To increase cargo flows in Ukrainian ports, it is necessary to develop the port railway infrastructure
To increase cargo flows in Ukrainian ports, it is necessary to develop the port railway infrastructure.
Among the priority projects of this year is the section Chernomorskaya – Beregovaya, Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov said on his Facebook page.
“This week, within the framework of the Big Construction, we began to conclude and electrify the second main track. We plan to complete the 6.5 km work by the end of the year.
It is these railways that carry out transportation for 3 of the 5 largest stevedoring companies in the country – SE MTP “Yuzhny”, LLC “Transinvestservice” and JSC “Odessa Port Plant”.
The existing route is already a limitation for further increasing the volume and speed of cargo transshipment.
According to calculations, the volume of freight traffic at the SE MTP “Yuzhny” and LLC “TIS” until 2023 will amount to at least 135 million tons.
The last time the capacity was increased here 6 years ago. Now the estimated throughput of the Chernomorskaya – Beregovaya section is 55 train pairs per day, and after the renovation it will increase to 60.
In the future, we are considering the possibility of completing the second main track on the section “post 30 km” – Beregovaya station / Khimicheskaya station. Then the throughput capacity of the Chernomorskaya – Beregovaya – Khimicheskaya section will already be 150 pairs of trains per day.
High-quality public services are impossible without a systematic approach to infrastructure development. The ports must develop, and the state must create the necessary conditions for this.
The port “Yuzhny” is of particular importance here as the largest state stevedore. By its example we want to show that the state wants and can be an effective manager”, the minister said.
