The completion of a new bridge linking the Russian mainland with annexed Crimea has been pushed back by one year. The problem is the plans didn’t account for the weight of trains that will cross it.

The Kremlin sees the bridge, which will span the Kerch Strait, as vital to integrating Crimea, which it seized from Ukraine in 2014.

When finished the 19km multi-billion euro road and rail project which President Vladimir Putin hascalled “historic” will be the longest bridge Moscow has ever built.
