For both bridges, the contract first provides for the construction of two temporary crossings next to them to ensure the continuity of communications during the works. The existing bridges will be demolished and replaced with new structures of higher performance.
As a result of the expansion, the bridges will receive a higher load-bearing class and improve their utility value. The equipment elements of the new constructions, in particular a 3.5 m wide pedestrian and bicycle path, a 1.5 m wide sidewalk and road safety barriers, will improve safety and increase the comfort of road users.
As part of the contract, PORR will also rebuild an approximately 500-meter section of national road no. 11 between the bridges. The upgrade work will include widening existing sidewalks. The adopted solutions will increase the technical, operational and utility parameters of the reconstructed road section.
