Tanara River Bridge

A new bridge over the Tanara River is commissioned in Vilyuiskiy district of Yakutia at the 459th kilometer of the federal “Vilyui” road. The opening of the bridge made it possible to develop the year-round transport communication between Yakutsk and Vilyuiskiy, Verkhnevilyuiskiy, Nyurbinsky, Suntarsky, Mirninsky and Lensky districts.

      The new bridge will replace the pontoon ferries and eliminate boat crossing previously practiced in the region. The bridge crossing has a length of nearly 100 linear meters, a width of 11.5 meters and a height of about 5 meters. In order to install the bridge pillars the builders drilled nearly 20 meters. According to the director of the “AmurMost” contractor company Anatoly Girkalo, the bridge will serve more than one hundred years. The bridge over the Tanara River was the fifth facility crossing water barriers in “Vilyui” put into service, after the bridges over the rivers Botomoya, Tuora-Kyuel, Kenkeme and in the Verkhnemarkovo area in Irkutsk oblast.

      Vilyuysky District is an administrative and municipal district, one of the thirty-four in the Sakha Republic, Russia. It is located in the western central part of the republic and borders with Zhigansky District in the northeast, Kobyaysky District in the east, Gorny District in the south, Verkhnevilyuysky District in the west, and with Olenyoksky District in the northwest. The area of the district is 55,200 square kilometers. Its administrative center is the town of Vilyuysk. The population of Vilyuysk accounts for 40.6% of the district's total population.
