VLADIVOSTOK, August 8 (Itar-Tass) — The bridges across the Zolotoi Rog (Golden Horn) Bay and Amur Bay will be opened on August 11, the administration of the Primorsky Territory said on Wednesday, inviting everyone to the opening ceremony.
The press centre of the regional administration told Itar-Tass that after the Zolotoi Rog Bay bridge opening ceremony everyone will have a unique opportunity to walk across the bridge on foot and take a picture. For the city dwellers the bridge across Zolotoi Rog will be open all the weekend, and from August 13 motor traffic will be opened on it.
The cable-stayed bridge across the Zolotoi Rog Bay is one of the facilities that are being built in Vladivostok for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum’s summit. Together with the bridge to the Russky Island, it will become the basis for a new transport system of Vladivostok. Although by its parameters it is smaller than 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 length is 737 metres. The 226-metres high pylons supports hold the roadbed above the water level at a height of 60 metres. The bridge has linked the centre of Vladivostok with the city’s Pervomaisky district. It was earlier planned to commission the bridge on July 2. However, due to heavy rains the builders could not complete all the work on time.
On the same day - August 11, a low-level bridge over the Amur Bay will be commissioned. It is part of the new speed highway Novy Settlement – De-Friz – Sedanka – Patrokl that has been built in Vladivostok within the program of preparations for the APEC Summit-2012. Its total length is about 40 kilometres. The opening of the road will relieve the Khabarovsk-Vladivostok federal highway bypassing the health resort and recreational zones of the Muravyov-Amursky Peninsula.
The Novy Settlement - De-Friz Peninsula - Sedanka – Patrokl Bay highway will link the airport and the city and with the bridges across the Zolotoi Rog Bay and Bosfor Vostochny Strait and will form the basis of the transport infrastructure of the capital of the Primorsky Territory.
