MOSCOW, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. Engineering troops of Russian Armed Forces have launched construction of an additional ferry line between port Kavkaz in southern Russia’s Krasnodar territorial city of Temryuk and port Krym in the Russian Crimean port city of Kerch, the press service and information department of the Russian Defence Ministry said on Sunday.
“Specialists are measuring the width, depth and speed of current in the Kerch Strait and expected areas of building a ferry line, are surveying the coastal line and are developing driveways and interchange ramps,” the press service noted.
Military divers are involved in ground engineering reconnaissance near the coastal line.
In the near future engineers will start unloading materials for a pontoon bridge which were brought on the Black Sea coast from Vladimir, Rostov-on-Don and Volgograd regions.
A new ferry line is expected to increase sharply transport and freight traffic to the Russian Republic of Crimea in vacational season. The ferry line will operate four ferryboats, each of them can traffic six KAMAZ heavy-duty trucks or more than 20 vehicles with a total of 180 tonnes of cargoes.
Along with a higher throughput capacity the ferry line “will become a good practical training to transfer units and special engineering machinery at larger distances,” the Defence Ministry’s press service and information department said.
