The bridge across the Dnieper in Kremenchug

“Ukravtodor” and the Chinese state Corporation China road and bridge corporation signed a Memorandum on cooperation that envisages the construction of a road bypass of the city of Kremenchug with the bridge across the Dnieper. This reports the press center of “Ukravtodor”.

We are talking about the road N-22//E-584 Poltava – Alexandria on a site of detour of the city of Kremenchug with a bridge crossing over the Dnieper river.

The Memorandum was signed by head of “Ukravtodor” Slawomir Novak and Vice-President of state Corporation China road and bridge corporation Du Fay.

It is noted that as of the moment, the bridge across the Dnieper river has two lanes for cars. The bridge was opened 68 years ago and his support was built 145 years ago.

The bridge is two state roads N-08 Boryspil – Kremenchug – Dnipro – Kiev – Mariupol; international M-22 Poltava – Alexandria, which is part of the European corridor E-584 Poltava – Chisinau – Slobozia (Romania) and part of the 9th pan-European transport corridor.

The head of the State Agency of automobile roads of Ukraine Slawomir Nowak explained the need for the construction of the new bridge.

“City Kremenchuk is an important industrial center of the country, which annually generates about 4 percent of the state budget of Ukraine. Transport links across the Dnieper river is now uncomfortable, because the only bridge is in the centre of the city. Daily average through it passes more than 10 thousand transit vehicles, most of them trucks. The construction of a bridge in the suburbs will allow to redirect the transit traffic outside the city, which would relieve the streets that will make trips safer, significantly improve the environmental situation. The new bridge will provide not only a quality connection over the river, but will increase the investment attractiveness of the Dnieper and the emergence of new jobs,” – said Novak.

The design of the bridge shall be provided the opportunity for future arrangement of the line light metro to merge the left and the right part of Kremenchug.
