Ukrzaliznytsia has suspended transit traffic in Ukraine
AO Ukrzaliznytsia (joint-stock company) temporarily limited transit traffic through the territory of Ukraine due to the modernization of infrastructure.
In particular, work is underway to electrify the Kovel – Izov – State Border section, and repair and track works to modernize the Znamenka – Zdolbunov section.
Because of this, the throughput in the direction of Poland decreased to 350 wagons per day – these volumes are not enough to ensure transportation within the stipulated time frame. Therefore, UZ decided to temporarily stop transit railway transportation through the territory of Ukraine.
Upon completion of the work, the transportations will be resumed, and the customers will be informed about it.
Electrification on the Kovel – Izov – State Border section will increase the weight of cargo trains, increase throughput and reduce the delivery time of goods to the countries of the European Union.
