In July, it will be possible to begin construction of the main Kerch bridgeMarch 26, 2017
For what, as you know, you first need to completely complete the construction of all auxiliary. As Roman Starovoit (head of the Federal Road Agency) reported, with the so-called "tech" bridges everything goes according to a pre-approved schedule. Already at the end of July they will be fully prepared, tested, and commissioned.
We are talking about the second and third bridges designed to move construction equipment. The construction of the supports of the main, navigable span will begin with them. Two dozen supports of the main bridge are fully ready. For them (as well as for future supports), a thousand (900 pieces) of various piles were packed.
To ensure the delivery of construction materials, more than 25 kilometers of access roads had to be laid (including the envelope for the Taman village).For the transportation of buses from the technological site "Kerch" to the bus ring on Tamanskaya Street in the city of Kerch, a temporary access road was also stretched. To simplify cargo handling for construction, a special cargo yard was built near the Portovaya station. Now over 120 wagons are unloaded every day through it.
Work is also going on from the Kuban. Explosives finish cleaning the territory of the future construction from bombs and shells left over from the last war. They are followed by archaeologists investigating displaced soil. The road junction number one is being prepared for expansion. Near it, support for future overpasses is put in full swing, temporary roads are being built.
