Development project planned in Yekaterinburg

Governor of the Sverdlovsk Region Evgeny Kuivashey has announced plans to start a development program in Yekaterinburg.

The program will be called The Capital and will begin with a public discussion about the programs points, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Kuivashev said that the region's government was also asked to add a list of projects to the development program, which includes road building and urban development. In July, the discussion will be opened up to the public, which can suggest development ideas, as well.

Public transportation infrastructure is one of the key areas of development. Mayor of Yekaterinburg Alexander Yakob said that a specific junction next to Concern Kalina should be a top priority for improvement, according to Ural Business Consulting.

The government is working on coming up with the schedule and order of the projects, as well as financing terms.

Another plan is to build a junction on the Chelyabinsky highway using money from the federal budget, because the regional and municipal authorities will only finance project work, Ural Business Consulting reports.

Construction at the intersection of Moskovskaya St. and Loop Rd. has already begun. Authorities took into account public opinions voiced online when deciding the final design of the project, according to the Governor.

Kuivashey is allocating more than $30 million to The Capital from the region's budget. A portion will be directed to purchasing refuse collection and street-cleaning vehicles, while other funds will be spent on building junctions and repairing the city's main roads and yard entrances and passageways, Ural Business Consulting reports.
