Ukrzaliznytsia brought 21 snowblowers on the way

On the 9th of February Ukrainian railway workers removed almost 16 thousand cubic meters of snow from infrastructure facilities. More than 6.6 thousand railroad workers cleared the platforms, switches and tracks from snow. Also, 21 snowblowers worked on the tracks. The most active events were held on the territory of the Southern, Lviv and South-Western railways. This was reported by the railway magazine Railway Supply with reference to the press service of Ukrzaliznytsia.


In general, the railway workers cleared more than 10.3 thousand turnouts, 669 passenger platforms and 911 technological lanes from snow. Despite the bad weather and significant snowfalls, passenger trains continued their journey.

The greatest thickness of the snow cover was observed in Grebіnka – 60 cm, Kyiv – 30 cm, Lvіv and Ternopil – 25 cm. Snow removal at railway infrastructure facilities continues around the clock.

Snowfalls caused a lot of trouble for the electricity supply economy. So, on the Odessa railway, service workers attracted vibropantographs to remove the ice from the power supply devices.
