Mariupol, Nov 17 — DAN. The temporary bridge across the river Kalmius between the Post- and Gorbaty Bridges in Mariupol has begun to operate at full capacity.

The bridge is now used by passenger and motor traffic.

City mayor Konstatin Ischenko said that Russian EuroTransStroy company specialists had finished the construction of the temporary crossing next to the Post-Bridge which had been blown up by Ukrainian nationalists. 

The temporary bridge will decrease the traffic load on Mariupol districts. The old bridge will be restored within 1.5 to two years.*jk
