Assembly of span structures of North-Eastern chord overpass is over 90% complete
The assembly of the overpass span metal structures at the North-Eastern chord section between Likhobory station and Altuf’evskoye shosse is almost complete. The engineering structure is being constructed as a part of the final section of the North-Eastern chord designed and engineered by the experts of Mosproekt-3, the company that forms a part of the so named Group of companies.
“The accelerated construction of the North-Eastern chord segment running from Yaroslavskoye shosse to Dmitrovskoye shosse in being carried out in Moscow, the metalwork assembly operation of the main route overpass at the section between Likhobory station of the Moscow Central Circle and Altuf’evskoye shosse is 90% complete,” – said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Development Policy and Construction.
Andrey Bochkarev reminded that the overpass would run for 2.4 km, becoming one of the longest of the North-Eastern Chord. The concreting of the prestressed reinforced concrete span structures from the 1st to the 9th trestle is already complete, as well as the launching of the span structures in other complex sections.
As Anna Merkulova, CEO of The Group of companies Mosproekt-3, previously mentioned, the engineers of the Group of companies had developed the designing and engineering solutions that enabled to arrange the construction works without altering the operation scheme of the existing transport systems.
“The overpass within its entire length runs along the route of the Moscow Central Circle, and half-a-kilometre section runs immediately above the tracks. To avoid the interruption of the train service, our experts provided the creation of the temporary tracks to be used during the period of the construction works,” – Anna Merkulova explained.
The North-Eastern chord is going to run from Businovskaya interchange to Kosinskaya overpass and will connect 26 Moscow districts. The engineers of the Mosproekt-3 Group of companies designed and engineered 2/3 of the entire highway.
