Cleanup of the “Apollo” burden

Based on hydro-geological and environmental surveys in the area contemplated for Bratislava’s Apollo Bridge and in compliance with Government Decree no. 57 of 16 January 2002, the Bratislava City Council took it upon itself to clean up an “old” ecological burden in the city’s former industrial zone. Spanning the Danube River, the Apollo Bridge will pass through this old industrial area.

The construction extends to the premises of the old Apollo refinery which was destroyed by bombing in 1944-45, causing extensive soil and groundwater contamination.
