At the Bachatsky coal mine (a branch of JSC "MC" Kuzbassrazrezugol ", an enterprise of the raw materials complex of UMMC), as part of the project for the development of the second stage of the enterprise, a bypass railway line was put into operation between the Technological and Semenushkino stations. The coal company allocated more than 480 million rubles for its construction. A new connecting line between the two stations was laid to replace the old one, which hindered the development of mining operations on the eastern side of the northern part of the Bachatsky open-pit mine. Its commissioning allowed the enterprise to more efficiently solve the issues of coal loading. "Construction of a new bypass track allowed to reactivate mining operations on the eastern side of the open pit, today stripping is already underway there for further coal production," comments Vasily, head of the railway transport department of JSC Kuzbassrazrezugol Alboschiy. “In addition, this section connects the stations adjoining the branch - Bachaty and Razrez JSC Russian Railways, thereby ensuring the uninterrupted transfer of cars from one station to another.” The new railway line is also used to ensure the stable functioning of the branch's railway infrastructure - the passage of track repair equipment and locomotives to carry out the necessary repairs or maintenance. The length of the bypass connecting track is more than 14 kilometers. During its construction, 4 turnouts were laid, the compressor room at Semenushkino station was reconstructed, inter-station communication and lighting were installed, pneumatic equipment was installed on the turnouts and the installation of remote control systems for switches and signals was completed.
