Within the framework of the construction works, the bridge girders were strengthened, a new carriageway structure was built for the bridge, the waterproofing and covering, as well as embankment reinforcements were renewed. The bridge received new lighting and pavement. Security barriers were also installed. After the reconstruction, the bridge has become almost a metre wider – now it is 62.5 m long and the width of the carriageway is 7 m. Thanks to the excellent work organization and favourable weather conditions for the construction works, all scope of works for the reconstruction of the Abava bridge was carried out exactly within the planned deadlines.
