KRASNOGORSK, Moscow region, June 29 (Itar-Tass) —— Any road construction project must be implemented with due account of the public opinion, Moscow Regional Governor Sergei Shoigu said at the Friday meeting of the regional government.
“I cannot ignore the problem of disregard of the public opinion in the construction of roads, especially federal routes. Because of that every good cause [construction of a road or a bridge] leads to a scandal,” he said.
The governor proposed to hold compulsory public hearings and to listen to the opinion of local residents about construction plans. “Let us hold public hearings, recorded by television crews if necessary, so that we avoid such problems in the future,” he said.
A road construction strategy must be elaborated for avoiding altercations similar with those over the Khimki and Tsagovsky Forests, he said.
“If we have a cadastre and a road construction strategy, we will have no such problems as the Khimki or Tsagovsky Forests [public protests against the logging done to clear space for prospective roads] and other scandals,” he said.
The governor said that only a quarter of roads in the Moscow region met modern requirements.
Meanwhile, the number of vehicles is growing in the Moscow region. “Over 3 million vehicles have been registered in the region; besides more vehicles come to the region on weekends and holidays. Our roads were built in the 1960s-1980s and remained the way they were. The number of new roads is minimal,” he said.
