The bridge is unable to bear the vehicle load, it is wobbling and shaking, reports rambler.ru news outlet. According to experts, the situation is also exacerbated by the seismological activity in the region. Serious discussions began among experts after the opening of the Crimean Bridge. Certain experts were in favor of it, others were opposed, and ordinary citizens did not remain on the sidelines. Recently a Crimean resident took a beautiful snapshot: the Crimean Bridge was hit by double lightning. It seemed like a beautiful and unique natural phenomenon, but became the subject of real debates.
The thing is, a vast number of people are not confident that the Crimean Bridge is safe. A large number of specialists are also of the same opinion. Objectively speaking, the bridge cannot endure the bad weather, strong wind and storms.
Crimean residents have already said that the bridge is literally cracking apart. When talking about the real situation, they say that the bridge cannot bear the weight of all the vehicles crossing it. In published video clips, one can see that at the entry to Kerch on Chkalov street, the Crimean Bridge is literally breaking away from the peninsula. Local residents have been sharing their impressions after traveling across the bridge. According to what they have tweeted, the entire bridge shakes and sways. People are worried that it will not withstand storms and will simply collapse. Most comments expressed a similar sentiment.
It would appear to be a simple matter to connect the Crimean peninsula to Sochiís resorts, but for some reason no such order was given under the Soviet Union. The scientists and government at the time knew that the bridge would break sooner or later. In addition to the negative and destructive effect of weather and seismological activity, the bridge will also be affected by the migration of ice in the strait. Either way, if the Crimean bridge does collapse, it will cause irreparable damage to the ecology and claim dozens of victims.
