St. Petersburg (reconstruction)
Feasibility Study, Design, Detail Design Development
Project period: 2000 – 2009
General Designer: Institute Stroyproekt JSC
Client: Committee for City Improvement and Road Infrastructure of St. Petersburg Administration

Lazarevsky Bridge connects Krestovsky and Petrogradsky Islands on alignment of Pionerskaya and Sportivnaya Streets. The original bridge built in 1949 was used for pedestrians and trams and was of a multi-span beam system with wooden piers on steel piles. The deck of steel sections was paved with wooden boards; the width of the old bridge was 11.3 m.

After reconstruction the bridge has become a state-of-the-art cable-stayed bridge which has a new dynamic and elegant appearance.

Main technical parameters of the bridge after reconstruction:
– span of 115 m with asymmetric arrangement of the pylon on the Krestovsky Island side
– length of the bridge with counterweight: 162.8 m
– width: 22.5 m (4 lanes)
– steel deck with 5 main H-beams and an orthotropic carriageway plate
– width of foot walks: 3 m.

Opening of Lazarevsky Bridge in May 2009 became an important event in the life of St. Petersburg. Owing to its original design, the bridge has quickly become popular with St. Petersburg residents and tourists.  It is quite often used for filming.

The main feature of Lazarevsky Bridge is its distinctive and expressive architectural design. The project was awarded a Silver Diploma of VII St. Petersburg Modulor Design Biennale 2009.
