Description

Dvortsovy Bridge (built in 1916) is a national heritage site and one of the symbols of St. Petersburg. It connects the city centre with Vasilievsky Island.

In the beginning of XXI century, the bridge needed an urgent major overhaul. The rehabilitation project started in 2012. It included upgrade of the draw span equipment, installation of a new hydraulic system, strengthening of the deck steelworks and replacement of the bridge floor, while the bridge appearance, its height, and outline dimensions were preserved. During construction works, the traffic on the bridge did not stop.
