The press service of St. Petersburg State Budget Institution reported that Neva navigation is coming to an end.
On the night of November 26, the Troitsky and Birzhevoy bridges will be opened in St. Petersburg. Troitsky bridge will be opened from 01:25 to 04:50, Birzhevoy – from 02.00 to 04.55. Other crossings will remain flat.
“The Sampsonievsky, Grenadiersky, Kantemirovsky bridges are to be opened from 1:30 to 4:30 by prior request in 2 days,” the website of Moscow officials states.
Navigation on the Neva will be officially closed on November 30, but bridges are already being opened only when there are applications from Volgobalt for pilotage. Navigation on the Neva’s branches ended on November 15, but this did not stop some shipowners who continued to ride tourists along rivers and canals.
