KHARAROVSK, April 28 (Itar-Tass) —— The rise of the Anyui River and its tributaries in the Khabarovsk Territory destroyed a bridge across the Bagbasa River and blocked traffic on the Lidoga-Vanino road, a source at the Emergencies Ministry's regional department told Itar-Tass.
According to the road services, the water that rose 1.5 metres washed off 20 metres of the wooden bridge across the Anyui's tributary at the 76th kilometre of the road. The bridge has been built for transport traffic while the main bridge is under construction there.
Road builders and repair specialists began working there, but the full-scale reconstruction work will start only when the water goes down. According to specialists, the bridge reconstruction will take up to three days.
Traffic police warn drivers about the situation. The regional government will hold a special meeting on Saturday evening in connection with the problem.
The construction of the 329-km Lidoga-Vanino road began in 1999. The distance from Khabarovsk to Lidoga is 179 km. The road will ensure a stable transport link between Khabarovsk and the international-importance ports of Vanino and Sovetskaya Gavan and also a link to the Chita-Khabarovsk and Khabarovsk-Vladivostok roads.
