Cargo Trains to Bypass Hole

Freight trains will this week start using a bypass that carries a railroad line around a sinkhole formed after an Uralkali potash mine flooded.

The 53-kilometer link is “almost complete,” said administrators for the city of Berezniki. Freight service on the Yaiva-Solikamsk link will start on Dec. 19, followed by passenger trains on Jan. 11, they said.
