On Thursday, 21 May, the Road and Motorway Directorate began construction of two bridges on route I/26 in Rokycanská St., Plzeň

Basic information on the bridge structures:

Length of the bridge – 70.90 m
Length of the bridging – 57.60 m
Span – 3 x 19.10 m
Length of the support structure – 59.90 m
Width of the bridges – 18.66 m + 18.57 m
Height above the ground – 3.50 m
Area of the support structure – 1, 605.30 m2

Contractor: COLAS CZ, a.s.

Final price: CZK 62,292,179.45, excl. VAT
Opening for service: 11/2016

"The existing support structure of the bridges will be demolished, the supports will be modified and the pillars will be constructed", said Jan Kroupa, general director of the Road and Motorway Directorate. 

The construction will be performed in two stages. First, the Prague-bound bridge will be demolished and traffic will be transferred to the other bridge; subsequently, traffic will be transferred to the new bridge and demolition and construction of the Plzeň-bound bridge will proceed.

Part of the work performed in 2015 must be completed to allow the passability of the I/26 route in the winter without any restrictions.

The construction will involve relocations of the utility lines. It is necessary to create a temporary support structure for their temporary passage during the construction; the gas pipeline will be permanently laid on a new separate platform constructed between the bridges.
