Two new districts of Yakutia connected a new bridge

A new bridge was opened on the Chybyda River, which separates the Vilyuisky and Verkhnevilyuisky regions of Yakutia. The engineering structure is located at the 614th kilometer of the Vilyui highway and has a length of 183 meters. Its completion was scheduled for the end of 2014, and the contractors coped with the task set before them on time.

“In Yakutia, this is our fifth bridge and the widest. When we just started construction, the local population did not believe that we would cope with this task. Residents have been waiting for the bridge for a very long time, which will provide year-round communication with the center of the republic, ”said a representative of the Vilyuyavtodor construction company.

According to the portal ykt.ru, heads of the Verkhnevilyuisky and Vilyuisky districts Vladimir Poschachin and Sergey Vinokurov noted the great significance of the bridge for the residents of the two districts. This is the connection between the villages, the connection with Yakutsk. They reinforced the congratulations of the guests with the national rite of blessing algys, performed the rite of purification and protection. The grand opening itself ended with colorful fireworks.

A capital bridge was attempted to be built on this site from 2003 onwards, but the project was constantly frozen. The only alternative to the construction was a temporary pontoon ferry. According to residents of Verkhnevilyuisk district, now their lives will be much easier.

In total, more than 2014 billion rubles were allocated in 2 for the reconstruction of the Vilyui federal highway and the construction of new facilities.
