Sibirsky Extreme 2012 - The Toughest Ride of Them All

More changes coming to Eastern Russia.

Connecting the railway to Hokkaido would require an undersea tunnel or another bridge.
A direct route from Hokkaido to the continent would make it possible for Japan to distribute goods to Europe via the Trans-Siberian Railway or the Baikal-Amur Mainline (BAM) railway.
Russia is currently doing restoration work of the Trans-Siberian Railway and the BAM railway to establish a commercial artery linking Asia and Europe. The new railway is part of that plan.
