The project life cycle is 25 years, out of which six years were allotted for design and construction and 19 years – for concessionaire operation.

In the past 40 years, the need for a bridge across the Lena has been discussed numerous times at the state level. Due to the lack of year-round land links between the eastern and western parts of Yakutia, 80% of its population has no connection with the mainland for 5-6 months out of a year. The new bridge crossing will reduce budgetary costs for “Northern delivery” and will replace unsafe winter roads and crowded ferries that operate across the river in the summer. Passenger traffic is slated to grow to 8 million people per year after the bridge is commissioned. The cumulative positive effect on Yakutia’s GRP can amount to 3% annually.
