Yekaterinburg to Get 100 km of New Heating Grids, 50km of Water Pipes in 2020

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 24, 2019. Mayor of Yekaterinburg Alexander Vysokinsky held a work meeting with Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Evgeny Kuivashev to discuss urban improvements in Yekaterinburg. The news was announced via the town council’s website.

Governor Kuivashev pointed to the need to select the contractors carefully, as builders must ensure good quality of all the street improvement jobs they do and complete their work on time and in full.

‘The city is embarking on a large-scale urban improvement program in preparation for Yekaterinburg’s 300th anniversary. Plentiful funding has been allocated for the purpose. We certainly need to keep an eye on how this money gets spent. All the projects relating to renovations of parks and streets must get completed in time for the anniversary, which means we need to use the most advanced technologies available at the moment, starting with the design and layout stage. The plan is subject to adjustments, should these be necessary,’ the Governor said.

Alexander Vysokinsky said a number of streets and roads were getting rebuilt on the town council’s regular schedule, with the completion deadline set for November. Certain infrastructure units on the embankment in Gorky St should get commissioned before the end of the month. According to Vysokinsky, the reconstruction of Zelenaya Roshcha Park underwent some modifications because of the need to do more archeological excavation, but the work is still in full progress.

‘Our first task is to start dealing with the contractors. We are not happy with their performance at the moment, so we’ll have to adopt new approaches and contractor cooperation schemes next year and change the way our tenders get coordinated,’ Vysokinsky, said.
