Diamond Bridge across the Volkovka River 9.27.2014

Translated from Russian Wikipedia:
Diamond Bridge (Алмазный мост) crosses the Volkovka River in the Frunze district of St. Petersburg. It is located in the alignment of Salov and Fertile streets. The bridge is named after a former abrasive plant located near the bridge.

In 1930 a wooden beam construction bridge was built here. Its length was 34 meters and the width was 6 meters. The bridge was greatly expanded in 1950 with the removal of the sidewalks on the console.

In the early 1960s, the area became intensely developed and the bridge could no longer serve the increasing number of vehicles. In 1965 a modern concrete bridge girder trёhproletny-cutting system bridge was built, by engineer A. Kulikov and architect L. Noskov. It is a reinforced concrete beams design. The bridge piers and abutments are made ​​of reinforced concrete on pile foundations.

The deck and sidewalks are paved with asphalt. The metal railing featrues spiral grilles, which are set between metal tubes.
