In the Kerch Strait started a new phase of bridge construction to the Crimea. Experts have begun to erect the spans between the supports. Work is underway on a stretch of 6 km.
The hammer blows echo fly on different shores of the Kerch Strait. On the bridge began the most important stage of construction. In professional language this process is called "sliding". In other words, the builders construct the sea bridge spans. One by one the stairs stand on strong pillars right in the water area of the Strait. Like threads, they stretch from the shore to the waterway. Moving with a speed of 25 cm per minute, but accuracy is more important. Each flight should be in its place specified by the designers.
"Launching" is a complex operation, with maximum reliability. Building farther out at sea. The construction is carried out from 8 sites - on land and on sea, is even ahead of schedule. In the waters of the Kerch Strait, between two seas, in this time of year, wind storms are not uncommon. And speed some up to 30 km/hour, and frost. Besides the winter in the Strait of drifting ice, and water can freeze to the bottom. The bridge is erected subject to all the risks. There is a "greenhouse" - a special frame, which is supported by a certain temperature. Here concrete bridge spans. In fact, now formed the basis of the roadway, which next year will begin to asphalt. Each bridge construction, and the construction of the century their works more 30, your site. The builders of the 10th were the first who betoniere spans. Every month the pace and quality of work of each group evaluated by the professionals for almost 40 criteria. When the bridge connects the 2 shores, and the first cars on it will be held in December 2018, experts call the best crew.
