Внешний железнодорожный транспорт порта Усть-Луга

The Ust-Luga Commercial Sea Port is located in the Leningrad Region, in the Luga Bay of the Gulf of Finland of the Baltic Sea. The construction of the port began in the 1990s with the aim of creating powerful, high-performance complexes for transshipment of bulk cargo (coal, mineral fertilizers) to large-tonnage vessels with a carrying capacity of over 30 thousand tons.

Lengiprotrans designed a pre-port station and access railway lines to the new port in Luga Bay.
