The bridge connects not only Kirovsky and Oktyabrsky Districts of Novosibirsk, but also two federal highways, and runs a by-pass section of the M-52 Chuya Highway.
Looking at the arch span of the bridge, you can see a giant red bow, one of the main elements of the Novosibirsk coat of arms.
The project of this additional bridge over the Ob River was designed to divert traffic in transit from the city centre. Its construction started back in 2009 and was completed in 2014. Fun fact: it was carried out simultaneously from both sides. The bridge got its name from Bugrinsky Microdistrict.
Its length is over 2,097 m, while the height of the arch from waterline is 15 m. Visually the arch looks like a giant red bow, which is very fitting since the red bow is one of the main elements of the Novosibirsk coat of arms. Bugrinsky Bridge is the largest arch bridge in Russia and the world’s fourth longest bridge in terms of the span.
