Russia preparing to install the second arch of the Kerch Bridge

In the Kerch Strait, shipping will be restricted during the installation of the second arch for the bridge to the Crimea. Shipping in the bridge construction area will be limited from October 11th to 14th, according to the press service of the Crimean Bridge project.

It was noted that on Wednesday, October 11th, a maritime operation would begin to transport and install the second road arch of the Kerch Bridge.

"Restrictions are connected with the transportation and lifting of the road arch to the fairway supports of the Crimean Bridge," the report said.

The ban doesn’t apply to Russian Navy ships and vessels, federal security agencies, or vessels involved in the bridge construction process.

On August 29th the installation of the first arch on the Kerch Bridge was announced. In Russia, it was called a key development event.

It was reported earlier that Ukraine intends to sue Russia over the construction of the bridge to the Crimea, as Ukrainian ports will suffer significant losses if this facility is completed. The dispute between Ukraine and Russia may result in international arbitration.
