A 23-kilometer-long railroad linking the two towns was built in record time in southern Moldova from Basarabeasca to Berezino (Ukraine).
The railroad section bypasses the Transdniestrian region in eastern Moldova, noi.md reports, citing bani.md
“At the end of June, I signed a Memorandum of Understanding with my Ukrainian counterpart, Minister of Infrastructure Alexander Kubrakov, on the development of the Basarabeasca-Berezino railway section. After two months of hard work on the construction of 23 km of railroad, the time has come to launch this section, which will be put into circulation from September, initially for the transportation of goods,” the Minister of Infrastructure Andrei Spinu said in a statement.
The Basarabeasca-Berezino railway line has not been used since 1997. However, the restoration of 23-kilometer section was carried out by railway workers in a record short time – a month and a half.
After the restoration of the 22-kilometer stretch of railroad on the territory of Ukraine and 1 kilometer stretch on the territory of Moldova between stations Berezino-Basarabeasca the railroad connection of Belgorod-Dnistrovsk with the ports of Izmail and Reni will be started.
Commissioning of the railway section will allow the Republic of Moldova to export and import goods through the Ukrainian port of Izmail on the Danube. In turn, Ukraine will be able to restore imports from Moldova and the EU.
