Ukrstal Dnipro steel construction plant supplies arched steel blocks for the construction of the «Wave» pedestrian bridge crossing between Obolonska Embankment and Obolonskyi Island in Kyiv. This is stated in message of Ukrstal Construction company on the Facebook page.
«Construction of the future pearl of Natalka Park – a pedestrian bridge crossing between Obolonska Embankment and Obolonsky Island in Kyiv – continues. Ukrstal Construction is already delivering arched steel blocks to the construction site, which will soon become an integral part of the unique arch,» the company notes.
The blocks are designed and produced using a special technology that has no analogues in Ukraine. The weight of one block ranges from 2 to 7 tons.
Ukrstal Dnipro is the flagship of Ukrainian bridge construction. The Zaporizhzhia Bridge is one of the last major projects.
As GMK Center reported earlier, this year Kyiv plans to complete the construction of pedestrian bridge connecting Obolonskyi Island and Natalka Park. Almost 300 tons of steel, which was produced at the Azovstal steel plant before the Russian invasion, will be used for the construction of the building.
The bridge will consist of five steel waves. It will be exclusively pedestrian. Cyclists will be able to ride on it only when there are no pedestrians on the bridge. The width of the structure is 4 m, the length is 160 m.
The construction of the crossing started back in 2020, but was stopped due to the war. Bridge trusses are already being assembled at enterprises in Dnipro and Zhytomyr.
