Bridge across the Volga River in Kimry

Bridge across the Volga River in Kimry

Tver Region (overhaul)
Design, Detail Design Development
Project period: 2005 – 2007
Client: State Enterprise “Directorate of Territorial Road Fund of Tver Region”


The overhaul included the strengthening of reinforced concrete decks using a cable-stayed system (this method was applied in Russia for the first time).

Main parameters of the bridge:
– Total length of the river crossing with approaches:  904.9 m
– Bridge length: 554.4 m;
– Bridge width: 15+2х.5 m

It was the first project in Russia where light nanoconcrete was applied for carriageway leveling coating.

The bridge was opened for traffic on 26 October 2007.







For the first time in Russia, strengthening of the existing prestressed reinforced concrete box deck was implemented by means of the cable-stayed system (6 pylons and 24 cable stays). To level the carriageway we have utilised light nanoconcrete with bulk weight of 1.6 t/m2 and plastomagnetic balls instead of crushed stone. This has allowed increasing the bridge capacity up to standard values and straightening the carriageway profile.
