A new bridge is planned to connect Krasnodar in Russia with the Republic of Adygea, part of the Russian Federation. The US$105.1 million project would carry two lanes of traffic in either direction. This would be an alternative to the proposed Yablonovsky Bridge, the project for which has not so far progressed beyond initial plans.
Meanwhile, a new bridge has been proposed for Kaliningrad Bay. This project is expected to be worth $615.5 million, with the bridge and its new approach roads measuring around 7.7km in length. The project will be handled by concession firm. Kaliningrad is Russian territory, although it lies sandwiched in between Lithuania and Poland.
