New metro-bridge to link NN to Bor

9 Nov '07
The Nizhny Novgorod regional authorities plan construction of a metro-bridge over the Volga river linking Nizhny Novgorod to Bor, Deputy Governor Vladimir Ivanov has reported.

Mr. Ivanov says the project falls under the general work program of the traffic system and bridge crossing development, the final draft of which is due in half a year.

The extension of Nizhny Novgorod’s subway network to the neighboring town will allow to ease traffic on the highway bridge and the ferry crossing across the Volga, which stays in operation only during the navigation season.
