Bridge Loan Lowered

Russia has reduced the size of a World Bank credit to reconstruct road bridges to $192 million from $350 million, the official newspaper Rossiiskaya Gazeta said Tuesday.

An order, signed by Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov last Thursday, said federal bridges would get $100 million for reconstruction, Moscow bridges would get $80 million, and some bridges in the Vologda, Leningrad and Tver regions $12 million.
