The head of the Amur Region, Vasily Orlov, asked Vladimir Putin to speed up the construction and repair of bridges in Blagoveshchensk. He asked the president to transfer funding for the construction of a bridge across the Zeya River, envisaged until 2022, this year. In his opinion, this will reduce the construction time by a year.

This was discussed at a meeting on floods and fires in the regions. Earlier, the Ministry of Transport approved the allocation of nine billion rubles for a project to build a new bridge in Blagoveshchensk near the existing one. 

Vladimir Putin instructed Finance Minister Anton Siluanov to move funding to the left. According to Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin, the contractor is ready to spend up to five billion rubles in 2020. He promised to present an action plan for the construction of the new bridge, as well as the repair of the old one, no later than May 1.

On the bridge over the Zeya river in Blagoveshchensk a slab sank the day before. Blagoveshchensk authorities have introduced a local emergency mode due to detected defect. For preparatory and repair work will take about 15 days.
