severomuisk railway tunnel, co-owner of Sibanthracite and Vostokugol companies Dmitry Bosov said last year. He recently asked Vladimir Putin to provide "Sibanthracite" priority access to BAM and Transsib on 25 years for the transport of 50 million tons of own cargo in exchange for construction at their own expense of the North Tunnel-2 ”.
