Railway line Galich - Soligalich

Project Status: 
Железнодорожная линия Галич — Солигалич

Railway line Galich - Soligalich - section of the Monzenskaya railway. This is the largest departmental railway in Russia, owned by Monzazheltrans LLC (it includes the Monzensky DOK, the Cherepovets Plywood and Furniture Factory and the Soligalichsky Lime Factory).

In the 1960s - 1970s Lengiprotrans developed a project for the Galich - Soligalich line with the aim of transporting minerals from peat mining enterprises to the Kostroma region.

In 1967-1968, geological surveys were carried out and a technical project was drawn up. Subsequently, it was altered several times due to changes in technical specifications and was postponed for several years due to the loss of the need to develop peat deposits. The road was built in the following years.
