Whether there will be platforms over the Gulf of Finland? There would be from them a beautiful look.

Isn't that new bridge in Vladivostok the longest hanging bridge in the world? At least that's what our media say.

A guy wire is similar to those on a cable-stayed bridge.

I'm just curious - is it now possible to drive all the way from Moscow to Vladivostok on a decent quality paved road? It certainly wasn't in Soviet times...

^ There's still an unpaved section, and I guess the paved part isn't decent everywhere.

I'm too lazy to look up the video's, but the worst part I remember was a gravel road which was being paved at that time. Wasn't there some article some time ago, that the road from Moscow to Vladivostok is fully paved?

Moscow - Vladivostock

My information says the entire route is now paved.
There used to be quite a difficult section from chita via skovorodino to Khabarovsk but that's all history.

I believe there was a ceremony a while ago when the last section was paved. Putin was driving across it in a Lada.
