MOSCOW, January 24. /TASS/. The Crimean Bridge will be temporarily restricted to cars on January 25 from 11 p.m. Moscow time, and fully closed on January 26 from 12 a.m. to 12 p.m. Moscow time for repair work, the Russian Transport Ministry said in a statement on its Telegram channel on Tuesday.
"Restrictions on the movement of transport will be imposed on the motor road approaches to the Crimean bridge at 11 p.m. on January 25, with the road part of the bridge to be fully closed from 12 a.m. on January 26 to 12 p.m. (Moscow time) for repair and recovery activities," the statement reads.
A truck exploded on the Crimean Bridge on October 8, 2022, causing several fuel tanks of a train to catch fire. Two spans of the bridge’s roadway toward the peninsula collapsed. On December 5, 2022, motor vehicle traffic on the right part of the bridge’s highway section was resumed. Repair activities are currently underway to reconstruct the left side of the bridge’s highway section.
