The Podilsko-Voskresenskyi Bridge (Ukrainian: Подільсько-Воскресенський мостовий перехід) or Podilskyi Metro Bridge is a combined auto-rail bridge over the Dnieper River under construction in Kiev, Ukraine.
The two-level and 7 km (4 mi)-long bridge is intended to carry part of the future Podilsko-Voskresenska Line of the Kiev Metro and three lanes of auto traffic in both directions, connecting the central Podil neighborhood to the left-bank parts of the city. The top level of the bridge will be carrying automobile traffic, while the bottom - rail (metro) traffic.
The construction is contracted by the Kiev municipality.
The bridge is located on midway between the existing automobile Moskovskyi Bridge and Parkovyi Pedestrian Bridge.
On November 18, 2011 a crane vessel Zakhariy LK-600 that was used for construction purposes fell in the river and broke apart. The accident destroyed the crane and polluted the Dnieper River's waters with the crane's oil and construction materials. During the accident, two other barges were damaged; the Harbour bridge was only lightly damaged.
As of December 2011, legal issues have been settled with the private owners of the land and the construction process was finally expanded to the Trukhaniv Island.
Construction site as of 2009, pictured from the Rybalskyi Peninsula.
