Krasnodar, 12 March. Krasnodar City Mayor Yevgeni Pervyshov recounts about developing and landscaping of the neighbourhoods, implementation of social projects, and many other peculiarities of his work.
Q.: How is the construction of social facilities moving on in the city?
A.: We can say that we have speeded up the ‘social conveyor’ of the city. Over the last three years, seven secondary schools and fifteen kindergartens were built in Krasnodar. However, it was just a drop in the bucket. All the new schools are now forced to work in two shifts. It means that we should be building faster, more and better. Currently, five new kindergartens are being built - in addition to other five that were returned into the municipal property and being reconstructed at the moment. Altogether, there will be ten new preschool establishments and nine new schools. And the construction of the tenth - a new building of the school No. 46 in Gidrostroitelei neighbourhood - has already begun. Undoubtedly, we will be keeping to such speed: projects for another 16 schools are being considered at the moment.
Q.: What Krasnodar also urgently needs is new and better roads. What can you say about their construction?
A.: According to experts, in 2016, 39% of the roads in Krasnodar had complied with the state requirements. We joined the federal project “Safe and high-quality motor roads” and made a real breakthrough. As on now, we have repaired 222 km of roads in the city. We can see the development dynamics: in 2019, the share of ‘proper’ roads neared 59%; by 2024, their percentage must be 85%. I believe that we will cope with this task. In 2017, we repaired 47 road sectors; in 2018 - 67 sectors; and in 2019 - 49 sectors. BY the end of this year, as many as 300 km of the roads must be repaired - it is like the distance between Krasnodar and Rostov-on-Don.
Q.: How does the municipality cope with the task of completing the abandoned infrastructural projects and restoring the outdated ones?
A.: I would like to give an account of our of the main projects - the storm sewer at Metalnikov street. You may remember that with the help of our construction companies, we managed to lay the sewer along Moskovskaya street, and from Rossiyskaya to Metalnikov streets. We had to lay nearly 200 m at the depth of nearly 2 m. We accomplished this work. Last year, the stilling basin was built. This year, the pumping station was set going.
Q.: People are anxious about landscaping. What are the results of the work in this sector?
A.: Over the past three years, we landscaped 17 public gardens and boulevards. This year, the second stage of landscaping of Vishniakovsky Garden will be completed. As you remember, part of the garden was in private use, though historically it had always been a public garden. We took all efforts to return this area to communal use. I hope that all works will be completed by the annual city festival.
