The preliminary estimate of the cost of the air bridge across the estuary in Chukotka is 3,8 billion rubles. A quick recoupment of the cable car is not expected, since the initiative was initially socially oriented.

As IAA EastRussia was informed in the press service of the government of Chukotka, the company "Transliman" received the status of a resident of the Arctic zone of Russia with a project for the construction of an air bridge. The cable car will connect Anadyr and Coal mines, which are separated by the Anadyr estuary. The total length of the air bridge will be 7,6 thousand meters. If necessary, it will be extended to the center of the village - for the convenience of residents.

As the Governor of Chukotka Roman Kopin said, a ferry was delivered this year for crossing the water area of ​​the Anadyr estuary, and by 2022 the construction of berths on both sides of the estuary will be completed.

“But there is also a fundamental solution - the construction of an air bridge and a cable car, a mechanism for the DV-concession has been developed. Chukotka is attractive for investors because many projects can be implemented here for the first time, ”he added.

According to the general director of the company Alexander Filippov, the cable car will be all-season, the travel time along the route will take no more than 25-30 minutes.

“Moreover, such transportation will be more profitable for passengers: a one-way ticket will cost approximately 500 rubles. For comparison, a private hovercraft crossing will cost about three thousand rubles. One cabin can accommodate up to 35 people, there will be four of them in total, ”he said.

The air bridge can also carry cargo - up to three tons in one cabin. The Translimana project meets all safety requirements. Six towers with a height of 60 to 110 meters will be built, the tops of which will be connected by four ropes - two in each direction. The cabins will be driven by a diesel engine. At the end of 2021, design and survey work should have been carried out, commissioning is scheduled for 2023-2024, reported EastRussia.

It will take a year to design the air bridge, and to build the facility and related infrastructure will take about two years.

About 60 thousand people cross the estuary annually. After the cable car is put into operation, the traffic along this route may multiply due to the increase in the volume of cargo transportation.
