Yekaterinburg administration to pave walkways with non-slip coating

Members of Yekaterinburg's building and sanitation committee announced that it will be paving the sidewalks and pedestrian stairways on Metallurgists Street with a non-slip coating.

Each day, hundreds of Yekaterinburg citizens use the sidewalks and elevated walkways surrounding the area, which can become dangerously slick with ice during the winter. In response, the committee approved the use of a special German resin on nearly 400 square feet of pedestrian walkways surrounding the street, Ekburg.ru reports.

City official Alexander Repin stated that the resin should last approximately three years before wearing off.
