In Yakutia named the exact amount of the construction of the Lensky bridge

The authorities of Yakutia refute information about the cost of a bridge across the Lena River in the amount of 120 billion rubles. They declare that at the initial stage of construction budget funds will not be needed at all.

According to the press service of the republican government, the capital grant will amount to 54,3 billion rubles, the cost of the investment payment - 40,9 billion rubles, the operating payment - 25,3 billion rubles. The total is 120 billion rubles, but not all of this money will be allocated by the budget of Yakutia.

Costs at the investment stage of the project are estimated at 83,4 billion rubles. Moreover, private investors will be the first to invest. According to the concession agreement, they should finance the development of design estimates and other expenses in the amount of 29,1 billion rubles.

And only by 2025 the republic will send its part - 6,4 billion rubles. They will come in the form of a capital grant from the Road Fund.
