In Yakutia work began on the organization of ice crossings

In the Republic of Yakutia, work began on the organization of ice road crossings. During the work, the ice is poured with water, thereby making it thicker and stronger. Today only cars can move on ice crossings. But their weight should not exceed three tons. "The work of weight control points on the rivers of Yakutia has been organized. We kindly ask you to comply with the traffic rules, the rules of crossing ice crossings. In case of violation of these rules, administrative measures will be applied. Fines for individuals from three thousand rubles and for legal entities from 200 thousand and above ", - comments Alexander Lee, operator of a mobile post of weight control.

This year, 130 ice crossings are planned to be opened in the Far East. Four of them are currently functioning, all are in Yakutia. Today, a permanent ice cover has already been established on most of the rivers in the region. “In total, it is planned to equip and operate 49 ice crossings and 23 winter roads in Yakutia.

The minimum ice thickness at which cars can drive onto the river is 30 centimeters. And in severe frosts, the rivers in Yakutia freeze meters deep. Only then will the movement along the waterways begin to function in full. According to experts' forecasts, severe frosts will come to Yakutia in the near future. This helps the ice harden quickly. Officially, winter roads will be open to cars from the end of November. Trucks will have a right of way from December.
