In Buryatia, the water level in the river decreased, washing out the railway tracks KXan 36 Daily News

Date: July 19, 2024 Time: 02:16:00

The water level in the Kholodnaya River at this time is 238 centimeters. Due to the fact that the dam collapsed, 100 thousand cubic meters of rock are required to restore the section of the tracks. A thousand cubic meters of raw material have been delivered to the site so far, and sewers have also been delivered. Russian Railways is sending 26 hopper and tipper wagons to deliver rock. Another 109 windlass wagons will be shipped from the Irkutsk region. 69 of them are already in Severobaikalsk, 44 kilometers from the blurred track.

The situation is further complicated by the fact that the water washed away the road. Therefore, now on the site the canvas is being sprayed and restored. 12 dump trucks left the village of Ust-Kut in Irkutsk at 18:00 local time. True, they will not arrive soon: the distance to the damaged section of the tracks is 390 kilometers.

No one was injured as a result of the storm. However, six passenger trains that ended up on the Trans-Siberian were stopped. The trains ran from the Taishet station in the Irkutsk region to Tynda (Amur region). The Buryat government estimates that the delay will be 30 hours.

Some passengers will be delivered by plane. On August 20, a flight from Nizhneangarsk to Tynda is scheduled, on August 21 – from Tynda to Nizhneangarsk.

The consequences of the Kholodnaya River spill in Buryatia are expected to be eliminated by August 26.
