Today, after three weeks of waiting, the passenger transportation will be started at the Salekhard - Labytnangi passage.
After examination of the route for the air-cushioned all-terrain vehicles on the Ob River, the commission decided to open the season traffic by this kind of transport. A test ride was carried out this morning.
Three all-terrain vehicles "Arctic 3D" will start to transport passengers between Salekhard and Labytnangi at 14:00. The vehicle accommodates 25 passengers. The passenger fair will be 75 rubles; the luggage transportation will cost 37 rubles. It is ten times cheaper than the helicopter transport, which is the only safe way from Salekhard to Labytnangi.
The air-cushioned all-terrain vehicles will connect the shores daily from 7 to 23 o'clock strictly according to the schedule.
Moreover, the preparation of the ice route across the Ob River will be stated. The crew of SUE YNAO "Yamalavtodor" has already inspected the route. The first and second traffic lanes have been cleared of hummocks, marking by poles and resurfacing of the ice road have been started, reported the press service of the YNAO government.
