Tuchkov Bridge ahead of schedule
According to the specialists of Pilon, the general contractor of the reconstruction, the scope of works is ready at 80 percent. At present, works on the longitudinal high-strength reinforcement on both span structures on the Exchange Bridge’s side (the upstream side) are in progress. They are followed with the replacement of tram rails and the repair of the fence. Opening the bridge for road traffic is planned well ahead of schedule, at the end of year 2017 (the set completion terms under the contract expire only in May, 2018).
Bridge and span structures are supplied by Lenmontag Steelworks within the framework of the subcontract. In addition to some capital spans, Steelworks provides metal components for flexible supports, liners and other parts of the bridge structure.
