Zagreb bridges

CYCLING TOUR: Zagreb bridges

Zagreb Sava bridges a series of road, rail and pedestrian bridges that connect the left and right bank of the Sava River in Zagreb. Although spreads on both banks of the Sava, Zagreb has little bridges. According to the General Urban Plan of the City provides for the construction of several new bridges.

For centuries, the river exceeded the rafts, and the biggest turnover was on the way to Karlovac and not with the main crossing at the end of today’s Sava road. The first wooden bridge was built at the site, and in 1892 was replaced by an iron bridge with wooden help for the car and a pedestrian, who was later replaced by reinforced concrete slabs and asphalt surface. Only in the period from 1935 to same location built steel construction of the bridge on the existing piers in the river. This solution ing. Milivoj Frković entered history as the first composite structure. The old structure is moved to Jakuševac long as the Red Bridge used for the circulation of vehicles and pedestrians. Railway Bridge in Zagreb was built in 1862 near the present site at the end of the Sava road with a girder superstructure, and in 1939 was the project engineer. Jure Eregli built a bridge that is still in use today.
