In Rostov-on-don has begun installation of the main span of the bridge Voroshilov, one of the largest in the region. Engineers had to solve a difficult task: to raise to a height of 35 meters design weighing 1,000 tons.
The Central span of the bridge is raised at a speed of approximately 5 m per hour. He will be at a height of 35 meters above the water level. When lifting every degree of inclination of the structure is 150 meters long and weighing 900 tons. I collect this part of the bridge on land. On barges with the help of special equipment it shipped to the installation site. On this stretch of the river don navigation is suspended for more than a day, while the Central span is firmly occupy their place on the supports. Experience in such work is already there. The bridge will consist of two parts, standing next to each other "shoulder to shoulder".
The first part is already ready, it is opened to traffic. New bridge built on the old site, opened in 1965 and became the visiting card of Rostov-on-don. If you believe the version that the border between Europe and Asia runs in the same place on the fairway of the river don, it turns out that the bridge just connects Europe and Asia. The new bridge will be a direct way to the world championship on football of 2018. On the left Bank of the don to build a new stadium, which will go to world Cup matches.
