The official ceremony dedicated to opening of Friendship Bridge across the Tas-Yuryakh river, connecting the federal highway Vilyui and the license area of the Eastern Blocks SB OGCF, was held on June 6, 2017. The whole complex of construction and installation works was performed by the capital construction department of RNG with the use of its own resources. Such approach enabled to shorten the timeline and to achieve significant cost reduction of the project’s implementation, as well as to guarantee the highest quality of the performed works. In addition to the functional significance of the new bridge, Ivan M. Menshikov, General Director of RNG, also noted its important symbolic meaning, provision of reliable, secure, and long-term liaison between Tas-Yuryakh citizens and RNG. This opinion was supported by Z.Kh. Danilova, Head of Botuobuyinskiy nasleg, as well as invited guests from the local community who, in turn, helped to conduct the necessary ceremonies and rituals in line with Yakut and Evenk traditions.
