"Where there is a road, there is life" — these words in April 2012, the governor of Yamal Dmitry Kobylkin has started the construction of a bridge across the river Pyakupur. It’s only been 13 months, and the infrastructure facility is almost ready. Car traffic is expected to open in September, before the next freeze-up.
In spring and autumn the residents of the city Tarko-Sale, Pur district center, are on one side, and the entire area and the railway on the other. Pyakupur can drive around the river, but it’s more than a hundred kilometers of trails for technological gas industry, things will change in the fall, and the distance is much reduced, the length of the bridge half a mile.
Carriageway width — 8 meters. In the day about 6,000 drivers tend to get from one coast to the other. The bridge was built in 17 months, it is two times faster than the norm.
