As RIA Novosti informs, the longest floating bridge in Russia, connecting the Bolshoi Ussuriysky Island with the suburbs of Khabarovsk, will be opened on Friday.

The 748 meters long and 10 thousand ton weight bridge is built annually to provide the link with the Island, where a village and a border post are located.

More than 150 military people and about 30 units of specific equipment took part in constructing the bridge that consists of 8 specialized ferries fastened together.

The bridge carrying capacity is 500 cars daily. The technical capabilities allow to provide a full-fledged railway service.

The pontoon crossing will operate until October. In winter transportation will be provided by means of an ice road.
