Servicemen of engineering units of the combined-arms army of the Western Military District, stationed in the Leningrad Region, have begun dismantling more than 90 pontoons on the Neva River in the center of St. Petersburg.

Today engineers have begun dismantling the pontoon platform near the Peter and Paul Fortress, which on June 25 became the venue for the fireworks in commemoration of the festival of graduates of secondary schools in the city “Alye Parusa”.

Every day, according to the schedule, the military personnel of the Western Military District will dismantle the site and load the river links onto military equipment for their further departure to the places of permanent deployment.

In order to avoid congestion in the city center, columns of engineering equipment will accompany the crews of the military traffic police and road patrol officers.

More than 60 servicemen of engineer-sapper units of the army and about 20 units of military equipment are involved in the implementation of the tasks.

The pontoon-bridge park PMP-M is designed to equip bridge and ferry crossings with a carrying capacity of up to 60 tons. The difference between the modernized park and its predecessors is the availability of devices for equipping crossings during freeze-up and hydrodynamic shields.
