The motor-car bridge across Ufa-river near the Stone Crossing has become two times wider. The second bridge’s turn was opened today near the south entrance to the capital RB.

“Construction of the bridge, connecting Ufa with the highway M5, started in 2006. The first turn was launched into operation in 2008. The bridge is very solid and will serve the Republic for many years” – the deputy of the State Council-Kurultay-RB, the director of the bridge construction crew Paul Rabukhin said at the solemn ceremony.

The length of the bridge is 630 meters with two lines, about four meters wide each. The bridge has already started functioning and the first cars have passed it immediately after the solemn opening ceremony.
