“”The main objective for this year and next year is constructing the bridge across the Kerch Strait. More than 50% of work on this object has already been completed,” he noted.

“The key phases – hoisting the framework arches for both the motorway and railway sections – have been successfully completed. So, there are no doubts that traffic will be launched by the end of 2018, and Crimea and the city of Sevastopol will be tightly connected by a motorway network to our country’s mainland,” Astakhov added. 

He reiterated that “more than 40 km of access roads to the highway bridge are being constructed.”
