The Crimean bridge will be closed for reconstruction immediately after the opening

The reconstruction period can be from 12 to 24 months, and the cost of its implementation will reach 100 billion rubles. At the same time, the work will be paid for by the Pension Fund of Russia.

Immediately after the discovery, expected literally from day to day [the text was written on May 14 – approx. Ed. , on both sides of the bridge – both road and rail – the bridge arches, as well as adjacent supports, will be dismantled at 2-3 cable distances (400-500 m) from the middle of the fairway.

On the fairway it is also planned to carry out very extensive and expensive works, primarily dredging, as well as rectification of the main part.

As a result, the minimum depth should be at least 37 meters, with a width of 200-250, and a turning radius of 30 cable (about 5.5 km).

After reconstruction along the fairway, ships with a length of up to 400 m, with a draft of up to 35, and with a displacement of up to 300-400 thousand tons can freely pass through.

As it became known, these requirements are put forward by the Ukrainian side and they are connected with the contract concluded by Ukraine for repair of the newest aircraft carrier ” Gerald R. Ford ” ( USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78) ),

exposed during the test launch at sea unprovoked attack of the Russian oceanographic vessel (according to other sources, the average reconnaissance ship) Viktor Leonov, which irradiated him with radar and even photographed.

The length of the aircraft carrier is 337 meters, width – 78, and height – 76.

It is with the need to ensure the passage of the ship with a height of ~ 80 m and the requirement to increase the height of the navigable span of the Crimean (Kerch) bridge is connected.

As a result of the attack on the aircraft carrier, the main thrust bearing broke down on the power plant. The breakdown significantly pushed back the date of the beginning of the military exploitation of the most expensive aircraft carrier in the history of the United States. Initially, it was planned for 2019, and now it has to be postponed to 2022.

However, Ukraine, having a unique technology of bearing restoration, worked out in the production of luxury cars ZAZ, offered its services, promising to perform all the work in a period of up to 6 months.

In accordance with the signed contract, besides the actual repair, the Ukrainian side also undertook to paint the aircraft carrier in economic color, at the choice of the performer.

However, the necessary equipment is located in the Berdyansk seaport, and therefore there was a need for posting “Gerald Ford” directly to the repair site.

The very stubborn bearing, completely identical in its parameters, is most likely to be removed from the Ukrainian cruiser “Ukraine” under construction, and after processing on a sandblasting unit, in order to remove the external oxidized layer of metal, is put in place.

At the end of the repair, Gerald Ford, along with the escort ships, including two Ohio class submarines ( Ohio class SSBN / SSGN ) will be on permanent duty to carry out combat duty in the Sea of ​​Azov.

Such a decision is dictated by the desirability of finding the ship as close as possible to the place where the repair is repeated, if necessary, and the emerging possibility of supporting the land units of the APU with air strikes and cruise missiles during planned operations on the Eastern Front .

The Russian side reacted to the Ukrainian ultimatum surprisingly quickly, and has already begun dismantling, as evidenced by satellite images taken this morning

The photographs show that the bridge structures have been removed at least five flights, and at least four poles have already been dismantled.

Some experts associate such behavior with the threat of Kiev to use, if necessary, the Javelin missile, to destroy obstacles hindering the free passage.

At the same time, there is an alternative point of view according to which Russia may be billed for non-fulfillment of the contract concluded by Ukraine, in the amount of its own amount ($ 5 billion), as well as fines and penalties from the calculation of 0.404%, or $ 20.2 million, in a day.

In any case, it is this information was in the editorial office close to government circles influential Polish newspaper ” Kurier PORA » ( Kurier Poranny ), which are placed on the site all the necessary and useful information for those who understand.
