The project provides for a new railway Pokrovsk – Kurakhovo – Mine “Yuzhnodonbasskaya” – Volnovakha – Mariupol, informs railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to Alexander Kubrakov Facebook page.

To do this, it is necessary to electrify 46.5 km, complete 20 km and reconstruct 18 km of railway tracks. The preliminary cost of the project is UAH 2.6 billion.

The MIU says that due to the tariff policy of freight traffic at Ukrzaliznytsia, the state has the opportunity to update the railway infrastructure with its own resources. On August 18, the government approved the program of the economic development strategy of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions until 2030.

The program provides for two railway infrastructure facilities: – construction and electrification of the second track from Zaporizhya to Mariupol; – construction of a new railway line in the Luhansk region (a feasibility study for this project is already in progress).
