    What happened to the good old ferries? Building a whole new fleet should cost much less than this!

    And a university for 50,000 students? In the far east? Questionable.

      Take a look at the satellite images of the area, there’s a massive amount of construction going on there right now.

      As for the ferries, you get exponentially more bang for your buck if you can build a bridge. Ferries are expensive, slow, they don’t hold much, there’s really no comparison.

      Oh and 50,000 people is about 2.5 percent of the regional population.

        Yeah, mister know-it-all, I’ve been to Vladivostok. I’ve been to many universities there. It is easy to describe their state, atleast in numbers of students. Under-populated.

        Some 6 billion USD was allocated for all this, in preparation for the APEC summit. A simple bridge would do nicely. But for the purpose of impressing the foreign dignitaries, the bridge cost has increased so many times.

        I’m not talking about the high-speed tri-cat ferries. At that distance thats way too high-end. The nice, good, flat ferries are much better. And cheaper.
