The Pivnichyi Bridge or Moskovskyi 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]

As part of Ukraine's current decommunization process the bridge is nominated to be renamed.[2]


The bridge is actually a composition of two main bridges: a 816 m (2,677 ft) long and 31.4 m (103 ft) wide across the Dnieper, a 732 m (2,402 ft) long, 29.1 m (95 ft) wide across the Desenka (Desna distributary) and includes a road interchange at Stepana Bandery prospect and Heroyiv Stalingrada prospect.

The major feature of the bridge its pylon 119 m (390 ft) in height. It is located on the Trukhaniv Island and providing support for the main span across Dnieper River.

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.
