Moscow: B.Khmelnitsky Bridge by Nightcitylights Moscow: B.Khmelnitsky Bridge by Nightcitylights
Russia, Moscow, Bogdan Khmelnitsky bridge

Bogdan Khmelnitsky bridge was built in 2001 on the bases of Krasnoluzhsky rail bridge constructed in 1907.

The original Nicholas II bridge and its twin, Sergievsky bridge (now known as Andreyevsky bridge) were built in 1903–1907. They carried two tracks of Moscow inner ring railroad across Luzhniki bend. Both were designed as suspended-deck bridges by Lavr Proskuryakov (structural engineering) and Alexander Pomerantsev (architectural design). Proskuryakov's work, considered a marvel of engineering, was proven by the 1908 flood: water level exceeded the maximum design specification by a meter and a half; the bridges stood unharmed. After the February Revolution of 1917, the tzarist title was replaced with a politically correct Krasnoluzhsky, literally Red Meadows.

In 1990's the Third Ring road was built in Moscow, parallel to existing railway tracks. New Krasnoluzhsky road bridge was constructed in 1997-1998. Instead of scrapping the old steel arch, city planners re-used it as a structural core of the new pedestrian bridge, half a mile upstream. So Krasnoluzhsky bridge was moved to a new place, rebuilt and named after Bohdan Khmelnytsky, hetman of Ukraine (1595-1657).
