Update on Dniepropetrovsk Main station reconstruction. The bridge has been reopened after works involving reconstruction of platform 5 and building new platform 6. New stairs were also added, but without lift. That's because this bridge will be replaced to the new one with new northern entrance:

Why is it that in all railways of the ex-USSR region, railway companies insist
on gateways above the tracks rather than passageways below them ? I ask
that because in most of those stations, there are no lifts at all, and gateways
above tracks require twice as much stairs than passageways below. Sure, it's
great for taking pictures, but when you're loaded with luggage, you can
easily feel the difference... What factors lead to decide for going above rather
than below ?

It's simpler and cheaper to build a bridge than a tunnel?

Natural selection - only those strong enough to climb the stairs and those wise enough to cross the tracks on foot and not get killed are left

In my country there are only 5 underpasses and 4 of them are in the main station. The rest is overpasses or level crossings.

EIB to fund double-track Beskyd rail tunnel
20 MAY, 2014

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is to help fund the expansion of a single-track rail tunnel in Ukraine’s Carpathian Mountains.

A new double-track railway is to be constructed through the existing Beskyd tunnel (not pictured) – a notorious bottleneck along the main rail route connecting Ukraine and central Europe.

The 1.8-kilometre tunnel was identified as a priority project by the European Union to develop international transport corridors.

EIB Vice-President László Baranyay said: “The EIB is sending a strong message by providing a loan to Ukraine that will finance the upgrading of interconnections along a crucial transport corridor that is of the utmost importance for the further deepening of the integration between Ukraine and the European Union.”

EU Ambassador Jan Tombinski said: “The Beskyd tunnel construction is one of the main Eastern Partnership projects in field of transport in Ukraine.

“Until now it was a bottleneck of transport even if over half of the transit of goods between Ukraine and Central and Western Europe pass this tunnel.

“The Beskyd tunnel project is also an excellent example of coordinated efforts of the EU, Ukraine and the international financial institutions in transport cooperation.”
And some information about the tunnel. Location:



Blueprints:



And some progress on tunnel. The constructors are already built 225m of total 1822m:

Latest progress on building new platforms for Dniepropetrovsk Main station, taken by me. Opening of them is still unknown:


DSCN5759 by dimlys46, on Flickr

This platform dates back from USSR's time and like most of station, it had access from pedestrian bridge and subway. But as you can see here, as part of rebuilding this platform, constructors fully eliminate access to subway. Access to platform will be only via bridge:

New platfrom:

Layout works are just begun:

New tracks:

As part of project, UZ (state railways), planned to build new northern entrance for station. But as for now, there is no progress for now:

Ukrzaliznytsia (Ukrainian Railways) received on the June18th, 2014 a new commuter diesel train set: DPКr2 (produced by Ukrainian company KVSZ, Kremenchuk, Poltava region). At the same day a new high-speed train set was received as well.

So far, not so much of technical information is revealed.

A farewell to the daily EuroNight train Berlin - Kiev. This train was cancelled in September 2012 and is greatly missed. Officially UZ did not want to continue close to EUR 50.000 to Deutsche Bahn each month for operating the train in Germany.
The train journey took around 24 hours between the 2 capitals. The wheels were changed in Jagodin at the border between Poland and Ukraine. The train was composed of around 4 direct sleeper cars, and weekly through cars Berlin - Lvov, Berlin - Doneck, Berlin - Simferopol, Berlin - Charkov and Berlin - Odessa.

dimlys1994, that`s one strange choice for sabotage - while closure of this bridge would definitely cripple capacity and and reduce speeds, it won't cut-off Mariupol, which is government stronghold in Donbass.

It claimed that this is from 23rd of June somewhere near Donetsk. Does anybody have any trusted information? Currently it's very hard to distinguish false news about the situations in Ukraine.

I am not sure if the photo is the correct one, but the explosion did took place:

Quote:
On June 22, 14 freight train carriages derailed for unidentified persons had blown up a rail track in Donetsk Region, reads a statement made by the state rail transport administration Ukrzaliznytsia.

The agency says that unidentified persons blew up the track on the Ilovaisk - Kuteinykove section at 15:35.

At the moment of explosion a train loaded with cargo was on the line, and 14 carriages derailed.

Current data, the engine gang was unscathed, no cargo lost.

They are finding out circumstances of the incident, all relevant services have been notified.

Yep, it was RZhD train on UZ rails, due to fact that it's an isolated section of 25 kV AC, that continues in Russia, while all other surrounding railways are 3 kV DC.
