Launching of a 380-m arch is planned to be completed in March 2014. Before launching all required steel structures and launching mechanisms as well as temporary supports and service bridges have been prepared. The biggest temporary support is 63 m high. Roller devices have been installed on the temporary supports; the arch steel structures are launched from the opposite direction. The arch structures are launched bottom-up at the angle of 45 degree. The arch weight is 3600 tons. The weight of temporary auxiliary structures is 5.6 thousand tons. Launching will be mostly executed at the air temperature below zero.
