The construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) can rightfully be called a significant achievement of transport construction at the end of the 20th century. The specialists of Lengiprotrans were engaged in the design of BAM sections in different periods: Komsomolsk — Sovetskaya Gavan in the 1940s, Chara — Tynda in 1967–1984.

The tasks for the development of BAM have been updated in recent times. So, in 2013, the President and the Government of the Russian Federation adopted an investment project "Modernization of the railway infrastructure of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian railways with the development of carrying and carrying capacities", which included Lengiprotrans designing several objects.

The Tas-Yuryakh — Yuktali section is located in the Tyndinsky district of the Amur region, on the single-track section Chara — Tynda, in the central part of the Baikal-Amur railway. In order to increase the throughput of the section, on the Tas-Yuryakh — Yuktali section of the Far Eastern Railway, for the implementation of non-stop crossing of trains, it was envisaged to build a double-track insert with an abutment in an even direction to the Yuktali station, in an odd direction to the existing Tas-Yuryakh — Yuktali single-track section with a device Posta 2003 km.

Comprehensive engineering surveys were carried out in November-December 2014, and the project documentation for the facility was also fully developed. The conclusion of the Department of Project Expertise and Estimates for the project was received in April 2016. The working documentation for the facility was developed in full in 2016. Designer supervision over the construction was carried out in 2017–2018.
