NIZHNY NOVGOROD, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Nizhny Novgorod Governor Valery Shantsev told President Dmitry Medvedev on Friday about the regional development.
Medvedev congratulated Shantsev and every resident of the Nizhny Novgorod region on the Day of People’s Unity. “As a rule, gifts are exchanged on holidays. What is your gift for the Day of People’s Unity?” he asked the governor. “We built the Obsky exit. That was a hard project but we did well. The construction of this road took 15 months of works and 500 million rubles,” Shantsev said.
“The first station of the Nagornaya metro line will be put into service next year,” he said. “We spare no expense for the metro. That is a great convenience for city residents. I hope we will witness the station’s opening a year from now,” Medvedev said.
The project costs about 20 billion ruble, and the lion’s share comes from the regional budget, Shantsev said. He thanked the federal authorities for support and promised to build 16 metro stations in all.
