This is a reinforced concrete bridge 226.2 meters long and 36 meters wide crossing the Malaia Neva between Vasil'evskii Ostrov and the Petrograd Side. It bears the name of the famous contractor and timber merchant Avraam Tuchkov whose warehouses were located nearby. In 1758, a pontoon bridge was put in place mounted on wooden piles. Between 1833 and 1835, a many-bayed wooden bridge was built with one opening bay. Now the bridge had 20 bays granite piers with granite parapets. Also, there are granite steps from the bridge down to the water.
