The first welded bridge


The first welded bridge in Yugoslavia on the Timok River near Zaječar


In 1937, the Mostogradnja Jasenice AD built the first welded bridge on the Timok River near Zaječar. A manual arc welding technique was used. To build the bridge by welding, the factory had to obtain a certificate from accredited institutions of Yugoslavia and Europe. It was a great feat at the European level.
