An old postcard issued a century ago shows the humble crossroads of Pirogovskaya embankment and Liteyny Bridge (former Alexander II Bridge) on the right bank of the Neva river.

Nowadays crossroads with semicircular handrails and pedestrian passage near the river was built during the bridge's reconstruction 50 years ago. Today building enterprise "PILON" constructs a new tunnel under the Liteyny Bridge, which is scheduled to finish in December, 2010.

"Soon, a tender will be announced on building another facility of this kind — under Sampsonievsky Bridge. Thus, a speedway from the will-be Orlovskiy Tunnel to the Primorskiy Prospekt can be formed by the end of 2011", reported regional newspaper "Ekonomika I Vremya [Economics and Time]" May 2010.



(RU) Старая открытка, выпущенная сто лет назад, показывает нам обыкновенный перекресток Пироговской набережной и Литейного моста (тогда он назывался мостом Александра II) на правом берегу Невы. Современный перекресток с полукруглыми перилами и пешеходным проходом около реки был построен при реконструкции моста полвека назад. Сегодня строительное предприятие "ЗАО "Пилон" сооружает новый туннель под Литейным мостом, который намечено полностью сдать в декабре.

"Вскоре будет объявлен конкурс на строительство еще одного подобного сооружения — под Сампсониевским мостом. Таким образом, полоса непрерывного движения автотранспорта от будущего Орловского туннеля до Приморского проспекта может быть сформирована уже к концу 2011-го" - писала газета "Экономика и время" в мае 2010 года.
