Bridges of Saint Petersburg - Big (Bolshoy) Obukhovsky Bridge

The newest bridge across the Neva River in Saint Petersburg, the Big Obukhovsky Bridge (called also Vantovy - Cable-stayed - Bridge) is the only one bridge in the city, which does not draw its wings at night. Bolshoy Obukhovsky Bridge consists of 2 different parallel 4-lane bridges. The first part of the bridge was finished in 2004. The second part of the bridge was opened in 2007.

This cable-stayed bridge is one of the longest bridges in Russia and is the longest bridge in St.Petersburg. The length of the bridge passage is 2824 meters. The bridge is built in quite difficult for navigation part of Neva River, but with the pylons of 126 meters high, staying wide apart, and the middle span of 30 meters high, the bridge is almost unnoticeable for vessels. The Bolshoy Obukhovsky Bridge is a part of Saint Petersburg Ring Road and the only one way at night during the navigation period to get from one bank of Neva River to another, even that it will take time, due to the location of the bridge. The bridge connects Oktyabrskaya Embankment on the right bank of Neva and Obukhovsky Oborony prospect on the other side.
