Drawing bridges in St. Petersburg is planned to be suspended for the winter season on November 30 night. The date can be changed should cold weather set in earlier, a spokesperson for Mostotrest, the company responsible for bridge operation and maintenance, told Saint-Petersburg TV Channel.
In severe cold weather, bridges are not drawn, the exception being technical operations planned in December in order to prepare the bridge mechanisms for the winter.
The navigation period on St. Petersburg rivers and canals will be over on November 15.
