Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 2 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Dnepr River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • I believe this is the same bridge as the Pridneprovsk pipeline bridge referenced on Structurae. The German documentation I have for the bridge describes it as being near Saporoshje. The cities are 25-30 miles apart. The size and pictures match up perfectly.
