On May 24, a new pedestrian bridge from the Obolon embankment to the Obolon Island was opened in Kyiv. The funds for its completion were allocated by the Metropolis of Greater Paris.

In Kyiv, the construction of a wave-pedestrian bridge to Obolonsky Island was completed. This was informed by the mayor of the city Vitaliy Klitschko. In the video, he walked across the new bridge and invited Kyiv residents and guests of the capital to take a walk.

Construction of the facility began in 2021, it was suspended at the beginning of a full-scale war and resumed in the spring of last year. At the same time, construction of the recreation area began. It was built at the expense of patrons – foreign and Ukrainian.

The steel structures were made from bridge metal smelted at the Azovstal steelworks. This metal was sent from Mariupol a few days before the full-scale war.

The structures for the bridge were manufactured at the Azovstal enterprise. They were brought to Kyiv just a few weeks before the start of a full-scale war. Currently, we will not turn on the illumination of the main structure, only the economical LED lighting of the bridge railings, Klitschko said.

The width of the pedestrian facility is 4 m, the length is 164 m. The bridge will be comfortable for people with reduced mobility. The object will not interfere with the passage of small vessels to Obolon Bay.

You can already go for a walk in the capital's new, large recreation area – Obolonsky Island. A very beautiful, unique from an engineering point of view, pedestrian bridge connects the island with the Oboloni embankment and Natalka park,” Klitschko wrote.

At the end of January 2023, the mayor of Kyiv Klitschko announced that the Metropolis of Greater Paris had become the patron of the completion of the pedestrian bridge from the Obolonskaya embankment to the Obolonsky Island. The French allocated UAH 19.5 million for the construction work.
