Russia has truly been connection building these previous couple of years, figuratively and literally.

Russia has truly been connection building these previous couple of years, figuratively and literally.

The Russia-Sakhalin Bridge, The Sakhalin-Japan bridge, and the dreams of the Bering Strait bridge/tunnel in writing about several projects such as the Crimea Bridge.

I’ve yet to go over the 2 brand new bridges under construction within the Amur River between Russia and Asia, that are now near to completion phases.

The Chinese title for the Amur River, Heilong Jiang, means Ebony Dragon River, and its particular Mongolian title, Khar Moron, means Ebony River. The eastern edge part is finished 4,000 kilometers very long.

Currently, three railway lines cross the entire Russo-Chinese edge. The two railway edge crossings at Zabaikalsk/Manzhouli and Suifenhe/Grodekovo are over a hundred years old, brought into presence because of the initial design of Russia’s Trans Siberian Railway that took a shortcut across Manchuria (the Chinese Eastern Railway). The 3rd railway crossing, near Hunchun/Makhalino, operated between 2000 and 2004, ended up being closed for a couple years, and just recently ended up being partially reopened.
