[EN] Kundzinsala was incorporated in Riga city already in 1917. Still, up to 1959 the only possibility to cross the river was using a boat, or, in winter – going across it on foot. The Sarkandaugava Bridge over Kundzinsala was built in 1959. As the building operations of Kundzinsala started in the 20th century, all the necessary materials for house-building, as well as top soil were delivered to the island by boats. The bridge stands on 4 piers. For the construction of the bridge the builders searched for the narrowest place in the river, which is 15 metres.
