Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province has planned to open a new transport line linking the province with Birobidzhan, capital of Russia's Jewish Autonomous Oblast.

Li Xiaohao, road transport official with the provincial communications and transport bureau, said earlier this week that both passenger and cargo services will be opened on the 410 km route linking Yichun City, Heilongjiang with Birobidzhan.

He said Heilongjiang has 48 road transport routes with Russia, covering Russia cities of Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Chita and Ulan-Ude.

"It is the first transport service line linking Russia's Jewish Autonomous Oblast, which is having an increasing personnel exchanges with Heilongjiang," Li said.

He said that the provincial government has opened cargo transport business to foreign companies on the international routes, and required them to take shares less than 49 percent in operating passenger transport service.
