123rd kilometre labour camp

Labour camp on the Turukhan River. Used in the construction and maintenance of the railway line and an adjacent bridge over the Makovskaya River.

The camp at the 123-kilometre point on the railway line (calculated from Yermakovo) is in a very poor state. Most of its buildings have collapsed or been dismantled by local hunters. The adjacent railway bridge across the Makovskaya River is in relatively good condition; it is one of the largest bridges built by prisoners working on the eastern section of the Dead Road (construction no. 503).

Subordinate to: Ermakovo, Gulag Construction no. 503 (Dead Road)
Mapped: September 2013
