It is the 2nd longest metro bridge in Moscow, measuring 458 m in length. It comprises of 2 parallel-running RC cast in-situ bridges in a single-span scheme.
mageba has been involved in this unique project from the early stage of design, and contributed to the construction of the bridges by supplying 24 TENSA-RAIL RSU80 joints (each measuring 6.3 m in length) for installation in the ballast bed of the light rail bridge.
The railway joints were produced by mageba Russia’s production facility in Saint Petersburg.
In order to make the installation of the products easier, ensure durability and due product optimization, specially designed anchors were integrated into the superstructures of the overpasses, which were designed in close cooperation with the engineers of the project.
