Ukrainian Railways continues electrification projects

Ukrzaliznytsia plans to have 1467 km of the railways electrified by 2016, the estimated cost of these works will be about UAH 16 Billion (EUR 1.5 Billion).

The decision on the electrification of a particular site is accepted for two reasons. Whether it is, in the framework of the separation of passenger and freight movement – in order to increase the speed of passenger movement. Or, for the electrification of most freight-intensive sites. A promising direction is the lines to the port of Odessa or to Kryvbas-Donbas, for the transport of raw materials.

In addition, the efforts of railway workers in the coming years will be focused on creation of a second electrified passage to Crimea.
