Gas (Gazovy) Bridge across the Bypass Canal 9.22.2014

From Wikepedia:
Gas Bridge (азовый мост) is a pedestrian bridge over the Bypass canal of St. Petersburg, which connects the left and right banks of the canal near the village. The bridge is located near the gas plant "Company gas lighting of St. Petersburg", hence the name Gas Bridge.

The first bridge was built after 1835 for the laying of pipes from the gas plant. A trehprolёtny metal bridge was built in the early 20th century. In 1933 the bridge carried the heating main. In 1946 is opened to pedestrian traffic. In 1984, a new bridge was built by engineer B. E. Dvorkin and architect V. Ivanov.

The bridge is an odnoprolёtny metal girder construction. It serves as the basis for bridge embankment wall. The span is in the form of two metal beams of I-section with a curved outline of the lower belt. The top spans are overlapped prefabricated reinforced concrete slabs. Within the structure are gas and utility pipes. The bridge is 30.7 m long and 3 m wide. The bridge deck is asphalt. There are iron railing and granite curbstones. Initially there were four metal floor lamps, but in the 2000s they were dismantled. By design, the bridge is identical to the oil and Mozhayskoe bridges.
