Russian Siberian Road to Yakutsk

You might have seen photos of this road earlier. This is the only one road connection Yakutia to the Russian Federation and it’s length is about 1235 km. They also call this road “Lena” because of the river nearby. One can drive this road in winter only, starting spring and because of the rains the road becomes impossible to drive. The tragedy you see on pics below happened in September of 2006, when over 700 cars got stuck on the 10 kilometers segment of this road. People were left out of water, food and warm clothes for several days. This road was still not rebuilt and there’s a possibility the catastrophe will repeat.
