This year, 35 bridges will be repaired in the capital.
In the west of the capital, a major overhaul of the Skolkovo overpass, located at the 53rd kilometer of the Moscow Ring Road, has been completed. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Peter Biryukov… He noted that the repair was necessary due to the violation of waterproofing and expansion joints over the structure’s supports. This made the further operation of the facility unsafe.
“As part of the overhaul, the support parts of the overpass were replaced, instead of prefabricated reinforced concrete cornice blocks, monolithic ones were installed. At the final stage, the replacement of waterproofing and expansion joints of the roadway was carried out, a new asphalt-concrete pavement was installed, ”said Pyotr Biryukov.
During the work, traffic on the overpass was not completely blocked. For the passage, four lanes were kept in each direction.
The head of the municipal economy complex also noted that the condition of all bridge structures in Moscow is strictly controlled.
“Specialists regularly conduct a comprehensive survey of facilities, carry out routine and, if necessary, overhaul. This year alone, 35 bridges will be repaired in the capital, ”added Pyotr Biryukov.
