The completion of the renovation was originally scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year.
Large-scale overhaul of the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge will be completed ahead of schedule – in August this year, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Utilities and Improvement Peter Biryukov…
“Bolshoi Kamenny Bridge is one of the key transport routes of the capital, so we have done everything to carry out overhaul of the structure as quickly as possible. The reconstruction of the bridge is carried out around the clock, even in severe frosts, the work did not stop for a minute. This will allow the facility to be completed in August, although the completion of the renovation was originally planned for the fourth quarter of this year, ”said the Deputy Mayor.
He stressed that builders have to do a very large amount of work.
“In fact, in a year we will completely rebuild the bridge, update all the main structures, concrete base, road surface, carry out a large-scale restoration of granite cladding and cast-iron fencing elements,” said Pyotr Biryukov. “At the same time, the bridge continues to function and at no stage of work has it been completely closed and will not be closed.”
Carrying out works in this format became possible thanks to unique technologies that are used by specialists of the municipal economy complex. The Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge was previously repaired in a similar way.
Bolshoi Kamenny Bridge has not been repaired since its construction in 1938. The reconstruction will increase the bearing capacity of the structure, which will significantly increase the service life and increase the overhaul period.
