Siberian frosts and complex "geography": on the participation of the military in the construction of new branches of the BAM

33

Some time ago, the head of state ordered to expand the capacity of the railway network in the east of the country. With the current economic activity, the Transsib is clearly unable to cope with the flows of goods that go along it in both directions.


In this regard, it was decided to pay close attention to the Baikal-Amur Mainline. The Soviet project received a second wind. Today, several additional branches are being created, which will improve logistics and the overall situation with the transportation of goods by rail in the eastern part of the Russian Federation.

It should be noted that the construction of new branches of the BAM (BAM-2) also has a military component. It consists at least in the fact that the servicemen of the Railway Troops are actively involved in the construction.

According to the plans, all the work that is determined by the government plan should be completed in a maximum of 4 years.
One of the most difficult components of this kind of construction is associated not only with more than harsh climatic conditions, but also with complex geography as such. Railway builders will have to lay tracks in the region of the Siberian and Far Eastern rivers, and for this it is necessary to establish temporary ferry crossings. Work is going on even in the truly Siberian frosts. The total length of the branches is over 300 km.

In Soviet times, the construction of the BAM was attended by servicemen of two corps of the railway. They created at least a third of the length of the highway. Currently, at least one and a half thousand railway servicemen are serving on BAM-2, who are actually creating a new transport infrastructure for a remote part of the country, its connection with the European territory of Russia.

The participation of the military in the construction of new branches of the BAM is described in the Military Acceptance program at the Zvezda shopping center:

    Roads are the arteries of the country. Transsib and BAM - there is no need to talk or explain anything about their meaning.

        In principle, you are right. It meant citizens who think with their own heads and do not grab hold of those who think for them.

    I live not far from the piece of iron. Compare the movement along it that was in the days of the USSR and now ... Then there really was a movement. At the crossings, trains could stand for hours, it was not possible to pass. And now, it is surprising when the crossing is closed for more than 5 minutes.
    And the continuous cuts in passenger flights. Literally the day before yesterday a message from Russian Railways, 40 flights were liquidated. Luggage compartments have been eliminated at the stations, most of them are container loading warehouses. Where did the freight traffic come from?

      Freight traffic is evidently only from China, it is likely that they expect to supplement the Transsib and offer China an alternative "silk road" to Europe. I have no other ideas why this is

      I don't quite agree. 44 trains were either canceled or the frequency of running was reduced for a certain period. With the expectation that when demand recovers, everyone will return. Why are you silent that 500 additional trains have been scheduled for the end of December?
      The volume of traffic in comparison with the times of the USSR on the Transsib has grown (see graph).

      The bandwidth is really not enough. And the line load is not measured by the time of standing at the crossing.
      The reason for the liquidation of luggage compartments was the departure of small luggage shippers to transport companies that have their own luggage car park and motor vehicles. Although the trains have a "luggage compartment" service. And what kind of warehouses are you talking about? Small shippers prefer container shipping. A chain of container-carriage-car-recipient is being built. The same is with wagon consignments. The recipient prefers to load and unload the wagon bypassing the warehouse in the cargo yard. Everything is changing. Earlier, the locomotive depots were in 250-300 km, or even more often. And no one laments that with the transition to diesel and electric traction, the locomotive without uncoupling from the train follows from Irkutsk to Khabarovsk, or even further. Only the brigades change. The leverage of the brigade has grown to 350 km, or even more. Train weights are growing. Their length. Freight traffic is growing.

    But in reality - ordinary slave labor, widely practiced in the Union. Because in an amicable way, there should be a comparable salary, working conditions, standardized working hours, social activities, working trade unions (they are generally independent, capable of sending even a minister without consequences), infrastructure ... In general, like in the USA during the construction of interstates ... True, this is expensive, and people will have to be given rights ... It is much easier to drive slaves from all over the country.

      You are clearly not in the subject. Give at least one example of the slave labor of a serviceman at the BAM construction site. I can say that everything is fine with salaries there.

        Suffice it to say that the soldier did not come there of his own free will. He was driven there by order. This is bonded labor, that is, precisely slave labor. And spending the night in a tent is not at all the same as returning to a cozy house where a family is waiting. And, I suspect, it does not work for 8 hours.

          The military was not driven there, they drive cattle. They came there to carry out the order. The railway troops, in principle, fulfill their task: "
          The Railway Troops are responsible for:
          in peacetime - maintaining constant combat and mobilization readiness; organization and implementation of preparatory work for the technical cover and restoration of the most important objects of the railways of the Russian Federation entrusted to the Railway Troops; accumulation, deployment, storage and timely replacement of weapons, military and special equipment, and other material resources for the deployment of troops in wartime; education and training of military personnel and civilian personnel of relevant specialties at transport construction sites, primarily at defense facilities, as well as solving other tasks assigned to the Railway Troops. ”This was the case during the Soviet Union, and it will be so in the future.

          Correct answer. Conscripts are no less slaves. And globally - the conscript army is also slavery. After all, they go there again not of their own free will, but by order. Therefore, I believe that the army should be hired. The mercenary knows exactly what he is signing up for, and he is not dragged by force, he comes himself, because he sees interest. True, it will no longer be possible to force the mercenary to revenge the parade ground with a crowbar, he can answer, he will not be intimidated by his fellowships, and such a valuable frame will not tolerate hazing ... soldier for cat.

            You are clearly not from Russia. Because you don’t know that civilians have been doing cleaning and economic activities on the territory of the military unit for ten years already. So your comments are off topic.

      What do you know about this. So lie or say something? My nephew in uniform was building a two-track bypass road Zhuravka - Millerovo. Earned as a result of a used duster. And he could take a new one. And I would go to new construction, but I have already entered the artillery school in the footsteps of my grandfather.

    Some time ago - this is 2014!
    This is how our beloved ministers carry out the instructions of our beloved President. Not forgetting to receive your monthly salary. This is how the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation controls the implementation of the orders of the President of the Russian Federation. Not forgetting to receive your monthly salary. This is how the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation controls budget expenditures on the instructions of the President of the Russian Federation. Not forgetting to receive your monthly salary. This is how the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation controls the observance of the rule of law on the territory of the Russian Federation. Remembering to receive your monthly salary ...
    Everything in the Russian Federation is as usual: the thunder will not break out - the man will not cross himself! And thunder will break out - a man from the post of minister or governor will be sent to the advisers, it will not sink.
    How not to remember that in the same 2014 in the Russian Federation laid the foundation stone of the railway bridge over the Amur near the village of Nizhneleninskoe in the Jewish Autonomous Region. Maybe in 2022 the trains will go along it ...

      Well, won't they? And it was necessary not only to build a bridge, but also to reconstruct two stations, and the entire Lenin line. What complicated things was the presence of two gauge standards 1520 and 1435 mm at once (the bridge and part of the track development of the Leninsk-2 station).

      By the way, since 2014, a huge amount of work has been completed, dozens of new sidings, second tracks, double-track inserts have been built, large and especially large stations have been reconstructed, the power supply system has been updated, an automatic block has been introduced, the diesel locomotive fleet has been updated, and work continues not only in the Eastern section, but also on the North (Small BAM) - the Tynda-Neryungri section. The volume of work is huge, 7 years have passed, but how much should have been spent on design and development work? Everything is being built and done according to projects, and not according to a pack from Belomor ...

    Mikhail Tynda (Mikhail Bruev), a respected, backward Russian empire, in the late 19th - early 20th centuries, waging wars, surviving the revolution, built railways from Chelyabinsk to Vladivostok. One is called Transsib, Manchurian - the second was called. And at the beginning of the 20th century, waging a war with Germany, Austria-Hungary and Turkey, in how many years did Russia build the Murmansk railway? Do you think that that road at the beginning of the 20th century is much easier than building a bridge over the Amur and reconstructing two stations and the entire Lenin branch in the Russian Federation in the 21st century? Oh, yes, the Transsib and the Murmansk railway in the Russian Empire were designed on a pack of Belomor cigarettes of the Leningrad factory named after V.I. Uritsky.

      Dear, I do not think, but I know. Have you seen how the existing station is being reconstructed? And I saw and participated in the reconstruction, in the construction of new ones, etc. Therefore, I can argue what is long and what is not. By the way, why is Belomor exactly the factories of Uritsky? Is there a more accurate map?

    It is necessary to widen the railway track for a long time. Accordingly, the track of all railway transport. The equipment on the platforms is cramped, bulky items are transported only disassembled, and non-separable bulky items cannot be transported, the capacity of the railroad track does not meet the demands for transportation. Probably the future of Russia will be grateful to the expansion railroad tracks

      Well, the track is so 60 "where is it wider for you?
      In addition to the track, there is such a thing as the size of the approach of buildings, houses and others, too, wake up?
      You will probably be surprised, but on the piece of iron the dimensions in millimeters are all and the track gauge and the width of the wagons, the length of the wagons.
      Everything has been calculated, all the widening of the track is laborious and little real operation.
