SIMFEROPOL, March 31. /ITAR-TASS/. Kerch port will become a key Black Sea port of Russia, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting of the Russian government in Simferopol on Monday.
According to him, the project for the development of this facility would be worked out. “It (the port) will become a key Black Sea port of Russia,” the Cabinet head said.
As for the bridge across the Kerch Strait, Medvedev said its final variant had not yet been determined. He also stressed that this “transport crossing will be built by all means.”
“Currently it is necessary to analyse all the options - (whether it would be) a combined railway and automobile bridge or separate bridges. All this should be considered and we will make a decision on this matter in the soonest time possible based on the results of the design and survey work,” the prime minister said.
Also, he continued, “it is planned to double the capacity of the Kerch Strait ferry line.” “It will ensure independence of transportation to the Crimean Peninsula,” Medvedev concluded.
