The construction of another bridge on the Danube will begin in 2020 as part of the Belgrade Ring-Road. As City Architect Milutin Folic reveals exclusively for Novosti, the bridge will consist of four structures. Together with access roads, it will be 3,327 meters long and 30 meters wide. The main bridge, connecting the coasts, will be 844 meters long and feature two pylons. The construction should take 36 months.
The bridge should be located 2.5 kilometers downstream from the Pancevo Bridge. On the Banat side, an elevated access route on columns, 1,216 meters long, will be built. It will consist of two parallel structures. On the Karaburma side, the access road will be 1,160 meters long.
According to Folic, the construction of this bridge, two tunnels in the city’s center and the new Sava Bridge, will help unload the capital of Serbia from unnecessary transit traffic.
– The City Development Strategy and the new General Urban Plan mark our orientation towards an ecologically acceptable transport hierarchy. Pedestrians, cyclists and public transport are given a priority over cars – Folic explains.
The completion of the new bridge will also open the possibility of unloading and reconstructing the Pancevo Bridge.
The new bridge is a part of the Outer Road Tangent and will connect the Pancevo Road and the Visnjicka Street
. From Ada Huja, it will connect to the Kralja Aleksandra Blvd and the highway to Nis. Its northern tangent will connect it by a round road to the Pupin Bridge and then further to the Ada Bridge through the Heroja sa Kosara Blvd.Ship “gate”
The pylons will act as “gates” for ships.
– The bridge will not block the waterway, as its width and height will be able to accommodate large vessels – Folic explains.
