Railway and Ferry Service to Crimea to be Opened by Mid April

The news agency ITAR-TASS reported that a direct railway and ferry service to the Crimean peninsula will be opened by mid-April according to the instructions issued by the Russian government at its meeting in Simferopol on March 31.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev instructed the Russian Transport Ministry and the Russian Railways company as well as other interested organizations to open a direct railway and ferry service to the Crimean peninsula in two  weeks time.

At the same time, Sevastopol transport companies have appealed to Russian Deputy transport minister Nikolai Asaul, asking to help build an automobile bridge across the Bay of Sevastopol. The bridge construction across the Bay of Sevastopol might be included in one of Russia’s federal programs. An approximate cost of the bridge construction across the Bay of Sevastopol is 17 million roubles ($484 704).
