Ukrzaliznytsia is renovating the Tatariv-Bukovel railway station in Ivano-Frankivsk region. As part of the works, in particular, the station platform was extended to 324 meters.
It is noted that this is the nearest train station to the ski resort of Bukovel.
“Railwaymen have increased the railway platform of the station from 180 to 324 meters. Now it can accept trains consisting of 12 cars, ”the transport company said in a statement.
Previously, the platform was able to accommodate trains up to 6 cars.
Also, modern LED lighting has been installed on the platform, the facade of the bus stop building and the waiting room have been repaired, including the railway ticket offices, which will resume work in the near future. The arrangement of the station territory is underway.
Thanks to the cooperation with the ski resort Bukovel, we managed to repair the Tatariv station in a short time and turn it into a convenient passenger hub between the railway and the resort, and in the future Ukrzaliznytsia plans to overhaul this station. UZ also plans to restore other stations in the Carpathian region, as they are popular among Ukrainians and guests of our country not only in winter but also during summer holidays, “said Oleksandr Pertsovsky, head of passenger services at UZ JSC during a visit to Tatariv station.
The Tatar station and the railway station are an architectural monument, built in 1894, when during the Austro-Hungarian Empire a railway was laid on the mountainous terrain to the then city of Stanislav. In 2021, the new management of Ukrzaliznytsia decided to renovate this station.
At the end of November 2021, the community of the village of Tatariv supported the initiative to rename the railway station Tatariv to Tatariv-Bukovel. The historical name of the Tatars will be preserved on the facade of the building.
Currently, 9 passenger trains run through Tatariv-Bukovel station: №5 / 6 Mariupol-Rakhiv, №15 / 16 Kharkiv-Rakhiv, №55 / 56 and №95 / 96 Kyiv-Rakhiv, №25 / 26 Odesa-Rakhiv, №125 / 126 Mykolaiv-Rakhiv, №57 / 58 Kyiv-Vorokhta, №259 / 260 Sumy-Vorokhta, №130 / 129 Kremenchuk-Vorokhta (with a group of Poltava-Vorokhta trailer cars).
