19 km long Crimean Bridge map and tech parameters:
With an iconic Russian ‘Poyehali!’ (‘let’s go’), the Crimean Bridge has been opened 6 months ahead of schedule for auto traffic, and Putin opened it personally and in style, by driving through a Kamaz truck.
The longest bridge in Europe and one of the longest and most complex in the world, Crimean Bridge will carry 14 million people and 13 million tons of cargo per year. The tourism to Crimea is expected to double and triple after the Crimean Bridge launch.
As Putin says in the episode below, exclusively Russian tech and workmanship were used to build the Crimean Bridge. Crimea has been reborn and is now thriving again, despite anti-Russian sanctions.
Simultaneously, a new International Simferopol Airport was built from scratch and opened up. Its name is, fittingly, ‘Volna’ (the Wave). The airport is considered one of the world’s most modern.
