GORKI, July 08. /ITAR-TASS/. The project to build a bridge across the Kerch Straight from mainland Russia to Crimea will cost 150-200 billion rubles (up to $5.8 billion), Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak said on Tuesday, July 8.
“Figures range: the bridge proper will cost 150 billion to 200 billion rubles,” he said, adding that the construction of access ways to the bridge would incur additional costs. “This includes coastal, transport and railway infrastructure both on the Taman and Kerch Peninsulas,” Kozak said.
