«Interim governor of St. Petersburg Alexander Beglov says that last year’s mistakes must be avoided. That’s why a decision to expand the snow-plowing lot has been made. By December 1st, 500 more trucks and multi-functional mini-tractors will be purchased. A particular attention is given to maintenance of the heating network. Just for your information – specialists have a term “enumerated damages to heating network”. In St. Petersburg it stands at 2 damages per 1 kilometer. And now – in order to lower this statistic – 3 billion rubles was allocated from the city’s budget. Moreover, the first factory producing snow-clearing machinery has opened in St. Petersburg. All this is aimed at combating any type of weather this winter».
«We must be prepared for the winter. To make the needed conclusions, so we have no collapses. Weather can be different, but we must be ready even for anomalies».
