(KZN.RU, December 25, Ksenia Shvetsova). The outgoing year showed that the improvement of infrastructure affects not only the center of Kazan. Regular works are carried out in all remote areas and districts of the city. Ilsur Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan, stated this during the program “Theme” on the TV channel “Efir”.
Important changes have taken place in every district of Kazan this year, from the repair of roads to the reconstruction of social institutions and the renovation of parks and squares. “The city is developing in a polycentric way. That is, everything is done not just in the center, but in the remote areas, in the suburbs, in the settlements. And this is very important, we create conditions so that people living in the capital feel comfortable regardless of the area they live in”, said I. Metshin and gave specific examples of changes affecting all areas of the city. For residents of the Privolzhsky district, a landmark event was the opening of the new metro station Dubravnaya. In addition, work continued on the reconstruction of the Gorkinsko-Ometievsky forest.

“As for the Aviastroitelny district, one of the most important milestones was the signing of a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defense for the modernization and construction of ten TU-160, our missile carriers. This is a guarantee of jobs, taxes, confidence in the future of the Aviastroitelny district’s residents”, noted the Mayor.

The Mayor also added that the level of culture and sports life is rising in every district. “Of course, we have the Opera House, the Philharmonia and the Conservatory in the only copy.

And thanks to the support of our President and those unique republican programs, we are systemically creating such conditions today”, said the Mayor.
