Cable Stayed Bridge In Vladivostok

Let’s go and check how the construction of the bridge in Zolotoy Rog Bay in Vladivostok is going.

The bridge is really impressive! It’s all steel and concrete!

You are not allowed to enter the bridge without wearing a hard hat.

It goes up and down once every half an hour.

This is a barge with elements of the construction.

Its name is ‘Stepan’.

Let’s take a walk on the bridge now!

Cable stays are made right on the bridge. This is a cover.

    This is a very impressive design. The construction is very ambitious. However, a serious concern should be the upkeep. Being so close to the salt water and the extreme temperature fluctuations make decay a serious problems. With the amazing amounts of posts we see here regarding abandoned facilities and poorly maintained roads, I can envision seeing a post in the future showing a serious collapse or accident on this bridge.
