Yakutia to have an industrial park


The right bank of the Lena River, opposite the city of Yakutsk, may turn into not merely a logistics center but an industrial park. The direct communication between the European part of Russia and Yakutsk is  hampered by the absence of a bridge across the Lena River. However, the settlement of Nizhny Bestyakh on right bank can grow into an industrial satellite town; in fact, a logistics terminal is being built there at the moment. According to experts, the creation of the industrial park is an essential pre-condition for the subsequent construction of the long-awaited bridge.
