Tighina-Basarabeasca-Giurgiulesti railway section is in the process of major renovation
Geological studies have already been completed at the site, and work is currently underway to survey the railway tracks, install markers, replace fasteners and lay new reinforced concrete sleepers. The first works on the section of the railway “Abaklia-Chadir-Lunga” have begun. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to the Moldavian Railway.
To date, 6,406 reinforced concrete sleepers and 10,000 sets of their fastening have been received. Despite the logistical difficulties and the instability of prices for goods, all materials and special equipment are delivered on time, which does not violate the project deadlines, ”says the company from Kazakhstan, which is responsible for the repair of the railway section.
An open tender was organized for the repair of the Tighina-Basarabeasca-Giurgiulesti railway section. In 2020, the EBRD and the EIB recognized the Kazakh company as the winner. According to the contractual terms, the company will restore a section of the railway with a length of 233 km in 4 years. After the completion of the project, it will be possible to remove restrictions on weight and speed. For freight trains, the speed of movement will increase to 90 km/h, and for passenger traffic, the speed of trains may increase to 120 km/h. The total cost of the project is about 113 million euros.
