Experts will be carrying out a load test, drilled probe and other diagnostic work on the bridge this week to determine its technical condition. The bridge was carried out by the Technical Communications Department (TSK) in steps starting in July, and the results should be known mid next year.
For the current phase of the survey, the experts used the planned tram station between the National Theater and Újezd. During this time, the workers will change the central crossing point of the tram lines and the connection with the Legion Bridge, after the transport company, repair the boards and tear off the rails. The work follows the repair of the track at Národní, Spálená and Lazarská Street.
Problems with the state of the bridges came to the spotlight after the fall of Troy at the end of last year. Alongside the Legion Bridge, a diagnosis of Mosta Hlávka is now being carried out, and a bridge diagnostic in the south of Connecticut is being prepared. The Lane Bridge, which had to be temporarily closed for cars and trams or Palacky Bridge, is also wrong. At the end of October, one of the bridges over the Vltavská metro station and the subway station had to be closed.
