The mayor of Kiev Vitali Klitschko on December 28 effectively opened the passage by Sulewski the overpass. Klitschko Santa costume sat on a Quad bike and rode on it.
A live webcast of the opening of the facility was conducted on page of the mayor in Facebook.
Vitali Klitschko had to open the overpass to the New year, as repeatedly promised.
We will remind, on December 27 Shulyavska overpass was tested. The reliability of the overpass was checked using eight heavy 30-ton trucks. At dynamic load eight trucks bring with ballast at the same time at different speeds passed on the bridge. The weight of each truck is 30 tons, so the bridge was under weighing 240 tons. The mayor of Kiev Vitaly Klitschko during these tests together with the builders was standing under the bridge.
Earlier, Klitschko assured that everything is done to the Shulyavska overpass opened until the end of December 2019. For this, he said, from the Netherlands even arrived “megaconcert” – multifunction modular platform, which move in the specified directions, and raise loads up to two tons to a height of 20 meters.
Recall that the Shulyavska overpass collapsed on 27 February 2017. The reconstruction is scheduled to take place in November 2018, but later the deadline was moved to 2019. The ramps for the overpass will continue to build in 2020.
