A cable-stayed fixed bridge was built in St. Petersburg in 2018 as part of preparations for the FIFA World Cup. The bridge ensures 24-hour traffic between Vasilievsky Island and the city centre.
Together with the Western High Speed Diameter and Makarov Embankment, it makes part of the shortest transport link between Pulkovo Airport and Gazprom Arena Stadium.
There are two viewing platforms on the bridge, from which visitors can enjoy views of the Gulf of Finland and the city.
Length — 940 m
Central span length — 147 m
Span layout, m: 34.45+47.25+172.8+61.5+60.0+44.9
Lanes — 6
Navigation clearance — 100х16 m
The initial design proposed an egg-shaped 89.5m-high steel pylon. Due to the amendments introduced to the city’s urban planning legislation in 2016, our engineers had to revise the bridge design when its construction was ongoing. They changed the pylon shape and height, stay cables arrangement and the main span system. The pylon now is 44 m high.
