Belarusian Railways has finished modernizing the container terminal of the Brest North railway station, the press service of the Belarusian railway administration told BelTA.
The project is a strategic one from the point of view of developing terminal infrastructure taking into account growing freight traffic. It opens up new prospects for developing freight transportation between the East and the West. The project’s implementation began in 2018. The railway lines were reconfigured as part of the project, the space for reloading and storing containers was expanded, modern cranes were installed and high-performance reach stackers were acquired.
The site can now be used to perform technological operations and sort containers depending on the destination and the customer’s requirements. The container site now occupies nearly 50,000m2. The platform for unloading and loading containers using reach stackers occupies 1,700m2 of the total area.
