Technical supervision of road infrastructure projects was the subject of discussion at the press conference “Independent technical supervision on the Great Construction in 2020”, which took place on October 20. The press conference was attended by the Head of the State Agency of Automobile Roads of Ukraine (Ukravtodor), Road Service and iC experts, responsible for the project of technical supervision of the highway construction through the Dnipro river in Zaporizhzhia and the Zaporizhzhia bridge.
Construction of highway through the Dnipro river in Zaporizhzhia is one of the key objects of the program “The Great Construction” and a very important traffic artery of the city. The bridge links right and left banks in Zaporizhzhia through Khortytsiya island.
This year Ukravtodor attracted independent technical supervision consultants, including international companies, for some 30 objects (bridges, tunnels, overpasses) and 1250 km of roads. iC was awarded the contract for services of technical supervision of bridge construction in Zaporizhzhia.
iC successfully implemented 25 bridge and more than 40 road construction projects during the last 15 years and uses its experience and expertise in this sector for provision of technical supervision services.
The supervision team realizes importance of high quality of services for this landmark project aiming to significantly improve traffic situation in Zaporizhzhia. It is a technically major project which in reality consists of four bridges. Two parallel bridges with a navigable span of 260 meters supported by a cable stay structure – five sections of 80 meters bridge. The total height of reinforced concrete pylon is 166 meters. There are also separate frame girder parallel bridges with total length of 340 meters. And additionally, approximately 9 km of highway with 6 interchanges and 8 overpasses. The task of supervision is to control and check the quality and volume of work performed by the contractor. Currently, the iC team on site includes some 20 experts, both international and Ukrainian, and is still expanding.
