Construction of bridges - Azerbaijan

Road bridge on Pirallahi island

Large-scale projects aimed on creating a modern road and transport infrastructure are being implemented throughout the territory of Azerbaijan. "EVRASCON" Corporation takes an active part in the modernization of existing highways, the construction of bridges and overpasses in the capital and regions.

One of the successful projects of the Сorporation was the implementation of the construction of a road bridge in the Pirallahy district of the capital, connecting Pirallahy Island with the Absheron Peninsula. Sea waves were constantly eroding and incapacitating the road built on a bulk dam in the 50s of the last century. Then, in the working-class settlement on the island, there lived mostly families of oilmen.

The new bridge, which meets the highest standards adopted for such structures, is located on the 23rd kilometer of the Gala-Pirallahy highway. The bridge length is 442 m, width - 14 m, the width of a lane - 12 m. Under the bridge, the middle span of 81.4 m length, and 11 m of height water transport can be freely realised. At the entrance to the Pirallahy bridge, the access road is 1.1 km long. At the exit from the bridge, the length of the access road is 850 m.

The project was completed in May 2017. The opening ceremony was attended by President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva. The awesome bridge, which connects Pirallahy Island and the village of the same name with the mainland, not only provides comfort to residents of the village, but also opens up opportunities for the development of tourist infrastructure along the coast.
