The works on concrete pouring of one of the two most powerful piers of the Kerch Bridge have been launched, the project’s information center said on Thursday.
“A total number of the piers there is two. They are being built in the Kerch Strait and are intended to keep navigable arches over the water. The foundation of every such pier is 95 piles of thick-walled steel pipe,” — the press release of “Krymsky Most” company reads.
In February 2016, the project of the Kerch Bridge construction received a positive conclusion from the Directorate-General for State Environmental Review, and then the main construction works started. As it was reported, in mid-April of 2016, the first of 595 piers of the bridge was built.
