Description of the turning point
The cable-stayed single-pylon bridge crosses the Dnieper River, connecting the right and left banks of Kyiv.
The official name of the structure, 135 meters high, 1256 meters long and 41 meters wide, is the South Bridge.
The bridge crossing combines the movement of road transport and the subway. The total length of the crossing is 8.8 km, of which 3 km is occupied by artificial structures: a 1.3 km long bridge across the Dnieper, a 1.5 km right-bank overpass and a multi-tier traffic interchange.
The construction of the bridge before the first commissioning lasted 7 years: automobile traffic on the bridge was opened on December 25, 1990. And 2 years later, on December 30, 1992, the movement of metro trains started.
The total construction cost was about $200 million.
