Road Tunnel at PLP is set in operation.
The construction of road interchange at “Petrolesport” OJSC (member of Global Ports Group) is finished. Road tunnel under the railwy crossing completed the technological integration of all port`s areas. Total construction investment is over 521 580 thousand roubles.
Earlier railway service disturbed the functionning of PLP`s cagro hadling fronts. The traffic of consists by Oktyabrskaya Railway main tracks (Novyi Port – Tsvetochnaya piece of line) crossing the Port`s territory, blocked the road traffic to the main terminals. The setting of new road interchange assured the pauseless road traffic on the PLP territory irrespective to the railway service and improved the efficiency of intraterminal work.
