We wrote about the main part of this bridge completing back in May of 2018:The Russian Empire and the Soviet Union both considered creating a bridge to Crimea but failed. And now the longest bridge in Europe, created by Russia, will be open not only to cars and small automobiles but full sized trains.Incredible accomplishment.Transcript Below:
Pile #254 of the railway section of the Crimean Bridge was the last one to install. At the altitude of a 12-story building, or 108 feet above sea level, the construction workers have begun to fill the structure with concrete.
There's a floating concrete plant next to the pile. By use of this complicated method, the team has already installed almost 600 piles of the Crimean Bridge. Half of them belong to the railway section.
Leonid Ryzhenkin, Deputy General Director for Infrastructure Projects at Stroygazmontazh: "The team has completed the construction of the railway bridge piles ahead of schedule. These piles are quite massive."
