Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Marat Khusnullin instructed to reduce the design cost of building a bridge across the Lena in Yakutia. This should be done by the head of the republic, the Ministry of Transport of Russia, Rosavtodor and Glavgosexpertiza.

According to the press service of the Russian government, the time for adjusting the project will be only two weeks. The construction itself should begin in the spring of 2021.

Bridge Concession Agreement through Lena was signed last year by the government of Yakutia and LLC Eighth Concession Company. The total funding for the project will amount to RUB 83 billion. The budget of the republic plans to invest in the project about 54,3 billion rubles... A credit line for 25 billion rubles was opened by Sberbank.

The construction of a bridge across the Lena has been discussed for several years. The bridge will provide about 80% of the population of Yakutia with round-the-clock transport links. At the end of last year, this project entered the Far East development program until 2035 year.
