The Tavrida highway in the Crimea can be built ahead of schedule. Transport Minister Yevgeny Dietrich spoke about the implementation of the Russian megaproject. His words are quoted by TASS.
“I think maybe we can even finish a little earlier with Tavrida. At least there are no contraindications to this, ”the minister said, but did not give an exact date for the completion of work. In addition, Dietrich recalled that the launch of the Sevastopol – Moscow train will take place in late April.
The Tavrida highway construction project involves the construction of a four-lane automobile bridge, but with two-lane exits from it. The highway will connect the Crimean bridge with Sevastopol. The project was planned to be completed at the end of 2020, its cost exceeds 140 billion rubles. In 2017, at the site of the construction of the highway, a burial was found from at least 70 headless bodies. Scientists dated the burial X-XIII centuries.
