Novoarbatsky Bridge

Walking along Novy Arbat, you will definitely come to the bridge that spans the Moscow River to Kutuzovsky Prospekt. This steel-reinforced concrete beam bridge was built in 1957, for a long time was called Kalininsky, and now it is called Novoarbatsky.

The bridge is located at an angle of 72° to the riverbed, its main span is made of a solid steel-reinforced concrete beam. This is the first experience in the engineering and architectural practice of Moscow at that time — to connect steel spans of the bridge only by welding, without fastening with bolts and rivets.

The bridge stretches 494 meters long and 43 meters wide, has a 34-meter wide roadway and two sidewalks of 4.5 meters each. In addition to the highway and pedestrian zones, a large number of engineering networks pass through the bridge that provide Muscovites with heat, water, energy, gas and communications.

In 1980, the bridge was depicted on a stamp issued by the USSR Post, and on October 4, 1993, tanks stood on the bridge that fired at the White House.

The overhaul of the bridge was carried out in 2003—2004, and the peculiarity of the bridge design required extraordinary technical solutions and the use of innovative technologies.
