New Year’s gift: Klitschko on the ATV opened Shulyavsky bridge


The new Shulyavsky bridge is open for traffic. The first on the overpass traveled Vitali Klitschko. The mayor of Kiev dressed in a suit of Santa Claus and got behind the wheel of an ATV, reports Ukrinform.

Recall that yesterday Vitali Klitschko visited the bridge’s strength tests. As promised at the Kyiv City State Administration, the Shuliavsky overpass was still opened until the end of 2019. However, there is an important nuance: so far only a through passage on the overpass is open, which directly connects Getman and Dovzhenko streets. But the congresses and entrances to the bridge are not ready, in addition, for the construction of one of them it is necessary to dismantle the fifth building of the Bolshevik plant. The second phase of repair of the Shuliavsky bridge is promised to be completed by the summer of 2020.

Recall that the collapse of the old Shuliavsky bridge occurred on February 27, 2017. The overpass for reconstruction was closed on March 17, 2019.
