He noted that the reconstruction is going well ahead of schedule. Builders move on to repair the second part of the bridge. It is planned to be completed by the end of 2021, and maybe even earlier.

“Five and more bridges are repaired in the capital every year. Over the past 10 years, more than half of the city’s bridges have been restored to normal technical condition, ”added Pyotr Biryukov.

This is the first major overhaul of the Bolshoy Kamenny Bridge, built back in 1938. Reconstruction will increase the bearing capacity of the structure, which will significantly increase its service life. The bridge will actually be rebuilt again, while it continues to function and will not be completely closed.
