Picturesque Bridge in Moscow

It is located to the west of Moscow, is a part of Krasnopresnensky Avenue and Marshal Zhukov Avenue. It is called after the Zhivopisnaya (Picturesque) street located nearby.

The length is 1,037.5 m.

The breakdown of the bridge arch and cable-stayed system by spans is made according to the scheme: 2×105+409.5+2×105+ 84+82+42 m. The central span is supported by cable stays. The feature of the design solution is that the girder is located at a right angle to the arch and supported by an incline suspension cable system. Replacing the rigid central support with a flexible one in the form of arch pylon creates a new type of span with new properties. The cable stays in such arch pylon are placed not in the traditional vertical plane but in different directions.

The advanced design solutions of this structure include:

  • S-shaped road bed;
  • arch units and cable-stayed girder;
  • box-shaped stringer of the road plate;
  • fan pattern of cable stays and a number of other solutions.

The project was awarded a diploma and silver medal of the exhibition of engineering ideas in Brussels. For project development and implementation, the development team of designers of Mostovik was awarded a prize of Moscow in the nomination of “Architecture”.
