The Ministry of Development of the Russian Far East said that the first automobile bridge between Russia and China will be opened soon. The bridge will pass through the Amur River between the cities of Blagoveshchensk and Heihe.
Construction began in 2016 and was completed in December 2019.
The ministry reports that "if there were no the pandemic and the closed borders, the bridge would be put into operation immediately after receiving permission. But because of the situation with coronavirus, the bridge will be opened only after all restrictions have been removed."
