YESSENTUKI (Stavropol territory), February 16 (Itar-Tass) —— The transport prosecutor’s office suspended the construction of a skyscraper near the airport landing zone in Mineralnye Vody, a source in the southern transport prosecutor’s office told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The construction is within the radius of 30 kilometres from the airport's landing zone, which violates the requirements of the Russian Air Code and federal aviation rules for the use of the air space and is not authorized by the senior aviation official,” the source said.
The skyscraper is under construction at the crossroads of Bibik and Tbiliskaya Streets. The Mineralnye Vody inter-district transport prosecutor’s office conducted an inspection upon a request from the director of the Mineralnye Vody international airport. The builders were found to be lacking the permission from the city authorities.
“The court received a lawsuit asking to ban the construction of the foresaid high-rise residential building until the Mineralnye Vody authorities give a permit and the senior aviation official authorize the construction,” the source said.
