Since the beginning of may 2019, work is being carried out on the bridge structure 8-9 (132 meters long) on the 280-m km of the Morozovskaya – Volgograd section of the Volga railway bridge over the Don river.
As of now we have carried out installation of the BMP on seven of the nine span bridge structures. After the installation of bridge slabs on all superstructures and the completion of work on the formation of the embankment of the railway approaches, work will begin on the laying of railway tracks.
In parallel with the work on the bridge, the following types of work continue:
