Chinese consider putting up cash for Lena bridge

Lena bridge:  A group of Chinese companies including  the China Railway Construction Corporation, China Development Bank (CDB), Hua Tsing An Zu  and three other construction companies are considering putting up the money to build a bridge across the river Lena that would give it access to the Trans-Siberian railway.
“We are extremely  interested in the project,” Hua Tsing An Zu Chairman Mr Chzu Chun Yuiwe, said this week. “By combining   global technologies, and Chinese experience,  we could build a bridge in three and a half years.”
The Russian authorities invited tenders for the construction of the bridge last year, but the project was shelved as the economy went into recession and funds were diverted into the development of newly-annexed Crimea.
