Construction of the bridge across The Sozh River was successfully completed. October 31, the bridge was inaugurated by Prime Minister Sergey Rumas, Chairman of the Oblast Executive Committee Gennady Solovey, Assistant to the President of the Republic of Belarus - Inspector for the Gomel Region Yuri Shuleyko and Minister of Transport and Communications Alexey Avramenko.
An object for $ 25 million was built in just a year. Metal structures were chosen, as they are lighter than concrete and will last at least until the end of the century. The total tonnage of metal supplied by PROTOS LLC was 2,728,218 tons. General Director Nikolai Sysa also attended the opening of the bridge.
The bridge is part of the M8 / E95 highway, which connects the borders of Russia and Ukraine.
