24 Feb '09
Construction of a railroad bridge across the Amur River to connect Evreiskaya Autonomous Region and Chinaís Heilongjiang province is expected to kick off in August, Izvestia reported today, citing Evreiskaya regional officials.

An agreement about the project was reached during Evreiskaya Governor Nikolai Volkovís visit to the provinceís capital city of Harbin, Izvestia said.

As regional officials say, a Russian co-investor in the project is Rubikon. The company expects to start exports of cast iron and iron-ore concentrate to China as soon as the bridge is commissioned in 2012, they specified.
