Russia to build billion-dollar highway to Crimea: next part of $7.7 billion road-links project

When Russians go on vacation, the two most popular destinations are Crimea and the Krasnodar region. However, getting from one to the other has never been an easy task.

Despite plans existing since 1903, it took until 2018 for a road bridge linking the adjacent destinations. It's Europe's longest at almost 17km. Now, Moscow plans a $1.5 billion (100 billion rubles) highway to dramatically cut journey times. The first section will be 68km long and is slated to cost almost 60 billion rubles ($919 million), with the length of the entire route eventually reaching 119km.
