    Recently they’ve finished the construction of the bridge to Russkiy Island and we’ve covered the most interesting facts about it. Let’s see some more pictures of the wonderful object in the Russian Far East.

    In September 2012 the bridge will meet delegates of APEC 2012 summit.

    Total length of the bridge is 1885,53 m



    Bridge approaches represent overpasses with overall length 900m.

    Width of the carriage way – 24 m for 4 traffic lines.

    To erect pillar M6 on Nazimov peninsula there was made a little artificial peninsula where they drilled holes for the piers.


    The maximal depth of reinforced concrete piles bedding on Nazimov peninsula – 77 m. Each pier has 120 piles inside 2 m in diameter.


    One pier is 324 m high, it’s an approximate height of a 90-storey building.


    Freight-passenger elevators lift people on the piers. The lifting capacity of the elevators is 2 tons. Lifting speed 65m/min.
    The builders worked in extreme weather conditions. Wind speed achieved 36 m/sec., the waves were 6 m high, ice thickness reached 70 cm. In winter it was up to -36C cold, in summer +37C hot.


    Solution on such a height was lifted with special cocnrete pumps.

    348m high over the ground, they say it is the highest tower crane in Russia up to now.

    Lifting height – 335 m, boom length – 60m.

    Max. lifting capacity – 50 tons


    Crane operator

    Max. lifting capacity – 16 t, lifting height – 328,7 m, boom length – 40 m.




    Metal stiffening girder consists of 103 panels 12 m long and 26 m wide. Their overall weight is 23000 tons. The stiffening girder length is 1220m.




    High-strength bolts






    Each seam has been checked with ultrasonic devices.




    Cables

    Each cable consists of 13-85 strands. Each strand consists of 7 galvanized wires.


    The cables service life is not less than 100 years.
