SPAN LAUNCHING IN THE FINAL SECTION OF NORTH-EASTERN CHORD IS COMPLETE
The construction of the final section of North-Eastern chord is 70% complete: the launching of all the spans is done, and the previously used sections of launching noses have been disassembled. North-Eastern chord section from Yaroslavskoye shosse to Dmitrovskoye shosse is being constructed by the engineering solutions of the experts of Mosproekt-3, the company that forms a part of the so named Group of companies.
“The overpass from Selskokhozyaystvennaya ulitsa to Metro station “Botanichesky sad” is scheduled to have been launched into service by the end of the year. On the overpass from the existing North-Eastern section up to Altufyevskoye shosse the operational works are being carried on constructing the trestles, to installing the bridge deck structured system, in the three spans the metalwork assembly operations are being performed”, – Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
The constructors have also completed the span launching over the Moscow Central Circle lines. According to the head of Moscow Complex of Urban Planning Policy and Construction, the experts of GC Mosproekt-3 managed to find a secured solution which enabled to retain the train traffic.
“Above Moscow Central Circle there is a 500 metre section of the overpass. To construct it the engineers provided two methods of the span assembly work – by cranes and by launching, that is why while the construction work the train time-schedule did not change. Moreover, the engineering structure construction was being done in compliance with the safety regulations: the trains from the first and the second tracks were transferred into the temporary ones, while the third track carried on functioning on a regular basis,” – Anna Merkulova, CEO of The Group of companies Mosproekt-3.
As a reminder, the team of The Group of companies Mosproekt-3 designed and engineered approximately 2/3 of the entire North-Eastern chord. The highway is going to connect 26 districts of Moscow, the length of the direct course of North-Eastern chord is going to take 40 km, and taking into account the ramps and the reconstruction of the surrounding road network, it will take approximately 120 km.
