  • Information about the history of the bridge is available online. Add what is not written anywhere. The bridge was designed back in the beginning of 19 century, but the final decision was taken urgently after shipwreck April 7, 1907 -Some merchant Shitov served transportation from Smolny (former Pal'menbahskaja embankment) to r. Ohta. Steamship "Archangel". "... faced with a small l'dinoj, plyvshej adrift down. When the nose of the steamer on an ice floe, peskov, crack was heard. Steamer has stopped. Old junk screw broke down and the Steamboat banked on its right side. The crowd rushed to the opposite side. Rose crazy crush, screaming and crying. ... Passed 2-3 seconds, the steamer again swung, flipped up the bottom and quickly plunged into the water. ... On the left bank of the backgrounds a lot of people, a wife and mother dying. ... A total of 39 people were killed. Most of the workers. ... Shitov involved criminal liability ... ", «Russian word», April 9, 1907. International competition of 16 projects won the French, Russians and Austrians, they even premium paid. But neither idea was not feasible is expensive and complex. Fairway in this location of the Neva-exactly in the middle. The rest of the Petersburg bridges skip Court either closer to the right or to the left. And then drew attention to the sketch, which was not involved at all in the competition-the St Petersburg Professor Krivoshein and military engineer Apyshkova. They offered to put only two supports-Tower in the Neva and two bearings on the banks, i.e. digging, in keeping with a little navigation freer. Draft indenerov and called-"freedom of navigation". Metal farm both spans were gathered on the shore. Then they loaded on an old barge (rumored to be decommissioned ships after Cusimy), got a ride to the truss barge was submerged and farms were up to their seats, then towing barges for scrap. The draft adopted in 1908, but laid bridge in 1909-HACCP.

  • Before the revolution, he was called Peter the great bridge. Bascule bridge, at night, when lights include it looks stunningly beautiful. Side spans of arched shape, are made from metal on a giant riveted. From both ends of the movable spans are cute as rectangular towers of beacons, they are unwinding mechanisms. The object is executed as efficiently, that the first overhaul took place here only after 60 years after opening, despite huge traffic flow.
