MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. No decision has yet been taken on contractors and the deadline of the construction of a launching pad for Angara carrier rockets at the Vostochny space centre, Alexander Mordovets, a deputy director of Russia’s special construction authority (Spetsstroi) told TASS on Sunday.
"We have resources to begin a preparatory stage for the construction of a second launching pad - for Angara carrier rockets, but so far we have no information on when the construction is to start," he said, adding that it was better to carry out construction works in spring and summer when weather conditions were favourable.
"We are waiting for relevant information from Roscosmos (Russian Federal Space Agency)," he said.
According to Mordovets, Spetsstroi is discussing with the employer issues of reimbursing for housing and meals expenditures for the growing team of builders. "The issue is now being coordinated with Roscosmos," he noted, adding that as soon as a solution was reached, the construction of additional camps for workers would start.
According to Spetstroi, about 10,000 people are currently employed at the Vostochny construction site. Moreover, it is planned to employ some 1,400 people more.
