Azerbaijan-Iran Railway Bridge to Be Ready by Yearend

Construction of a railway bridge across the Astarachay River near the Iran-Azerbaijan border and as part of the so-called International North-South Transport Corridor will be completed by December, head of Azerbaijan Railways, Javid Gurbanov, told reporters in Baku on November 23.
Gurbanov said the 8.3 kilometer section of the railway from the Astara Station to the bridge at the border with Iran is ready and has been tested, Trend News Agency reported.
The railway bridge across the Astarachay River is a strategically important facility that will link railways of Azerbaijan and Iran and will be a part of the Astara (Azerbaijan)-Astara (Iran) section of the INSTC project.
The corridor is meant to connect Northern Europe with Southeast Asia. It will serve as a link for connecting the railways of Azerbaijan, Iran and Russia.
At the initial stage, it has been planned to transport 6 million tons of cargo via the INSTC per year and increase the figure to over 10 million tons in the future.
