The weight of the launched structure was 1,076 tons
Specialists of SK Mostotrest LLC, a member of SK MOST Group of Companies, have completed the last fourth stage of sliding the superstructure of the new overpass in Svobodny. The total weight of the launched structure was 1,076 tons, and the length was 154 meters.
“An important stage of the overpass construction has been completed – the launching of the superstructure. Further, we will proceed to dismantling of a temporary support and building birth, after which we will lower the superstructure onto the piers,” said Viktor Martynenko, General Director of SK Mostotrest LLC.
Once the superstructure is installed onto bridge bearings, the specialists will start damp proofing, installation of expansion joints and barrier railings. The superstructure of the new overpass is made of weather-resistant steel, unlike the old reinforced concrete one. It was installed by the longitudinal launching method. The reconstructed overpass will connect the “Central” and “Zalineiny” parts of the city. After the collapse of the span of the overpass in 2018, residents have to use the bypass roads.
