During a working trip to Yakutia an offsite meeting was held by the Deputy Head of the Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia. It was dedicated to the implementation of the concession project for the construction of a bridge across the Lena River. The participants went to the site where VIS Group had already begun to fill the foundation of the future technological site #1. The head of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Aisen Nikolaev, the Minister of Transport and Road Facilities of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Vladimir Sivtsev informed Dmitry Demeshin about the project’s technical parameters and the importance of the bridge for the republic’s further development. The Chairman of VIS Group’s Board of Directors Sergei Romashov spoke about the measures required for the deployment of full-scale construction work.

Sand filling of the first technological site with an area of 15 hectares is currently underway, special equipment and machine operators are working. In total, four such sites will be set up to house construction and shift camps, special equipment and material warehouses.

“In order to fulfill the order of the President of Russia and complete the construction of the bridge in 2028, we need to prepare everything necessary – technological sites, temporary roads and a temporary pier – already during the current construction season,” said Sergei Romashov. “This will allow work to begin in the riverbed next year.”

Work schedules, as well as working conditions for personnel who will be involved in large-scale infrastructure construction in the permafrost zone and Arctic climate, were discussed with the Deputy Prosecutor General and the republican leadership.

The Lena Bridge is one of the largest transport concessions in Russia. VIS Group  is the investor and concessionaire, and the grantor is the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). The project will be implemented through co-financing from the federal and republican budgets and private investment.
