of the TV program "Theme" at "Ether" channel with the
participation of the Mayor of Kazan:
This is the program "Theme", Alexey Kuleshov is in the studio, hello!
Our studio guest today is the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Raisovich Metshin. Good
I.M .: Good
Judging by the huge number of issues that have come and continue to come to the
program in your address, meeting is welcome to the citizens, shall we say. I
remind you that you can ask a question in the air. The call is free.
Raisovich, let's start with one of the hottest topics. This is road repairs.
Especially since the flow of messages in this thread is vast. At our last
meeting in early March we began to talk about it, but then it was not very
clear what the scope of work is ahead. How much money will be spent on
repairing roads this year, and most importantly, what will be repaired?
First of all, I want to say that winter has not spared our roads this year,
unfortunately. The worst thing for the roadway is the temperature transition
through 0. If last year we had twenty-three such transitions - when first 0
degrees, then minus, the water freezes, the pavement inflates - in this year there
were was seventy-five such transitions! This is the first time in my time
working as a Mayor. And we see a lot of problems in yards, driveways and on the
main highways, unfortunately.
we start with a digit in billion rubles, is it a lot or a little? If we take last
five years, we spent about 16 billion rubles on the repair of the roadway. That
is, it is easy to calculate: about three billion rubles a year. This is preparation
for the Universiade and for the World Cup and other events. And every year,
thanks to our President Rustam Nurgalievich Minnikhanov, he allocates
is no exception, at the start we have a billion rubles, which will be spent as
follows: 330 millions are planned to be sent to the main highways and roads
that are "screaming" in the literal sense about need of major
repairs; there are funds provided for patching; and about 170 millions rubles
will be spent on settlement roads. Moreover, on 38 streets the road will appear
for the first time, that is, before there never was. Somewhere it will be in
the gravel, but in any case it is not a dirt path, it is the road, on which it
will be possible not only to ride, but also to go by foot. And 500 millinos rubles
will be spent on the yards and driveways, which will allow us to improve the
conditions in the 234 yards and 22 driveways. That's the amount we have at the
I want to emphasize that each year after the receipt of additional revenues the
President of the Republic allocated it to us during the season, in the summer,
late summer. Let us pray together that the situation in the economy will allow to
receive additional revenues in the budget of the republic the first, and then the
President will support as he does every year.
A.K .: That
is, it turns out that at the moment the list is formed finally, and there is no
hope of anything beyond the planned repair?
I.M.: No, hope dies the last, and in this case
we simply have the amount of work, which can be found on the site KZN.RU. There
you can see which roads are already planned. But once again: as the additional
revenues to the budgets of the republic and the city would come, we hope that
the list will be expanded.
A.K .: When
roads for the school buses will be repaired?
I.M .: Yes,
it was a separate application along with the traffic police of our city and republic.
President allocates 290 million rubles on school routes. It is a plus to a
billion, of which we speak with you.
There are already questions from our audience. Let's listen.
evening, Ilsur Raisovich! You are talking about the roads, and we have a question
whether 2nd Yuogozapadnaya Street will be renovated? It is not possible to
drive, cars simply broke.
Thank you for the question. As I remember the list, and it's big enough, repairs
for at 2nd Yuogozapadnaya Street are planned this year. You can see at the
portal of the city Mayor’s Office.
A.K .: In
other words, the repair will be, the road will be put in order?
I.M .: Yes,
it is in the plan.
Ilsur Raisovich, if continue the topic of road repairs, you said that the city has
a billion currently. And how much money it is necessary, that all the roads
were in an ideal state?
I,M .: We
called this figure. It is not as much because I want. There are standards. The roadway
should be changed every 5-6 years. Recently, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin visited
as for the Sports Council. They change the roadway every 2 years. Every 2
years! He has a headache - not a lack of money, as we have, but how to get done
in time. Because there is only one night, but for technology 6 hours are needed
to the road were done. And there have only 3 hours. So they change the coat every
2 years. We would change, if God forbid, one time in 5.5-6 years. It takes
about 6 billion rubles. We have a billion. But we need more new construction,
we need new roads, new interchanges, new pedestrian crossings. So we stretch
the blanket on the amount of money.
A.K .: You
said that yards in addition to roads will be repaired. There are a lot of requests
to make an order in a particular yard. How a yard is selected to do some work there, and most
importantly, how can assist the residents themselves to make their yard
included in the program?
First of all, I want to say that over the last 5 years we have put in order 40%
of the domestic territories of the existing needs. How they are chosen: of course,
first of all, the state of a yard, a management company, the head of the
district, appeals of residents to the online reception of the Mayor and the
"People's control", the activity of the inhabitants themselves -
these components are very important. And, of course, first we look at yards of capitally
repaired buildings, because after the repair of houses then they "ask"
to be repaired too. One program is followed by another.
of the residents is very important. There are good examples, when at a
gathering with citizens, when visiting those or other neighborhoods, people do
not just require a major overhaul, but also, above all, take an active part in
the improvement and maintenance themselves. The activity of the inhabitants has
not the last role. We listen to them carefully and try to answer their
A.K .: That
is not enough that all the residents of the house wrote the letter in the
I.M .: Yes.
It is important that they take part in it. There are such examples.
