Ice Ports Closed in Chukotka
According to the press service of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, all winter roads and ice crossings in Chukotka are closed: the last winter road Pevek - Aion completed its work this year.
During the time of the operation of the auto winter roads and ice crossings, all planned volumes of fuel and general cargoes have been delivered to the settlements of the region.
This year, Chukotka had four regional automobile winter roads and seven local as well as 38 ice crossings, including through the Anadyr Liman.
“The road connecting the district capital with the Anadyr airport was closed at the end of April. Now, in order to get across the estuary, residents can use the services of licensed organizations for the transport of passengers on hovercraft taxi boats. Also, if there are more than 20 passengers, the Okrug government organizes air transportation by Mi-8 helicopter, ”the press service noted.
Recall that in 2014, the ice crossing over the Anadyr estuary opened for passenger cars 22 in February, for freight transport - 17 in April. This is the latest in the history of the beginning of the work of autowinter. The dates shifted due to abnormally warm weather, which did not allow the ice to form the desired thickness.
