“This is a very hard project for us. I am not sure that we will cope with it. I do not want to run reputational risks. It is unclear what the cost will be because there is no ready project.

The government will choose a contractor to build the 19-kilometer bridge until January; the sum of the deal will amount to 228 billion rubles (over $4.2 billion).Authorities will not appoint the Federal Agency for Special Construction (Spetsstroy) to conduct the works because of troubles that the agency has with its main project, the Vostochny Cosmodrome spaceport, business daily Vedomosti reported earlier in December. This step made Timchenko’s Stroytransgaz and Mostotrest, controlled by Arkady and Boris Rotenberg, the main competitors for the state order.
