Lifting of Amurskiy Bridge in Dniepropetrovsk, also know as Stariy (Old) Bridge. Taken in 2011:



It's very rarely you can see this bridge lifted, because there's not s much traffic across River Dnieper nowadays

Opened in 1884 as single-track bridge, 131 years ago. This is the first ever bridge over River Dnieper. It was destroyed during WW2, then restored in 1943 and in 1977 added second track

In what sense? What did you mean?



This is the oldest bridge across the Dnieper River.

We're talking about railway bridges, and for Dniepropetrovsk it is indeed the first bridge to be ever crossed River Dnieper by rail near the city. But somehow you've right, regarding which railway bridge in Ukraine across River Dnieper was first. Struve bridge was built in Kyiv in 1870, but again it was destroyed during WW2 in 1943:



For those who interested it is now replaced with these - Darnytsia railway bridges:

Forgive my ignorance, but how is the railway system within the separatist-controlled part of Ukraine being run at the moment? Is it being run as a separate organisation? And if so, does this organisation work with the Ukrzaliznytsia in any way so that passenger and freight trains can cross the dividing line between the two territories?

Donetsk is home to a large marshalling yard that before the conflict I presume was busy. What are traffic levels there like now? And what are freight traffic levels like generally speaking across the separatist-controlled area?

And finally, how has the conflict affected rail cargo levels across the non-separatist-controlled area of Ukraine, especially within the marshalling yards?

There are no passenger services across the line of conflict, neither from occupied territories to Russia. There are some sporadic operations of freight (basically, shipments of coal from occupied by Russians territories of Lugansk and Donetsk regions to Ukrainian thermic power plants). Russian occupants are trying to establish some passenger services within occupied territories. Railways there are used primary to bring Russian weapons and soldiers to occupied territories.

I can only recall an item of Russian state television about a passenger service running from Donetsk to Lugansk some months ago. Should be some pages back in this topic.

Ukrainian Railways becomes joint stock company
27 Oct 2015







UKRAINE: National railway Ukrzaliznytsia was formally registered as a state-owned joint stock company with an authorised capital of 229·9bn hryvnia on October 21.

This replaces its previous status as an integral part of the Ministry of Transport, and is intended to give the organisation a more commercial outlook.

The first board meeting following the change approved plans to establish subsidiary companies based on 21 departments, including rolling stock repair plants, concrete sleeper factories and IT and research units
