The parts of the international bridge Blagoveshchensk - Heihe dock 31 May. Workers from Russia and China left to finish a few meters to connect the passage through the Amur.

Now construction is going on around the clock, more 550 people are involved in the works. According to the press service of the Ministry of Eastern Development, from the Russian side the length of the bridge will be 540 meters, 13 km of access roads that are being built from scratch will lead to it. The Chinese part of the transition along with the roads is 5,9 km.

At the docking of the international transition will come Deputy Prime Minister - Presidential Plenipotentiary to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev and Head of the Ministry of Eastern and Eastern Development Alexander Kozlov. The full bridge will be ready by the end of the year, with the start of operation of the bridge put off until autumn 2020.

The Blagoveshchensk bridge - Heihe has been built since December 2016, no budget money is spent on it - the transition is erected by a concession agreement. It is assumed that the transfer capacity will be 630 trucks, 164 bus, 68 cars and about 5,5 thousand people per day.

Docking planned to be held in March of this year, but the timing had to move. The authorities of the Amur Region have declared that this is a necessary measure related to the early ice drift and the consequences of last year's flood. On the Chinese side already began to build a checkpoint. 44 million dollars will be invested in the object. The checkpoint will be built on the Russian side of the bridge, however, at first will be temporary.
