The incident occurred near the rural settlement Kholodnoye. 200 meters of the railway track was washed away at the 1102 kilometer of the Kholodnaya – Nizhneangarsk section, ten supports were damaged. Recovery teams, bulldozers, bulldozers are working on the site, which are filling the dam. Traffic on the segment is expected to resume on August 26.

Passenger trains were allowed to bypass. The compositions that follow from east to west go along the connecting branch of Tynda – Bamovskaya and further along the Trans-Siberian Railway. Cars going in the opposite direction continue their way through Taishet, Irkutsk, Petrovsky Zavod and Chita.

The incident with the dam on the Kholodnaya River could have been avoided

Passengers who, for various reasons, urgently need to reach their destination, are transported by plane. People waiting for their trains to depart were accommodated free of charge in hotels.

But the freight trains will have to wait. “BAM will stop for a week! The damage to the country’s economy from idle cargo will amount to billions of rubles. Plus the cost of restoring the railway. And we will restore our regional highway,” said the head of Buryatia, Alexei Tsydenov. .

According to him, the emergency with the dam on the Kholodnaya River could have been avoided. But the inconsistency of the legislation, as if it was aimed at protecting Baikal, did not allow this. The Baikal Protection Law prohibits the construction of hydraulic structures in nearby areas. The dam needed to be strengthened for a long time, but it was not possible to do it. “Over the 24 years of the law on the conservation of Lake Baikal, a certain layer of problems has accumulated that require serious study. More than 50 prohibitions and restrictions on economic and other activities operating on the natural territory of Baikal In general, we have created a very strong system of protection of Baikal, in some places even reinforced concrete, from which local residents are experiencing difficulties, – Dmitry Kobylkin, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Ecology, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection , comment on the situation. Do not do anything, in ten years we will forget about the uniqueness of this water! Today, BAM was washed away, as a result, hours of heroic recovery during the week, this could not be. It can be restored, but a week of downtime for Russian Railways is a loss.”


Long rains caused a flood in the north of the Irkutsk region. The focus of the Ministry of Emergency Situations is the Kazachinsko-Lensky district, where an emergency regime has been declared. The water began to reach the Kirenga, Kunerma and Umbella rivers. The overflowing Kunerma washed out the Ust-Kut-Uoyan highway. Communication along the highway was interrupted, two villages Tarasovo and Nizhnemartynovo were cut off. Kirenga flooded farms in various settlements, including in the center of the district, the village of Kazachinskoye, which suffered the most. In total, the flooding inundated 53 lots and 5 houses in the area. In the affected villages there are stocks of food and medicine. The highway service of the Irkutsk region is working on the restoration of roads: it is filling the canvas and deepening the bypass channels.
