Ilsur Metshin inspected the “green reconstruction” of the Ametyevsk highway hillsides
A large-scale “green reconstruction” is
being carried out in Kazan at the hillsides of the Ametyevsk highway. On an
area of 3 hectares, 2107 trees and 1800 ornamental shrubs have already been
planted. The progress of work was checked by the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin.
Landscaping works began in April, and
about 70 workers are engaged in tree planting every day. Roza Zabbarova,
director of the MUE Gorvodzelenkhoz told the Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin that
such large-scale landscaping work is carried out for the first time here. “There
is a large highway that runs through the area, and the hillsides are visible
from different sides. Green decoration will improve the area, as well as the
tree roots to strengthen the slope”, - R.Zabbarova told the Mayor of Kazan. Various
trees are planted on the hillside – rowan, maple, hawthorn, fir, pine, cedar,
willow and spiraea.
The Mayor asked how the plants will be
watered. Roza Zabbarova explained that the site has an automatic irrigation system
with a length of 10 km.
To make the hillsides look even more
colorful, perennials will be planted there, which will create flower patterns.
The improvement of the Ametyevsk highway hillsides is planned to be completed
by the end of May.
The green decoration will also be
visible at night – now decorative lighting is being installed on the hillsides.
Director of the MUE Kazgorsvet Rustam Abdulkhakov, who also took part in the
inspection, said that all 122 lamps are anti-vandal, waterproof and
energy-saving. “The lighting will be turned on automatically at night along
with the main lighting on the highway,”- R. Abdulkhakov explained.
Ilsur Metshin emphasized that gardening
of the Ametyevsk highway is a very important project aimed at creation a green
ecological framework of the city. “Green reconstruction is of key importance in
the improvement of Kazan and the creation of a comfortable urban environment.
Not long ago, this site was unusable, and thousands of cars pass through it
every day. We made the road, and now it's our turn to make improvements. Now
this place will be bright, colorful, will cheer up Kazan citizens and improve
the environment”, - I.Metshin said.
