One of the largest districts of Moscow, Nagatinsky Zaton, where more than 130 thousand residents live, is actively developing, said Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin.
The head of the city also inspected the bicycle and pedestrian bridge under construction across the old bed of the Moscow River. Work on the site is scheduled to be completed in November 2024.
“And at the request of residents, we are building a pedestrian bridge, which will just approach the newly opened metro station. It will, of course, be in demand by residents, but it will also be a decoration of the area, in fact, a new business card,” said Sergei Sobyanin.
First Deputy General Director of the contractor company Roads and Bridges JSC Vladimir Volkov reported to the mayor that the work began in February 2023 and is proceeding according to schedule.
According to the press service of the mayor and the Moscow government, the 216-meter long bridge span will be made in the shape of a crescent: the upper beam will rest on vertical masts suspended on tension rods. The central space of the bridge will be used as a public recreation area, where benches will be installed.
In the adjacent territory, 0.8 hectares of lawns will be developed and 145 trees and shrubs will be planted. Thanks to the bridge, the journey of water transport passengers from the pier to the metro and back will be shortened.
