KRASNOYARSK, March 6. /TASS/. Required investments in construction of new houses in Taimyr are about seven billion rubles (almost $121 million), the district’s acting head Vladimir Shishov said.
The district builds new houses to replace the old ones, which are over 30 years old now, he added.
"Our most moderate estimation is that in order to replace the houses older than 30 years in Taimyr’s settlements, we should build 752 houses of more than 91,000 square meters," he told TASS. "The construction price is between 65,900 to 87,200 rubles per a square meter, thus the total cost would be more than seven billion rubles."
The houses in Taimyr’s settlement were built mostly between the 1930s to the 1990s, thus, the official continued, now more than 80% of houses have been used for 30-84 years. At certain settlements, from where development of the Arctic began, the share of those outdated houses reaches 90-96%.
Most of the houses had not been repaired ever, and most of them are in poor technical conditions, the district’s head said. Electricity lines, stoves, roofs and basements in most houses require major repairing.
TASS said earlier, the Norilsk Nickel Company plans to improve within three years housing conditions in the Tukhard settlement, where practically all houses are in emergency conditions. Besides, the nomadic locals have to live in facilities, which used to be as temporary accommodations for geologists. The settlement does not have any social facilities or cultural, educational institutions.
Tukhard was established in 1968 as a starting point in construction of the natural gas pipeline Messoyakha - Dudinka - Norilsk. Presently, about 800 people live in the settlement.
