The governor of Almaty had a working meeting on the following repair of city streets
Almaty’s governor Bauyrzhan Baybek had a working meeting on the next repair of urban roads and sidewalks. This year, more than 120 streets for 111 km will be repaired. Besides it, new roads for 100 km will be built in 10 microdistricts of the city.
The head of the city mentioned about the number of complaints about hatches and pits on the central avenues and on the district streets.
Citizens should drive on good roads not in the autumn, but in the summer, therefore, when carrying out an average repair, it is necessary to break each section in terms of time, the number of people and equipment involved. There are longterm contracts for current repairs. Companies must invest in the purchase of modern technology and ensure quality. If contractors do not perform work within the specified period, they should be punished with fines. District governors should go around each place, in parallel deal with the facades of buildings, illegal extensions and coordinate the work of other services, said Bauyrzhan Baybek.
The head of the city mobility department, Sagyndyk Telibayev told that according to the weather conditions, the current repair of all main streets will be finished within 10 days.
To solve the problem of falling manholes, contractors have already purchased special equipment. This became possible, including due to the fact that for the first time in the country for carrying out patching, contracts for the PPP project for a period of 4.5 years were concluded with four companies.
This measure will allow more prompt repair and maintain the roads in proper condition in the long term. Thus, the current road repairs in the next four years will be made by Esik Zholdary LLP (Medeu and Turksib districts), DSU13 LLP (Bostandyk and Almalinsky districts), Konfors LLP (Auezov and Nauryz Districts), RSU “(Alatau and Zhetysu districts).
In turn, within the framework of medium repair, old borders, irrigation ditch trays, and even milled asphalt are reused on a number of secondary streets in the adjoined areas of the city.
Taking into account the Vision Zero program initiated in Almaty, aimed at creating a safe infrastructure, reducing accidents and deaths on the roads, during medium repairs, safety islands will be created and pedestrian crossings will be arranged. In addition, the possibility of reducing the turn radius at intersections to organize the safe passage of people will be considered.
During the working visit, Bauyrzhan Baybek also instructed to set up special stands with contact information for the responsible state bodies and heads of contracting organizations, to provide for improvement of the adjacent territory and to conduct a survey of previously repaired roads that are under warranty.
It should be mentioned that in the past few years almost 600 streets and more than 1,400 old courtyards have been repaired in Almaty. 300 km of channels and 1000 km of utilities have been replaced. All subways of the city have been renewed.Also punching of Nazarbayev avenue to Zhansugurov street with a ramp through railway tracks and Khmelnitsky street from Suyunbaya avenue to md. zhas kanat.
