Avtostrada concreted half of the piles needed to build the left-bank interchange of the Darnytskyi bridge

On the bridge construction site, Avtostrada specialists work around the clock, arranging two bored piles per day.

Bridge works are performed with the help of two powerful drilling rigs. One of them - Bauer BG 45 Premium Line, 2021 model year, the company bought in Germany.

Another Bauer BG 36 drilling rig is working to speed up work on the site.

In particular, the company's specialists make sheet piling for the grille of the support body, the grilles themselves, building berths for the enlargement of elements of metal girder structures (slabs, consoles, beams), temporary supports for the installation of finished structures.
