A motorway on the southern bypass of Kaliningrad is of great economic importance both for the city and for the region, providing a road link connecting Russia to Poland, Germany, and the Baltic states. At present, the southern Kaliningrad bypass motorway cannot cope with the traffic flow because of insufficient throughput capacity of the Berlin Bridge, located at the 22nd kilometer of the route Kaliningrad – Russia state border with Poland.
After the construction work has been completed, the bridge crossing will have a total of six lanes - three lanes on the new bridge, and three lanes on the old bridge. The Berlin (Palmburg) Bridge was built in 1938 in the eastern suburbs of Königsberg near the town of Palmburg (now the town of Pribrezhnoe). The bridge was built of reinforced concrete, with a length of 633 meters.
