OREANDA-NEWS After the commissioning of the railway part of the Crimean bridge between the two neighboring regions, modern interregional electric trains will run.
This was stated by the Chairman of the Committee of the state Council of the Republic of Crimea on sanatorium and resort complex and tourism Alexey Chernyak.
- In addition to ten pairs of passenger trains on the Crimean bridge will run four pairs of trains between the Crimea and Krasnodar region, — said the Crimean parliamentarian. — A large number of passengers will want to travel by commuter trains, especially since these are not the trains that were in Soviet times.
In General, according to Chernyak, by 2025 long-distance trains will annually deliver to the Crimea about four million tourists. But this is not the limit-recall bridge project allows trains to carry up to 14 million passengers a year. From Simferopol, Yevpatoria, Sevastopol and Feodosia trains will go to Moscow, St. Petersburg, Bryansk, Kislovodsk, Yekaterinburg and other cities.
