Reconstruction of the Liteiny bridge across the Neva River in St Petersburg
The Liteiny bridge across the Neva River in St Petersburg was originally built in 1875-1879.
Under the reconstruction project the following scope of works was done:
- Arch structures were replaced by composite continuous beams with box cross section and curvilinear lower chord
- Existing piers were widened by ice cutting parts
- The carriageway is 10m wider
- On both riversides two tunnel-type junctions were built
- Embankments were widened and equipped with the footpaths
- The moveable turning span was replaced with the opened one
- The architectural historical lattice was built
The length of the bridge after reconstruction is 394.3m. The width of the bridge is 34m. The hydraulic lifting mechanisms are applied.
