MOSCOW, September 1 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow authorities succeeded in carrying out a new ideology on the development of Moscow, Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Saturday.
Speaking at a solemn ceremony on the Red Square devoted to Moscow Day, Sobyanin said, “Less than two years ago we formed a new ideology on the development of the capital. Moscow should become a city, which will be comfortable for life and for people. It seems to be simple words, but it required principally new programmes.”
“Today we can talk about the first results of our work,” he noted.
According to the mayor, the Muscovites can watch the results of the city redevelopment practically in any courtyard where thousands of new children’s communities and recreation grounds. “Dozens of city parks and squares develop on a new qualitative level,” Sobyanin noted.
He also talked about a large-scale programme for modernising the city’s healthcare system. “Every day thousands of difficult operations, which can be done in specialised medical centres, are conducted in ordinary clinics and polyclinics,” the Moscow mayor said.
Sobyanin also confirmed the city government’s intention to rivet attention to creating worthy conditions for the older generation and especially for veterans.
“I thank deputies of the Moscow Duma and local self-government, representatives of public and veteran organisations. I also want to thank Muscovites,” Sobyanin noted.
In addition, the mayor said the construction of the metro in Moscow had gained momentum. “We know about the pressing problem of Moscow – the transport problem. Now unprecedented resources are aimed at solving the problem. The construction of the metro has gained momentum and exceeds the Soviet epoch.”
According to Sobyanin, this year 8,500 kilometres of new lines are being introduced in Moscow. Three new stations will be opened and over 400,000 Muscovites will go by metro, the Moscow mayor said.
“The construction of the metro is an all-Russian project. Previously Moscow helped build the metro in Kazan and many other cities. Today metro constructors from Tatarstan and other regions work in Moscow. We are grateful to them for aid,” the city mayor stressed.
He recalled that the city had another task – to reconstruct priority roads. “Less than within a year Moscow constructors made up a design and worked out tasks to begin the construction,” Sobyanin noted.
The mayor stressed that Muscovites’ trips across the city should become quick and comfortable by common and private transport.
