Bridges

I think that we should have a separate thread about bridges.

Quote:
Danube bridges

Between 1890-1895, after almost 18 centuries since the bridge of Apolodor in Damasc has been built, the Danube's shores were again joined together through the construction of Cernavoda and Borcea bridges.

Bucuresti-Ciulnita-Fetesti track was designed in 1879. Thus it was possible the unification of the capital with the Black Sea through Constanta-Cernavoda track, built since 1860 by Offenheim company.

The Romanian Government organized two international competitions for the design and the construction of some bridges over the Danube and Borcea branch.

Unfortunately, the Government has not achieved the expected results so it ascertained the design and the construction to the Romanian engineers who were in the service of the General Direction of CFR railways for Fetesti-Cernavoda track. The engineer Anghel Saligny, a famous constructor of metal bridges, professor at the national School of Bridges and Roads, Department of Bridges, supervised the group of engineers.

In the accomplished projects whose estimation was checked up seven times, the crossing of Danube at Cernavoda was provided through a bridge with a central opening of 190 m and other four openings of 140 m, beside to a viaduct with 15 openings of 60 m.

A bridge, with three openings of 140 m and 11 openings of 50 m, was designed and realized over Borcea branch. A viaduct with 34 openings of 42 m was designed and built between the two branches of the stream, over a 14-km wide water.

Thus, the 4087,95 m of bridges formed at that time the longest complex of bridges built in Europe.

On October 9th/21st, 1890, the beginning of works at Danube bridge was realized in Cernavoda. This bridge was designed and built at 30 m over the Danube in order to allow the crossing of vessels with the highest cargoes.

The railway beds Fetesti-Cernavoda (21 km) that joined together three bridges represented the most important work in this field in Romania, the total volume being around 2.950.000mc.

The total cost of works (which lasted 5 years) was of 35 million golden lei, including also the cost of the tracks and railway stations. The inauguration of the bridges was on September 14th/26th, 1895, as part as a famous solemnity where His Majesty King Carol I participated, too.

The authorities traveled by a special train from the North Railway Station in Bucharest at 9.05 arriving in Fetesti at 12.30.

After the last rivet, a silver rivet was nailed, there were the inauguration of the document and a religious ceremony. The testing train composed by 15 railway engines passed over the bridge at a speed of 60 km/h, in a huge noise produced by the locomotives' whistles, the sirens of the ships on the Danube and by the fanfares' songs. Immediately after that trained passed, another one crossed over the bridge at a speed of 80 km/h.

All that time, Anghel Saligny stayed under the bridge on a boat, next to the workers who realized the splendid work.

That time, the bridge over the Danube in Cernavoda was named after the name of Majesty Carol I. It was the longest bridge in Europe and had the largest opening (190m) in Continental Europe. The complex of the three railway bridges was also the longest one in the world.

The bridge has been considered one of the most beautiful metal bridges in the world due to the symmetrical disposition of the supports to the central opening, to the optimal height over the sea and to the consonant and supple general outline.

The seven bridges over Danube from the Romanian territory will be modernized with 40 million euro

Quote:
Ministry of Transports intends to organize auctions for the modernization of the seven Danube bridges administered by Constanta Roads and Bridges Management in September. The contracts’ value is of 40 million euro, transmits Mediafax.
"The responsibilities are shared and we are ready to launch the auctions for the major repairs of the seven bridges over Danube" stated minister of Transports, Ludovic Orban.

The works will also include the architectural lighting after the model of Agigea bridge.

According to Orban, these bridges haven’t been repaired for 25 years.

The eighth bridge over Danube, from Giurgiu to Ruse, is going to be rehabilitated in partnership with the Bulgarian side. Romania and Bulgaria could spend 25 million euro each for modernizing the bridge.

Podul lui Traian, refăcut din laser

MEHEDINŢI. Autorităţile locale, în parteneriat cu cele din Serbia, vor să reintroducă în circuitul turistic Podul lui Traian, construit de Apollodor din Damasc.


Astfel, va fi pus la punct un proiect prin care podul va fi reconstruit cu ajutorul unei holograme laser, ce va fi proiectată între cele două ruine de la Turnu-Severin şi cea de pe malul sârbesc, de la Kladovo. Investiţia depăşeşte un million de euro, o parte din finanţare fiind asigurată de autorităţile româneşti şi de cele sârbeşti, cealaltă urmând a fi obţinută printr-o finanţare europeană.

The King Carol I Bridge (later renamed Anghel Saligny Bridge) was built between 1890 and 1895 in Romania over the Danube and Borcea and when it was completed it then became the longest bridge in Europe and the third in the world.

The bridge has a length of 4,037 metres of which 1662 m over the Danube and 920 m over Borcea and was designed by Romanian engineer Anghel Saligny. It is 30 metres above the water, allowing tall ships to pass under it. The bridge has four spans of 140 metres and one of 190 metres.

The two cities on the banks of the river which was built were Feteşti on the left side and Cernavodă on the right side. The bridge was used for almost a century, until it was replaced in 1987 with new bridge built next to it.

The bridge was inaugurated on 26 September 1895 and as a test on the opening, a convoy of 15 locomotives sped at 85 km/h.

-- Compania Nationala Administratia Porturilor Maritime Constanta planuieste construirea unui pod rutier la km 0+540 al Canalului Dunare - Marea Neagra si executarea de lucrari aferente infrastructurii rutiere si de acces in Portul Constanta.

Zilele trecute, Agentia Regionala pentru Protectia Mediului Galati a decis avizarea proiectului institutiei conduse de Constantin Matei. Lucrarea se va face in baza certificatului de urbanism 111 din 15 iunie 2006, iar terenul pe care se va ridica podul apartine statului roman, fiind doar in concesiunea CN APM Constanta. Proiectul podului a fost elaborat de firma Search Corporation SRL, iar lucrarea are termen de executie 30 de luni. Documentele depuse la APM Constanta spun ca "realizarea acestui obiectiv are ca scop imbunatatirea eficientei in transporturi de la si spre Portul Constanta, evitarea traversarilor zonelor orasenesti si realizarea legaturii directe intre cele doua zone, de nord si sud, ale portului". In documentele de mediu se mai precizeaza ca orice autovehicul care vine din tara, pentru a ajunge in zona de sud a portului, trebuie sa traverseze Constanta, pe ruta IC Bratianu - Aurel Vlaicu - Sos. Mangaliei - DN 39 - Lazu - Pod peste Canal - Agigea - prelungirea DN 39 - poarta 10, fara a putea evita zona oraseneasca. De asemenea, orice vehicul auto de mare tonaj care vrea sa ajunga din zona de nord a portului in cea de sud trebuie sa parcurga traseul: Poarta 5 - str. Caraiman - Aurel Vlaicu - Sos. Mangaliei - DN 39 - Lazu - Pod peste Canal - Agigea - prelungirea DN 39 - Poarta 10. Aceste trasee au dezavantajul unor durate de transport mari si determina aglomerarea circulatiei in Constanta, Lazu si Agigea. Asadar, din punctul de vedere al proiectantilor, investitia a aparut ca urmare a posibilitatii conectarii partii de sud a portului cu autostrada Bucuresti - Constanta, prin realizarea variantei ocolitoare a municipiului. Varianta ocolitoare care se intersecteaza cu Tronsonul 6 al autostrazii Bucuresti - Constanta reprezinta o sectiune a coridorului IV Pan European (Berlin - Bucuresti - Constanta - Marea Neagra - Istanbul) si din acest motiv primeste sprijin maxim din partea organizatiilor UE si a Guvernului Romaniei. Punctul final al variantei este in conformitate cu studiul de fezabilitate intocmit de Louis Berger Group Inc. Podul va avea o lungime totala de 420 m.

So few bridges

Why there are so few bridges across the Danube between Romania and Bulgaria? There seem to be quite a lot of bridges across the Danube within Romania though. I've heard that northern Bulgaria is the poorest region of the country, is the same applicable to Romania (except Bucharest)? Might this be a cause?

The poorest regions in Romania lie in its NE. The lack of bridges between Romania and Bulgaria is a result of poor cooperation between the 2 countries during communism. AFAIK, there are plans currently to develop roguhly 5-6 bridges between the 2 countries. Of these, 1 is U/C, and another 1 is under prefesability studies. The rest are just...plans. Hopefully, the 1st one will be finished in 2010, since it is very important for transportation routes and will benefit the 2 countries.

The poorest region of Bulgaria is the far North-West. Exactly where the Vidin-Kalafat bridge is now U/C . It is not the same with Central North Bulgaria and the NE which is the grain farm of the country. I guess we have to be thankfull to Stalin for at least thing - that he pushed Romania and Buglaria to build the Friendship Bridge Ruse-Giurgu If it wasn't him i guess there wasn't going to be even a single bridge over the Danube between us.
