In the spring on the site of government purchases it was declared at once 14 auctions with a total amount at 350 million rubles. All tenders were on replacement of asphalt by a stone blocks in the capital of Russia. But is already closer to fall the Mayor of Moscow made the decision on a freezing of this project.The sponsor of placement P&G Articles on the subject "Why in Moscow Will Not Put a Stone Blocks Any More" Why refused a tile to find in Moscow Kak Father Frost Kak will pass elections of the Mayor of Moscow Zamen of asphalt on a tile began in Moscow in 2011. Such decision was made by the mayor Sobyanin. In one and a half years large-scale works were carried out, namely about 400 thousand square meters of a stone blocks more than one billion rubles are laid in the total cost. The city authorities planned to change a covering for the area of 1,13 mln sq.m. However ideas were not realized.
The first reason for which did not begin to change asphalt for a stone blocks – banal shortage of means. In the capital and there are a lot of problems which demand large financing. And expenses in four billion rubles would leave a set of structures without grants. At the moment 350 million rubles which are already allocated for replacement of asphalt, for example, will go for repair of a paving.
The discontent of locals became the second reason because of which innovations were postponed. The tile on sidewalks was laid roughly. Pedestrians made complaints, arranged pickets. Of course, it could not pass unnoticed Sobyanin. Instead of improving quality of repair work, it simply cancelled all innovations. Already laid stone blocks it is planned to transfer to squares and parks.
According to many inhabitants, the decision on replacement of a covering of sidewalks looked not as attempt to arrange well the city and as desire of the authorities to prove that they after all care of the capital. In 2011 slightly more than a half of Muscovites were resolutely against laying of a tile. Next year the number of inhabitants, discordant with the decision of the mayor, increased. During the winter the stone blocks was strongly deformed. And though the authorities claim that the covering looks ideally, numerous bloggers post photos which confirm the return on the Internet.
Movement on some streets of Moscow became problematic. Girls and women broke heels, scooters could not make a trip, and young parents claimed that it is impossible to roll carriages on a stone blocks. To solve at once two problems: to save money and to calm citizens, and the decision on city streets to leave asphalt was made.
