Mutko put an end to the “great construction projects” of Omsk

Deputy Prime Minister, Vitaly Mutko, who oversees the government, the construction sector, questioned the need for implementation in Omsk and Omsk region of several large infrastructure projects — metro, the new airport and hydroelectric dam on the Irtysh river. This writes the “Novaya Gazeta”.

Commenting on the proposal of the regional authorities, the plan of preservation of an unfinished subway, Mutko said that not see in it sense. “If you have no solution of issues, what to do, what’s the point of conservation? To finish in 20 years? You in the main sort out: to build or not,” said the official.

He also considered inappropriate the construction of a new airport Omsk-Fedorovka, which began under Soviet rule and tried several times to resume the process since 1996. According to Vice-Premier, the subject is too far from town — about 30 km from the centre of Omsk. This, as noted by the Plenipotentiary of the President in the Siberian Federal district Sergei Menyailo, will require the creation of new routes and traffic management.

In addition, Mutko noted the futility of further construction of the Krasnogorsk hydroelectric complex of hydraulic structures on the river. The reason for the construction of this object was previously called the lack of water resources in Omsk, however, the Deputy Prime Minister expressed the opinion that the waterworks “the strategic role of not playing.”

In total, the completion of all three objects is required, according to the officials figures, 55 billion rubles. This amount is more than two thirds of the revenues of the budget of the Omsk region in 2018 (up 78.2 billion).

“Thus, the results of the visit Mutko in the Omsk region was shocking for its inhabitants: for decades they lived in the everyday life of great buildings, which Deputy Prime Minister put a cross in one day”, concludes “the New newspaper”.More important news Telegram-channel “Tape days”. Signed!
