Discussion of repair of transport highways of the region was continued on 22 km of the Blagoveshchensk-Gomelevka highway.
“Blagoveshchensk-Gomelevka highway with a length of 170 km. The road is used as a reference. Loaded, connects the region with Blagoveshchensk. This year there is a repair on two sections with a length of 2.6 km. The first section is 21-23 km. This year, we will hand over this facility by October 15. The next object is 89-92 km. Its readiness is more than 80%,”– Alexander Zelenin explained.
The Minister noted that within the framework of the BKAD, they are ready to start repairing six kilometers next year, if there is additional funding.
“This road has lived without repair for more than one inter-repair period. In fact, the road was repaired only as part of maintenance. Today, the road is being intensively destroyed. It is necessary to attract significant funds to restore. Therefore, we are actively engaged in designing and if additional funds are received, we will be ready to start working,”– the Minister said.
Governor Vasily Orlov expressed strong dissatisfaction with the condition of the road Blagoveschensk-Homelike in novooleksandrivka.
“One of our main support roads is in a terrible state. There are no speed limit signs. Very bad job “of Europedia”,– said the head of the region.
The Blagoveshchensk-Gomelevka highway passes through five districts of the Amur region: Blagoveshchensk, Tambov, Oktyabrsky, Mikhailovsky, and Bureysky.
“In the Amur region, a full diagnostics of the regional road network was carried out for the first time, its length is almost 6 000 kilometers. Some road sections have not been repaired for many years. Of course, it takes a lot of effort and money to bring everything into a normative form. In 2019, the road industry attracted four times more Federal funds than the year before. In 2020, the volume of Federal investments has increased to 7.3 billion rubles, of which 1.07 billion were allocated to the BKAD. We are doing everything possible to improve the quality of Amur roads,”– commented the head of the region Vasily Orlov.
