The new dry-cargo port of Taman, which foundation is estimated at the level of more than 220 bln RUR, may become part of the Kerch port agglomeration, declared Maxim Sokolov, Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation, on April 5.
According to him, the large-scale development of the Kerch port and other ports in the Crimea to be discussed in the future. And M.Sokolov thinks that there should be formed some kind of perspective agglomeration, in which Kerch becomes the major logistics center. At the same time, developing of additional port capacities of the Kerch port is rather problematic, as it is actually located within the city territory.
But on the other side of the Kerch ferry line there are the ports Kavkaz, Temruk and Yeysk. And the Ministry is planning to realize the project of Taman port as one of the largest ports in the Russian Federation.
To date the Kerch ferry line prevents to represent Kerch and Taman in the complex, due to natural barriers. But when the bridge through the strait is built, both ports will be linked in a single agglomeration, summed M.Sokolov.
