In Chernyakhiv, in the Zhytomyr region, major repair of the bridge over the pond on the M-21 highway has begun.

The Service for Infrastructure Restoration and Development in the Zhytomyr region reported this on Facebook, Ukrinform reported.

"In the Zhytomyr region, in the village of Chernyakhiv, on the national importance road M-21 Vystupovychi - Zhytomyr - Mohyliv-Podilskyi, the Recovery Agency is starting to overhaul the bridge over the pond. The builders are currently arranging a temporary detour," the statement said.

It is noted that this bridge was built in 1958 and last repaired more than 40 years ago. Inspections have shown that it has cracks in the expansion joints, exposed and corroded armature on the span structure, chipped concrete on the supports, and destruction of the embankment reinforcement system. Currently, the structure cannot withstand the load.

The repairs are scheduled to be completed by the end of summer 2024.
