It is reported that "the captain of the Kerch seaport on Monday issued an order restricting navigation in the Kerch-Yenikalya Canal from October 6 on October 11 to October 6 on October 14." The restriction applies to all ships, “except for ships of the Russian Navy, ships and vessels of the FSB and ships participating in the transport operation.”
The restrictions imposed by the captain of the Kerch seaport are connected with the possibility of conducting the second phase of the maritime operation - transportation and lifting of the road arch of the Crimean Bridge to the fairway pillars. The preliminary weather forecast is favorable,says the release of the information center "Crimean Bridge".
The information center noted that "the final decision on the start time of the offshore operation will be made by a special commission taking into account the actual conditions in the Kerch Strait and the confirmed favorable forecast for the 72 hours of the technological cycle."
Recall that the first arch was installed on supports at the end of August. The mass of the road arch (more than five thousand tons) is almost a thousand tons less than the railway one. The design is fully assembled on the Kerch coast and is ready for transportation using a floating support.
