Serny Bridge, which is being built in St. Petersburg in preparation to the FIFA World Cup 2018, will be given the name of Agustin de Betancourt. This was announced in the decree of the St. Petersburg Administration.
The name was suggested by Alexander Panychev, President of Emperor Alexander I St. Petersburg State Transport University who reminded that in 2018 we celebrate the 260th anniversary of Augustine de Betancourt - an outstanding engineer, architect, scientist and statesman, and the first president of the University.
Betancourt Bridge in St. Petersburg
A cable-stayed fixed bridge was built in St. Petersburg in 2018 as part of preparations for the FIFA World Cup. The bridge ensures 24-hour traffic between Vasilievsky Island and the city centre.
Together with the Western High Speed Diameter and Makarov Embankment, it makes part of the shortest transport link between Pulkovo Airport and Gazprom Arena Stadium.
There are two viewing platforms on the bridge, from which visitors can enjoy views of the Gulf of Finland and the city.
