To date, about 163 hectares of forest plantations have been cleared in the right-of-way, with a total length of 45 kilometers. At the moment, the development and excavation of soil in the amount of more than 83 thousand cubic meters is being carried out, and the embankment of the subgrade is over 11 thousand cubic meters. These works are carried out in connection with the difficult terrain and work in permafrost conditions. Embankments are erected on the railway track in places of relief depressions, and excavations are made to remove soil at a given elevation.

Also, the servicemen are arranging roadside roads, for the formation of which about 119 thousand cubic meters of rocky soil were used over a length of 19 kilometers. The roadside road is a temporary road laid along the track of the railway under construction.

For reference: The roadbed of the railway is a complex of engineering soil structures that serve as the basis for the superstructure of the track. The subgrade absorbs the load from the rail-sleeper grid, ballast and rolling stock, evenly distributing it on the underlying natural soil.
