E. Borisov: “Taking into account the opinions of the Yakuts, we will fight for the bridge over the Lena”

The acting head of Yakutia, Yegor Borisov, said he would insist on building a highway bridge across the Lena River. This is reported on the website of E. Borisov. Earlier it was reported that the Russian government is considering the possibility of freezing two projects (including the construction of a bridge over Lena) and the transfer of the budget funds planned for them to projects in the Crimea.

"Once again, a difficult stage of work with the government of the Russian Federation awaits us. It is too early to talk about what the final decision will be. But I will insist," the words of E. Borisov are quoted in the message.

Borisov noted that the construction of the bridge is supported by Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov.

The importance of the project, according to E. Borisov, is that the construction of a bridge that will be able to form a single logistics cluster for the whole of Yakutia by combining the railway built before Nizhny Bestyah, federal roads, regional roads, a river port and an international airport.

"Our colleagues propose to redistribute funds to other objects. But we can agree on Taman - several additional ports have appeared in Crimea. And the bridge across the Lena has nothing to do with it. So, taking into account the opinion of the Yakutians, we will fight for the bridge across the Lena," said Ye . Borisov.

The head of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade of the Russian Federation, Alexei Ulyukayev, noted that the bridge over the Lena is in doubt, because of not obvious traffic.
