According to the Minister, UAH 232 mln were spent on the construction of the new site. This railway track provides transportation of cargoes of SE ICC “Yuzhniy” in the direction of Promyslova, Khimichna and Berehova stations.

The reconstruction was needed because the capacity of the site was lower than the processing capacity of the ports.

“Earlier it was only one track, now there are two. Accordingly, the capacity has increased. In numbers, there used to be 48 pairs of trains a day, now 60. Thus, our ports can export more. This is especially true at the peak of the season,” Kubrakov said.
