A new Federal highway road will go through Kerch, Simferopol and Sevastopol to join these cities with the bridge through the Kerch Strait and further to the mainland of Russia.

Ninety bridges and crossovers as well as seventeen transport junctions will be built at the highway road. Cars will be allowed to read speed of 120 km per hour on this four-lane highway.
