15-20% of the whole work volume has already been completed within the framework
of the first stage. “Domestic sewerage, power lines, and three gas pipelines
are completely reorganized. Excavation work was carried out by 90%, the water
pipeline was reorganized by 50%, the work on stormwaters was carried out by
10%”, he said. The stormwater system on Kul Gali Street will be laid for the

from Grigoriev Street to Yarkaya Street to four lanes. However, contractors
faced certain difficulties in this sector: gas pipelines run under the road,
which are considered especially dangerous objects. According to Igor Kulyazhev,
the deputy head of the Executive Committee and the chairman of the Committee
for External Improvement, several solutions are proposed to protect gas
Metshin noted that this problem requires a serious technical solution that
needs to be coordinated not just with Gazprom but also with a number of federal
monitoring bodies. “It is clear that people do not see this problem but there
are serious infrastructure tasks because these pipes have been laying there for
decades. Nevertheless, the designers assure us that even repairing the first
section in 1200 meters will increase the road’s capacity by 50%. The first
stage of road repair works on Kul Gali Street will be completed by September.
And the residents who apply to us will feel the improvement already in autumn”,
