UrBC, Yekaterinburg, March 6, 2018. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev signed a decree to include Yekaterinburg-Chelyabinsk High-Speed Rail in the national road and rail planning scheme; the paper is now available on the official legal information portal.

According to the scheme, the railroad link will connect Beloyarsky, Aramid, and Sysert in Sverdlovsk Region to Kasli, Sosnovsky, Kunashaksky, and Krasnoarmeysky in Chelyabinsk Region.

The plan means Yekaterinburg-Passazhirskiy Station, Shartash Station, and Chelyabinsk Main Station will all have to get reconstructed. There will also appear new stations along the way: Koltsovo UVSM and Sysert UVSM in Sverdlovsk Region and Snezhinsk UVSM, Suleimanovo UVSM, and Balandino UVSM in Chelyabinsk Region.

The railroad is expected to service 49 pairs of trains a day.
