Vladimir Putin took part in the solemn ceremony of commissioning the Bugrinsky bridge in Novosibirsk. The President launched a car traffic over the bridge, which became the third in the city.
stressed that this bridge was necessary for the city and its inhabitants, and the building itself is unique - it has the world's largest arch (380 meters). The president, he said, hopes that all work has been done efficiently.
The total length of the bridge, including interchanges, is 5 kilometers. The length of the bridge itself is more than two kilometers. At the same time, its cost amounted to no less than 17 billion rubles. For Novosibirsk, this is, without exaggeration, a strategic object, since the existing bridges have long since exhausted their carrying capacity. In this case, there are already plans to build a fourth bridge.

Workers congratulated Putin on his birthday

During the opening ceremony of the bridge, Putin photographed himself with the workers who built it, and they congratulated the head of state on his last birthday.The editors of uznayvse.ru want to remind you that on October 7, Vladimir Putin turned 62 years old.
Also during the opening ceremony of the bridge, a proposal was made to issue a 10-ruble note with the image of a new bridge, since the note with the Krasnoyarsk Bridge is out of circulation.

Interestingly, the participants of the “Hi, bicycle” movement should have passed the bridge first.

The history of the construction of the Bugrinsky bridge

The first attempt to build a bridge dates back to the 1980s. Even then it was clear that this bridge was necessary for the city, however, the dachas of the tin plant were brought to the construction zone, and therefore the opponents of the bridge construction went on a May Day demonstration with appropriate slogans. After that, the bridge project was revised. Soon the restructuring began, and the state no longer had the capacity and means to build the Bugrinsky bridge, and therefore the project was frozen. However, in 1992 the construction site of the bridge was selected and a feasibility study was adopted.

In the modern history of Russia, the project was tried to be revived twice - in 1997, when construction was soon prevented by a default, and in 2005, when it turned out that it was impossible to build a girder bridge in this place. As a result, in 2010, the construction of a unique arch bridge was started, which was put into operation today.
