    I think there was only one country where the government ever allowed a vote for the people to vote on whether to be in the EU of not. England. Netherlands almost did, once.

    Bridge to open today ,for cars, this is another (Yamal LNG plant ) massive Russian project that's ahead of schedule , goes to show such massive projects can be done on-time.
    The bridge across the Kerch Strait, which will connect the Crimean Peninsula and Krasnodar Region is set to open on Tuesday.
    Construction of the bridge, the longest in Russia with a span of 19 kilometers, has been carried out since February 2016, and it is opening for cars more than half a year ahead of schedule.

    Anybody driving across the bridge, please leave a post. Wonder how much a taxi would cost from one side to the other? I love bridges.

    I'd prefer to take the train ,longish drive from Moscow, was told return trip is about 20000ru on petrol.
    Flew down the other week, the new airport looks impressive, massive green wall greets you inside, all in all a good modern efficient airport.

    Whilst no doubt impressive from an engineering perspective without the political scenario would there ever have been a business case for this project, I can not see rail ever being incorporated, rail is another ball game to cars alone, it is not exactly joining up two Russian metropolises e.g.Moscow - STB, Moscow - Kazan etc, Russia does not yet have a dedicated High Speed Rail link despite all of the bluster and promises that all cities would be connected for the World Cup in 2018.

    Isn't there a separate rail road bridge just beside the bridge?

    Normally the provision for rail will be beneath the bridge deck itself #

    That is an option, where I am from we put cars on the bridge and then dig a tunnel for the trains.

    But from pictures for the site it looks like the trains will be on a separate bridge beside the one for cars.

    Good question, but after Uber / Yandex Taxi / what-ever-name these "new style / internet" taxi may have, price on taxi had gone down a lot, two years ago I payed some 4-600 for my standard trip around 18-20 km, today 300-350, but the "tarif" price is 240-260.
