The Moskovskyi ("Moscow") Bridge (Ukrainian: Московський міст) is a structure in Kiev, Ukraine, built in 1976. It is a cable-stayed bridge, designed by the architect A. V. Dobrovolsky and engineer G. B. Fux, with the beam of the main span being held by a cluster of steel ropes which are fixed to a 119 m (390 ft) tall A-pylon.[1]

Overview[edit]

The bridge consists of two spans: a 816 m (2,677 ft) long and 31.4 m (103 ft) wide span across the Dnieper and a 732 m (2,402 ft) long, 29.1 m (95 ft) wide span across the Desyonka, a Dnieper tributary.

It is a key structure on the northern end of the Kiev Smaller Beltway, connecting Petrivka to the densely populated north-eastern residential neighborhoods. From the moment of its construction the bridge was built as a high-speed motorway, which it remains to this day.
