TASS: Car section of Crimean Brigde opens for traffic16 May 2018 | 07:34 | FOCUS News Agency
The first cars to enter the new bridge at 5.30 Moscow time were driven by local residents, including journalists, community leaders and veterans.
Drivers were informed that they are not allowed to make stops throughout the entire journey and the speed of their vehicles should not exceed 90 kmph.
The motorway section was expected to be unveiled in December, but was completed six months ahead of schedule. Russian President Vladimir Putin took part in the opening ceremony on Tuesday, driving the lead vehicle of the construction equipment convoy.
So far, only vehicles with mass not exceeding 3.5 tonnes will be allowed to cross the bridge. Passenger buses, taking tourists to Crimea during the high season, will be exempt from those restrictions, but truck drivers will have to use the ferry line until October.
