On February 23, during an online meeting of representatives of Ukrzaliznytsia and Polish carriers, it was discussed that at the border crossings with Poland there is a complication of the movement of freight trains. Railway Supply magazine writes about this with reference to Rail.Insider.


As the railroad workers explained, significant complications are observed at the Yagodin-Dorohusk border crossing. First of all, this was affected by the suspension of the simplified veterinary control procedure. If earlier specialists checked one wagon from a train, now they inspect every wagon and container. Accordingly, the movement of goods is significantly slowed down. According to one of the representatives of transport-forwarding companies, the processing time for trains with grain at the Dorohusk station has increased several times and reaches 4 days.

According to representatives of the Polish carrier PKP LHS, the complication of cargo transportation due to the work of veterinary inspectors is also observed at the Izov-Grubieszow crossing.

Additional delays in the movement of freight rolling stock may also occur as a result of the planned repairs at the Lyuboml station. In addition, at another border crossing with Poland – Mostyska II – Medica – it is planned to carry out track work. The “windows” at the Medica station will begin on March 12 and will last until April 30 in the “train traffic week – track work week” mode.

In addition, Ukrzaliznytsia recently introduced two additional passenger trains between Ukraine and Poland, so freight trains are not processed at night.
