Construction will begin in late 2015 for the Russian section of the first railway bridge to cross the Amur river and connect the country with China, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev said Thursday.

A Russia-China intergovernmental agreement for construction of the railway bridge was signed in 2008. China expects to finish the construction of its segment of the bridge by the end of 2015.

According to Chinese estimates, the new railway bridge over the Amur River would diminish the distance for shipments through China’s Heilongjiang province to Russia.

Earlier reports suggest that, as of April 2015, China invested around 952 million yuan into the project, with total investment expected to be 2.64 billion yuan ($426 million).
