In Nizhny Tagil, the pace of reconstruction of the overpass on Tsiolkovsky Street was accelerated. This was done in order to be in time for City Day, which is less than two weeks away. Vladimir Ostanin, a representative of the contracting company Uralstroymontazh (USM), told this to Vse Novosti news agency.

Last week, builders opened a new exit from the overpass leading towards the roundabout on Serov Street. Now at the construction site they are actively compacting the base of the road, which will soon be asphalted, tiling sidewalks, installing a second tram track, and laying communications.

“During the work, we found a heaving area near the Central Department Store, over the weekend we “hammered” it and compacted the base. The workers are now filling up the sleepers of the second tram track and landscaping the territory. The sidewalks will be made of Bekhaton tiles, like on Kosmonavtov Street,” Ostanin said.

Also, after an appeal by the journalist of the Vse Novosti news agency, the contractor, together with the construction customer, were able to agree and decided to expand the sidewalk in the area of ​​house No. 53 on Oktyabrskaya Revolyutsii Street.

A very large porch was made near the Door & Floor store, due to which the sidewalk turned out to be quite narrow. So that pedestrians could safely disperse, we found a solution and increased it symmetrically. It was not possible to make the sidewalk much wider due to the customer’s instruction to leave the largest number of green areas,” added the USM representative.

In addition, builders are working on October Revolution Street, near the Central Department Store and the Yunost pool under the second stage of a billion-dollar contract. Now various engineering communications are being laid there and sidewalks are being built.

The reconstruction of the bridge connecting Tagilstroy with the central part of Nizhny Tagil has been ongoing since May 2021. The launch of traffic along all lanes of the crossing was postponed more than once. Partially, the overpass was opened for cars only by the New Year. At the beginning of June 2022, the municipal Tagildorstroy entered the facility as a subcontractor. Now they promise to finish the bridge by the City Day. This date was once again outlined by the head of the Sverdlovsk Ministry of Transport, Vasily Starkov, at a press conference on the interim results of the Safe High-Quality Roads national project. Answering a question from Vse Novosti news agency about the timing of the launch of the movement, he said that, together with his deputy, he checks the progress of work on a weekly basis and is sure that the object will be able to be “pulled out” and transport will be launched in all lanes by the 300th anniversary of Nizhny Tagil. After that, the reconstruction of the gas pipeline and the renewal of the road along the October Revolution in the direction of Gazetnaya will begin. In 2024, the contract should be closed.
