From May 24, work will be carried out around the clock at the railway border crossing Vadul-Siret-Dornesti (Romania).

Railway border crossing

Such information was made public during an online meeting with the railway carriers of Romania and Moldova, the railway magazine Railway Supply reports.

In the future, it is also planned to transfer the staff of the Dyakovo station to a round-the-clock mode of operation.

Also, one of these days it is planned to determine the schedule for the transfer of wagons to each of the carriers at the Vadul-Siret-Dorneshti crossing. In particular, a representative of one of the Romanian carriers CER Fershped said that his company is ready to receive trains at night. According to him, it will be convenient.

At the same time, as a result of the growth in traffic through the border crossings with Romania at the Vadul Siret station, the issue of a shortage of personnel, including commercial agents, arose. Currently, the staff has been expanded and staff training continues. The option of sending specialists from the Odessa railway to the station is also being considered.

The measures are designed to speed up the processing and transfer of wagons at the Vadul-Siret-Dorneshti crossing, which is currently the leader in terms of wagon idle time. As of May 22, more than 5 000 wagons are coming here, and the estimated waiting time at the border is 39 days. For grain carriers, this value is several times higher.

In addition, a representative of the Moldovan Railways said that the carrier currently lacks locomotives. Therefore, Ukrzaliznytsia plans to transport the wagons to the border stations in Moldova with its own traction rolling stock together with locomotive crews.

Recall that the queues of wagons in the direction of the western border crossings continue to grow. In particular, the most difficult situation has developed at the Vadul-Siret-Dorneshti border crossing.
