Penza, 17 November 2017. PenzaNews. An official event devoted to putting into operation the repaired road in Sukhumskaya street leading to the Sputnik City will take place on Saturday, November 25. This was reported by the head of the regional Ministry of Industry Alexander Grishaev.

"Even though the road is already used, an official opening that will feature the governor will be held on November 25," the interlocutor said adding that final activities at the road were carried out at that moment.
According to the minister, the works were carried out by the general contractor – the company "Avtodoroga" and the subcontractor – the firm "Termodom".
Alexander Grishaev noted that residents had to endure temporary inconvenience but as a result, they would get a carriageway in a good condition.
"It is impossible to drop the road with pedestrians and lighting from a helicopter. Taking into account the urban environment, it was made rather fast. I struggled for a year to have the road built. The year of effort led to the result," he explained.
Currently, pavements are constructed and light supports are installed in Sukhumskaya street.
The pavements at the section from Olimpiyskaya street to the shopping centre Ivanovsky were already repaired. New traffic signs were installed there, the pedestrian crossing was moved to another place, entrances to yards and an Auchan supermarket were built.
At the same time, the slope of the road was constructed in such a way that the water that does not go into the rainwater disposal flows to the pedestrian crossings.
As part of the repair work, metal fences were installed throughout the stretch.
Judging by the road markings it is planned to move the pedestrian crossing that used to lead to Ivanovskaya street to another place.
It will be located opposite the shop "Sura". However, the zebra crossing was drawn aside from the place where an access ramp for pedestrians with strollers and persons with disabilities was installed.
The conducted repairs did not save Sukhumskaya street from traffic jams in morning and evening rush hours.
Drivers think that it happens due to traffic lights: for vehicles that turn to the right – in Ternovskogo street – the green light is on during less than 10 seconds.
