The bridge in the location becomes a plastic continuation of the dynamic descent from the high bank and expresses in its shape the silhouette of the West Sayan Mountains on the opposite side of the Yenisei River.
The versatile image contains a certain high-tech and, at the same time, a pulsating sign of nature, perceived in unity with the environment. This form integrates the space of living energy, the bridge as it slides over the water surface, transferring you to a unique island landscape.
The two-span bridge is 140.7 meters in length. Its width is 5.6 meters with two footways left and right (1.5 meter each) and a two-way bicycle path (2.6 meters) in the middle.
Although the passage is mostly for pedestrians, cyclists and roller skaters in urgent cases it can be used for technical transport and emergency services.
Architectural and constructional logic of the form corresponds with the force diagram; allocation of loads along the mail tube structure allows achieving bearing capacity of it, strengthening just three basing parts.
The bridge will connect a big residential area with a large natural recreational and public space in the middle of the city – Tatyshev Island. At the present time there is a search for investors.
