Interesting fact

  • The Blagoveshchensk-Heihe bridge is designed as a steel-reinforced concrete extradose bridge. Visually, it is similar to a cable-stayed bridge, but unlike the latter, the ropes of the Estrada bridge provide longitudinal compression of the sections of the superstructure, giving it additional strength in the support zones.
  • Since the construction of the bridge was carried out jointly by Russia and China, in order to avoid discrepancies, joint meetings were held several times a year on the design and construction of the bridge with the participation of builders and designers of the two countries.
