Visit to Blagoveshchensk-Heihe bridge

The construction of a motorway bridge linking Russia's Blagoveshchensk to China's Heihe started in 2016 and ended in December 2019 under a concession agreement, granted by the Government of the Amur Region and the People's Government of the Heilongjiang Province, and with a Russian-Chinese company acting as a concession operator.

The bridge crossing is 19.4 kilometres long, including 1,080 metres above the Amur River, 13.4 kilometres of access roads and a 278-metre bridge over the Kanikurganskaya duct in Russia, and 6 kilometres of access roads in China.

The crossing will have a transport capacity of over 300,000 cargo and passenger vehicles per year, 4 million tonnes of cargo, and up to 2 million passengers.

A permanent automobile crossing checkpoint Kani-Kurgan will be created near the bridge. Until then, a temporary checkpoint will process the border crossings.
