VLADIVOSTOK, June 7 (Itar-Tass) — The builders of the bridge across the Zolotoi Rog (Golden Horn) Bay have began one of the last stages – laying of asphalt on the roadway. The work was started on the trestlework and tunnel parts of the structure. The waterproofing work, installation of lighting poles, barrier railings on the anchoring and main span is also underway, the press service of the Pacific Bridge Construction Company told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The cable-stayed bridge across the Zolotoi Rog Bay is one of the facilities, which are being built for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum’s summit that will be held in Vladivostok this autumn. Along with the bridge to the Russky Island, it will form the basis for a new transport system of Vladivostok. Although this bridge falls short of the parameters of the bridge across the Bosfor Vostochny Strait, after its construction is completed it will be the world’s fifth largest cable-stayed bridge. Its length is nearly 1,400 metres, and the main span’s length is 737 metres. The bridge’s 226-metre pylons support the structure at a height of 60 metres above water surface. The bridge has linked the centre of Vladivostok and the city’s Pervomaisky district. The builders plan to open the bridge for traffic in less than a month - on July 1.
Director of the public road systems department of the Primorsky Territory Andrei Razgonov said at a meeting in Vladivostok on Wednesday that seven road infrastructure facilities of Vladivostok, including the bridge across the Zolotoi Rog Bay, the bridge to the Russky Island, the Novy Settlement – De-Friz - Sedanka - Patrokl road with a low-water bridge, as well as sections of the M60 highway - Airport and Knevichi Airport are to be ready for commissioning by July 1.
