PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, May 4 (Itar-Tass) — Ferry links across local rivers have opened on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, the press service of the regional government reported on Friday.
After ice melting in the area of Lazo and Tayezhny settlements, ferries have begun functioning across the biggest river of the peninsula – the Kamchatka River. The ferry link connecting Korf and Tilichki in the northeast of Kamchatka has opened. A ferry link used to deliver cargoes to the district centre of Ust-Kamchatsk with the population of more than 4,600 people will open within the next 24 hours.
The period of ice floating when river ferries are stranded varies from ten days to three weeks depending on weather conditions. This year the first river ferry link closed on April 12.
Companies transporting cargoes to the areas depending on navigation periods were informed beforehand about a need to timely deliver cargoes to the points of destination. According to local authorities, during the period when local settlements were cut off from surface transport, they were provided with everything necessary.
