I.Metshin: “The border between the city and our villages should be broken down”
The development of social and utilities infrastructure in the villages was
discussed today at the Business Monday meeting at the Executive Committee. The
heads of the districts reported to the Mayor of Kazan on the progress of road
repairs, installation the lighting points, the construction of utility networks
and social facilities.
Issues of development of the
villages require professional solutions
I.Metshin reminded that most of the villages were
annexed to the city only a few years ago with existing infrastructural problems.
“We have 97 residential areas nearby Kazan, the vast majority of them have been
annexed since 2007, - he said. - Residents are actively moving to villages, and
building houses there. Unfortunately, the social and utilities infrastructure
does not keep pace with the development of the villages. The number of new
lighting points, social infrastructure facilities and other indicators are positive,
but there is still room for improvement”.
The support of Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov
raises high expectations for solving problems with the village infrastructure,
as well as the creation of the Institute of Spatial Development, I. Metshin
noted. “Today we have plans until 2030, including the development of the Kazan
agglomeration. The border between the city and our suburbs and villages should
be broken down”, - the Mayor said.
Roads will be repaired in the
villages of Borisoglebskoye, Ametyevo, Plodopitomnik, Starye Gorki, Boriskovo,
Voznesenskoye and others
One of the key issues is the renovation of the road
network. According to Timur Alibayev, head of the administration of the
Aviastroitelny and Novo-Savinovsky districts, almost 500 million rubles have
been allocated for road repairs since 2012, 111 roads have been repaired, and
20 sidewalks have been paved. This year, it is planned to repair the roadway at
two streets – Bestuzheva and Kluchishchenskaya, as well as to repave the
sidewalk on Shosseynaya street in the village of Borisoglebskoe.
In the Kirovsky and Moskovsky districts, almost all
roads leading to residential areas have been built or resurfaced. “In three
years, 17 streets with a length of 9 km were renovated, the lighting was
installed,”- reported the head of the district administration Sergei Mironov.
Nevertheless, two-thirds of the village roads in the
districts still need to be repaired, S. Mironov added. This year, according to
him, Yugoslavskaya Street in the village of Krasnooktyabrsky, Vagonnaya Street
in Arakchino and Tan Street in Zalesny will be repaired.
Since 2017, more than 113 thousand sq.m. of roads have
been repaired in Vakhitovsky and Privolzhsky districts. According to the head
of the district administration Marat Zakirov, this year it is planned to repair
more than 14 thousand sq. m. of roads.
In the Sovetsky district, 85 roads with a length of 49
km have been repaired over the past 6 years. This year, work is planned on six
roads with a length of about 6 km for a total of 50 million rubles at six
residential areas, said the head of the district administration Roman
get more lighting
Along with the repair of roads in the Kazan villages,
work is underway to install lighting points. In the Aviastroitelny and
Novo-Savinovsky districts, since 2014, 1,454 lighting points were installed on
123 streets. Now, according to T. Alibayev, the village streets are equipped
with lighting points by 94%. This year, it is planned to install 38 more lighting
points on five streets in the districts – thus, the issue of lighting in the villages
of the districts will be completely solved.
In the Kirovsky and Moskovsky districts, 1,140 lamps
were installed in three years, according to S.Mironov, for safe illumination,
the installation of another 600 lighting points is necessary.
This issue is also being solved in Vakhitovsky and
Privolzhsky districts: only 60% of the streets were lit in residential areas 5
years ago, but now this figure is almost 80%. The roads at all bus routes,
social facilities, playgrounds are illuminated, M.Zakirov reported.
This year, 691 street lamps are planned to be
installed in the Sovetsky district – which will illuminate about 15 km of
streets. For 5 years, 1,900 lamps were installed, 50 km of roads were
illuminated. R.Fatkhutdinov noted, today the demand is more than 6 thousand
