Transportation of a pontoon bridge, special equipment, special trains and additional cars: railway workers help regions affected by floods


From Kapchagay station to Shubarkudyk station, railway workers delivered a unique cargo in a short time - a pontoon-bridge park with a carrying capacity of 20 tons. 12 platforms are used to transport it.

The cargo traveled 2370 km in 48 hours, 4 times exceeding the standard delivery time for cargo through the KTZ network. The structure, which can withstand a load of up to 60 tons, was installed along the Uil River to restore transport links in the Uil region and transport people, animals, humanitarian cargo and equipment.

The Semey branch quickly organized the delivery of a platform loaded with special equipment.
