SOCHI, July 16 (Itar-Tass) - Sochi has entered the stage of full-scale cleaning during the preparation for the 2014 Olympic Games, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak who is in charge of the Olympic project told journalists on Tuesday. According to him, all the necessary Olympic infrastructure is already built and it is time to “clean up.”
“The stage of full-scale cleaning after the major construction work has come. Just in two months by the time of the International Economic Forum everything should be put in order here in the Olympic Park, no traces of construction should be left. All new facilities must be clean, and their territory should be treed and covered with grass,” Kozak said.
The deputy prime minister said that the readiness of the Olympic Park will be assessed together with the participants and guests of the Sochi-2013 Investment Forum also by members of another mission of the Coordination Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the last before the opening of the Olympic Games in Sochi, which will arrive in late September.
According to Kozak, the builders are yet to complete the construction of 8 thousand hotel rooms in the Imeretinskaya valley. “By September or October they should be built, and their start-up and commissioning will begin. So far everything goes on schedule in this sphere,” Kozak emphasised.
