Chinese companies can take part in the construction of a transport corridor through the Kerch Strait

The Russian Ministry of Transport is going to come to an agreement with Chinese partners on the construction of a transport corridor across the Kerch Strait - from Krasnodar Territory to Crimea. The Kommersant newspaper writes about this with reference to sources close to the department. The construction memorandum may be signed by Vladimir Putin and the Chinese leadership at the end of this month.

It has not yet been determined exactly how the transport highway will look like. The choice is between a road-rail bridge and an underwater tunnel. "The final configuration of the project is still being worked out, but it is quite possible that a Chinese construction company, which has experience in implementing large infrastructure projects, can be involved in a significant part of the work," the interlocutors of the publication say, stressing that payment for construction can be made in Chinese yuan ...

According to the publication, large private and state companies from China can participate in the construction. Also, major Russian companies engaged in infrastructure construction are also seeking to participate in the project.
