The bridge is planned to be fully opened in August.
On the second half of the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge, the installation of the restored granite cladding began. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for housing and communal services and improvement Peter Biryukov.
“Large-scale work on the overhaul of the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge continues, at present, the installation of the restored granite cladding on the second part of the structure is underway,” said the Deputy Mayor. – Measures are being taken to reinforce and concretize the supporting structure of the roadway, reinforcement of the jaw walls of coastal spans and the dismantling of concrete on the sidewalk has begun.
The bridge is being reconstructed around the clock. This will make it possible to open it already in August, although the completion of the renovation was originally planned for the fourth quarter of this year.
“The volume of work performed at the construction site is simply colossal, in fact, in a year we will completely rebuild the bridge, update all the main structures, concrete base, road surface, restore 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 repairs in this format has become possible thanks to unique technologies used by specialists of the municipal economy complex. The Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge was also repaired earlier.
Bolshoi Kamenny Bridge has not been repaired since its construction in 1938. Reconstruction will increase the bearing capacity of the structure, which will significantly increase its service life.
