A new road bridge is now under construction in the Poltava Region of the Ukraine. The structure will span the Dnieper River and is expected to cost nearly US$407 million.
The project is being carried out at Kremenchuk and is being handled by the Turkish contractor, Dogus Insaat Ve Ticaret. The work is being carried out over a 3km distance, which includes the cable-stayed bridge itself, as well as the approach roads and intersections.
Once the work is complete, the existing Kryukovskiy Bridge will be reconfigured so that it handles rail traffic only. The bridge construction project is being managed by Ukraine’s road authority, Ukratodor.
