Rostekhnadzor issued a positive conclusion on compliance with the main stage of construction of the international road bridge over the Amur river. The work as a General contractor on the Russian side was performed by the SK Most Group of companies.
The company’s specialists built the Russian half of the bridge over the Amur river, the bridge over the Kanikurganskaya river and the connecting road between them.
Now to open traffic on the bridge, you need to get a commissioning permit from the Ministry of construction of the Russian Federation.
Despite the current situation around the world, the work was completed on time.
“Russian bridge builders-shift workers did not stop for a single day, despite the coronavirus, they passed this test of strength with honor! All work was completed on time. The bridge will be opened and will connect the cities of friendly countries,”– said Eduard Davydov, Deputy General Director for construction of USK Most JSC.
The Blagoveshchensk – Heihe bridge connects Russia and China. The opening of traffic on it will increase cargo transportation and strengthen ties between the Russian and Chinese regions.
The project started in December 2016. The length of the bridge itself over the Amur river is 1080 meters. Each of the sides (Russian and Chinese) built half of it-about 540 meters. The docking of the parts that were built synchronously from both banks took place on may 31, 2019.
The total length of the bridge crossing is almost 20 kilometers, and in addition to the main crossing, it includes 6 kilometers of road in China and 13 kilometers of access roads in Russia, of which 278 meters is the bridge over the Kanikurganskaya river.
