The Minister of economic development of Crimea Andrey Melnikov believes that the new railway from the bridge over the Strait of Kerch to Simferopol, in the case of construction, should be fast.

Earlier it was reported that the draft concept of integrated development of Railways in the Crimea, which developed the project team envisages the construction of a new direct railway route in a single transport corridor with the track «Tavrida».

According to preliminary estimates of developers, the cost of the first phase of construction on a site Kerch — Simferopol through Belogorsk length of 215 kilometers is estimated at 35 billion rubles.

«Crimean bridge can not rest on old railroad to diesel traction. For efficient transport corridor highly desirable modern rail service. There are several variants, and one of them is the construction of high — speed single-track section from Kerch to Simferopol. Potentially it can be built by issuing infrastructure bonds,» — said Melnikov RIA Novosti.

The bridge across the Kerch Strait that will link Crimea and Krasnodar Krai, will be the longest in Russia — its length is 19 kilometers. The beginning of the movement of vehicles on the bridge is scheduled for December 2018.
