RAZVITIE PROPUSKNOI I PROVOZOCHNOI SPOSOBNOSTI ZHELEZNYKH DOROG

In order to handle growing traffic, ensure stable and economical transportation, and improve the service to new industrial regions, during the last five-year plan there have been constructed over 36,000 km of new railroad lines, which is significantly higher than 1966-1970. Under the conditions of growing traffic volumes the role and significance of yards and junctions is continually growing. During the ninth five-year plan nine new classification yards and systems were constructed, the development of 1148 new stations and junctions was realized, including 27 sorting, 51 sectioning, and 1070 intermediate ones. Increase of the throughput and capacity of railroads in the ninth fifth-year plan is ensured as well because of the further electrification of lines, the broadening of the network range serviced by diesel traction, and the introduction of more powerful electric locomotives and diesels. The increase of power and maneuverability of the transport system, and increase of the throughput and capacity of railroads creates important prerequisites for raising the level of operations. Under these conditions railwaymen are invited to achieve increases in the effectiveness of utilization of technology and, on this basis, improve the transport service of the national economy.
