The first of three ships departed from China's Nantong to Peljesac, onto which the first 30 segments of the span structure of the future Peljesac bridge were loaded. These are the parts of the main load-bearing beam, that is, the road section on the bridge. According to the available information, the first ship with parts of the span structure of the Pelješac bridge should arrive within a month, writes Jutarnji List.
Installation of the span structure begins after the construction of the bridge pillar. Specifically, parts of the span structure will be initially mounted on each side of the pillar. When the installation begins, it is estimated that 48 meters of span structure will be assembled per week.
The Chinese company CRBC started work on the construction site of the Peljesac Bridge on July 31, 2018 and one third of the planned works have already been completed.
