24-hour watch is organized in flood-prone areas of the railway


Railway workers are constantly monitoring flood conditions at stations and stages, as well as on sections of the track located in close proximity to rivers and reservoirs.

24-hour watch by railway transport workers and detours of 673 potentially dangerous places located along the railway have been organized. Additional briefings were conducted with locomotive crews on the rules for operating trains in flood-prone areas.

The railway workers made preparations in advance for the passage of flood waters. We cleared bridges, culverts, and drainage wells of snow, ice, and debris, and opened upland and drainage ditches, chutes, and ditches. Drilling and blasting work was carried out to crush ice on the rivers Uba, Tentek, Selety and others. Together with territorial organizations, 83 dams and reservoirs were inspected.

The KTZ network has 45 flood control trains in full readiness for immediate response to emergency situations. The cars are equipped with all necessary equipment and materials. 2650 cubic meters of rubble stone and over 8 thousand substandard sleepers were harvested.
