MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
More than 110 servicemen of a separate bridge and road commandant battalions of a separate logistics brigade of the Western Military District (ZVO) have begun building bridges from 60 to 72 meters across the Shat and Upa rivers in Venevsky and Dubensky districts of the Tula region. This work is carried out within the framework of special tactical exercises of the logistics units of the RF Armed Forces.
The bridge structures, erected by the specialists of the logistics departments of the ZVO, after carrying out appropriate examinations, will be transferred to the operation of municipal authorities, will connect dozens of settlements and will significantly reduce the distance to social institutions for local residents.
Currently, the logistics units involved in the exercises have made marches to the designated areas of the Tula region, delivered sets of bridges from rolling beams, and also started installing piles for the construction of road and pedestrian bridge crossings.
After the completion of work on these areas, the servicemen of the MTO ZVO brigade will also have to build road bridges across the Mokraya Tabola and Penikovka rivers in the Kimovsky and Belevsky districts, as well as across the stream in the village of Gribovka, Venevsky district.
The decision to assist in the construction of five bridges across water barriers on the territory of the Tula region to improve road communication between the region’s settlements was made by the commander of the Western Military District, Colonel-General Alexander Zhuravlev, in accordance with an appeal by the governor of the Tula region, Alexei Dyumin.
In total, more than 110 servicemen and over 55 units of military and special equipment of the units of the MTO compound of the Western Military District were involved in the exercises.
The Russian Ministry of Defense has been interacting with the Tula Region to update the regional network of bridge structures since 2018. During this time, 14 bridges have already been built in the region.
