Ferry complexes of the Vanino-Kholmsk crossing are awaiting a large-scale reconstruction

In 2019-2021 years on the Vanino-Kholmsk crossing the large-scale reconstruction of ferry complexes will be carried out. In both settlements modernize the complexes and repair the shore facilities.

As the press service of the government of the Sakhalin region informs, in the Kholmsky sea trading port two lifting-and-transition bridges will completely replace. To ensure uninterrupted transportation during the reconstruction period, as early as October this year, specialists will repair one of the bridges. Work builders will be around the clock in three shifts.

As the story of the chief engineer of the Sakhalin branch of Rosmorport Vladislav Tyan, nothing will change for the passengers during this period - the ferries will continue to run as before. The ship will be transported by Patria. Railway transportation began to be carried out in advance, the number of flights increased, first of all among the cargoes were foodstuffs, which must be delivered before the stop of the ferry crossing.

The ferry complex, built in 1973, needs urgent repair work. In 2019, a full-scale phased reconstruction of its first and second phases will begin. Completion of work will coincide with the commissioning of two new ferries. Now they are being built at the Amur shipbuilding plant in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. The cost of each will be 4,936 billion rubles. Project ferries can take at least 32 rail cars or 27 auto trains on the main deck, 12 auto trucks on the lower deck and about nine passenger cars, as well as 200 passengers: 112 in cabins, 88 on the seats in the cabin.

Rosmorport has developed proposals that will allow the safe and fast operation of the ferry crossing to complete its reconstruction quickly and without disrupting the delivery of important cargo. The repair plan was agreed with the passenger transportation operator, shippers and JSC Russian Railways.
