OREANDA-NEWS The first concrete is poured into the base of the cableway stations between the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China. The road almost a kilometer in length will be stretched over the Amur River between the Russian city of Blagoveshchensk and the Chinese Heihe.

“Today is a significant day - we are launching the construction of the cable car. This is a very important project for our neighboring cities of Blagoveshchensk and Heihe. The cable car will significantly increase the mutual tourist exchange between Russia and China and will become the hallmark of our cities, ”said the governor of the Amur Region Vasily Orlov.

The head of the region where the cable car will be built, noted his ambitiousness. Nowhere in the world is there a cable car that passes over the river and connects two banks belonging to different states.

About 7 thousand tourists a day are going to be transported by cable car from Russia to China and back.
