hello
, Bridge veresk engineering feats of our time is taken into account. The bridge in the reign of Reza Shah in Iran by the Germans, during World War II, the city Hacked province, and led by its Austrian Srmhnds (Walter Ayngr) was created. The bridge connecting the railways of north-south. They all wonder, and with very simple tools, such as drills, dynamite and hand made. And has not been used in the construction of any steel structure
This bridge during World War II "Victory Bridge" was called.
Shah personally to inaugurate the bridge, his birthplace was the same Hacked, and his command of the Austrian Srmhnds (Ayngr) will also be required to pass the first train on the bridge was under the bridge, to the destruction of the bridge, the first a person was killed in the incident to his
The building was built of brick and cement and washed sand, and the reinforcement is not used in its construction. In other words it naked mortar building was built.
Volume of 66 m span arch bridge in the heather with the original, and 110 m above the valley bottom, totaling 4,500 cubic meters. The bridge has an overall length of 86 meters. Costs, making it at that time was over 2 million and 600 thousand dollars. To build a great bridge, a design based Brastfadh of masonry, the most affordable was adopted. Paul heather, the most important engineering works, railway north of Iran, and the National Historic Registry Number is 1534. Heather of Iran's strategic bridges, which were built by engineers from the German and Austrian 70-year guarantee.
The bridge between the great mountains, and difficult transition, "Basabad" that connect to each other
In 1943, the Allied invasion, Iran was imminent and Germany strongly that, in turn, the Allies occupied Iran, and the subsequent military aid and food to the rest of Stalingrad, a man named Gen (Mayer) names from the "Hitler" to "Shah" will, in that letter, Reza Khan asks Iran to Hitler, all the bridges and tunnels of the Germans, the Iranians have made for the railways, including Paul heather blew up to the Allied invasion of Iran would send troops and food from south to north, and to the Russian border delays and is associated with many problems. And the Germans have enough time to destroy Stalingrad. The "Hitler" to "R. King" promises to end the war, and victory over the Russians, thanks to the efforts of Reza Shah, the current conflict, the railways, bridges and tunnels, and even better for will Iran. But Shah, in answer to a letter from Gen. Myers asked Hitler to send his greeting to the Fhrer to Hitler's confidence, that Iran was a member of the Geneva Conventions, and the war has been declared neutrality. Thus, no country, no right to enter Iranian territory during the war.
Bridge veresk was taken from the name of the engineer who was involved in building the bridge. His name (Shzh | Vvsk respectively). Because there is no check in the Farsi speaking, and pronunciation of the word was hard for many, the name was known.
The engineer from Germany (Bohemia, Germany), and since the bridge was built during World War II, as well as good relations between the two countries, Iran and Germany, was established at that time, the construction of the bridge, German engineers used calculated.
Bridge veresk, Hacked in the city, away from view. Passenger Trains (Tehran - Surrey) and (Tehran - Golestan) After more than 70 years, four times on each day passes. Fuel and freight trains pass over it.
