By Oleg_Lobzin
Good evening. Thank you all for your attention to my photos. And the comments.
One of the last photos. Tried out a new lens, the 50-fixed. I liked it.
Regards, Oleg.

I'm sorry. Forgot to add the description of the bridge in the picture.

Smolensky Metro Bridge in Moscow - a single span steel arch metro bridge across the Moscow River, located between the stations "Smolensk" and "Kiev" Fili line of the Moscow metro. It is the oldest bridge subway in Russia. The trains to the station Kiev opened March 20, 1937.
The authors of the project - engineers N. Polikarpov, P. Antonov, architects brothers K. and Y. Yakovlev Yakovlev. Project consultants - Engineering Professor NS Streletskiy and GK Evgrafov. Before the construction of the second metro line was held a design competition design of the bridge, and of the options was elected to the most humble. The bridge is decorated with the emblem of a steel underground the crown and cast-iron vases on the abutments.
Double-track bridge with a width of 3.55 m intertrack spaces track it on the whole straight and on the right side at the exit from the bridge begins a sharp turn to the south, to the Kiev station.
At the heart of the bridge - the two main flat arch, length 150.0 m boom lift 11,04 m (7.4%). Maximum height of the U-shaped profile of the arch 2.7 m (1.2 m at the joints). The distance between the arches - 9.5 m arches were made in circular patterns, and after loading the track superstructure was designed parabolic shape. Material - Steel 5 (for minor details - Steel 3). In addition to the main span of the bridge has five coastal reinforced concrete arches, complete circuit spans 19,225 + 19,225 + 20.5 + 150.0 + 19,225 + 19,225 m
River bridge foundations rely on massive flat caissons, each measuring 40,0 17,5 m (area of ​​over 700 sq. m.), Buried up to the limestone slab (depth of about 15 m).
April 5, 1953 trains Arbat-Intercession line was transferred to a new line of deep foundations, the regular traffic on the bridge stopped. It was reopened November 7, 1958 with the opening of a new Fili line, use the metro bridge and the station in 1935 and 1937. buildings.
In 1978, the approaches to the bridge were covered with noise absorbing duct, it is open only portions of the embankments and the river.
