South Bridge was built stages from 1982 to 1993 and from 1998 to 2000.
Opened in December 2000. It is part of the eastern arc of a bypass road around the city of the Dnieper, which is under construction.
The main task of the bridge is unloaded town the other three bridges and connecting the southern and south-eastern parts of the city with w / m Pridneprovsk (previously reached in Dnieper could only be through the Ust-Samara bridge, the north-eastern outskirts of the city).
During the construction of the bridge was used the technology on which it began to build on both coasts and had to connect in the middle. But when the workers arrived at the time of connection it appeared that spans from Pridneprovsky go higher than that spans from the Victory. Then it was necessary to raise the western part of the bridge to come together on the other. That is why the bridge was arched up to the middle of the form.
