Categories / Architecture/Bridges

VOLODARSKY BRIDGE, across the Neva River, joining Ivanovskaya (left bank of Neva River) and Narodnaya streets. Named in memory of the revolutionary V. Volodarsky, killed in 1918 in this area. Built in 1932-36 (engineers G.P. Peredery, V.I. Kryzhanovsky, architects K.M. Dmitriev, A.S. Nikolsky). The part spanning the actual river was covered with two reinforced concrete decks, each 101 metres in the shape of flexible polygonal arches with hard tie-beams and a roadway below. The central navigational opening opens on two wings. The embankment is covered by reinforced concrete with the third span a gerber beam. The piers are made from reinforced concrete with granite facing, the foundation is caisson. During the Great Patriotic War 1941-45, Volodarsky bridge was used as the back up for the Finnish Railway Bridge. The length without the approaches was 332.3 metres, width: 24.3-27.4 metres. In 1988-93, Volodarsky Bridge was replaced with a five span bridge with one opening wing in the middle (engineers N.G. Tikhomirov, A.I. Ketslakh, architect Y.I. Sinitsa). The stationary spans were covered with unbroken hollow beams from above and from below steel plate decking. The piers are on the old foundation. The abutment walls are extremely large, reinforced concrete on a pile foundation. All the piers are faced with granite. On the left embankment the curvilinear tram trestle adjoins the abutment. At the entrance there are granite obelisks, which at their base have staircases. Length: 362.8 metres, width: 36.8 metres.
