Reconstruction is being carried out around the clock.

The specialists of the municipal economy complex have started work on laying asphalt on the right-bank part of the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Peter Biryukov

“Large-scale repairs of the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge are underway, at present, the reinforcement and concreting of the supporting slab of the roadway has been completed on the second part of the structure. Installation of granite cladding is in progress, waterproofing and temporary asphalt pavement have begun. Another layer of asphalt concrete will be laid immediately before the opening of the traffic, ”he said.

The bridge is being reconstructed around the clock, which made it possible to open the first part of the bridge to traffic ahead of schedule in December last year.

“The volume of work performed at the construction site is simply colossal: in fact, we will completely rebuild the bridge, update all the main structures, concrete base, road surface, restore granite cladding and cast-iron fencing elements. At the same time, the bridge continues to function and at no stage of the work was completely closed and will not be closed, ”stressed Pyotr Biryukov.

The deputy mayor explained that the repair in this format became possible thanks to the unique technologies used by the specialists of the municipal economy complex. The Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge was 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.
