BLAGOVESHCHENSK, September 8 (Itar-Tass) - Head of the Federal Road Agency /Rosavtodor/ Roman Starovoit, who on September 7 was in the Amur region and inspected from a helicopter the flooded regions, says the authority has allocated almost three billion roubles for repairing of the region’s road network.
“We have been forming the necessary sum of money from the means we saved at the trades throughout Russia,” the authority’s site quotes Starovoit as saying. “All the money has been transferred to the Far East to reimburse the losses there. We have collected already about three billion roubles.”
The official said the complete repairing of the roads in the Amur region could require about 2-3 years. In the region, affected remain over 1,200 kilometres of regional and local roads and 71 bridges.
