Soon the mayor Vladimir Chaika declares restriction of movement of heavy-load transport on Varvarovsky Bridge what he declared on a press - conferences on August 6. It reminded that at City Council session deputies made the decision on it in February of this year, and in June it was supported also with the decision of the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies. However still any of them isn't executed. At the same time now, in the middle of harvesting the number of heavy-load cars with the grain which weight reaches sometimes 40 tons, sharply increased (on the bridge it isn't recommended to cars to pass heavier than 20 tons). Vladimir Chaika expressed serious concern about a condition of the bridge, and also its congestion. Not so long ago specialists of the Kiev institute "Dorproyekt" carried out expertize of Varvarovsky Bridge and came to a conclusion that it is necessary to take immediately measures not to allow its destruction. It is a question of radical actions, up to overlapping of movement on the bridge.
The mayor declared: "Our appeals to the Cabinet, to the Verkhovna Rada, to law enforcement agencies again are under consideration, and we have no way. Deputies already now make offers to expose picket, to put tents both to block the city of Nikolaev and to pass only that is necessary for the city of Nikolaev. It is our property. And we shouldn't allow at the level of the state which anywhere didn't help with anything to the city of Nikolaev, to allow tragedy of destiny. I don't want that all weight laid down then on shoulders of the mayor and services which are powerless because there is no that support which is necessary for us today".
The mayor told that now it is necessary to make coordination between the enterprises "Oblavtodor", "Ukravtodor" and GAI, to develop the scheme of a detour of heavy-load transport. By the way, the detour will make about 200 km on Kiyevskaya Route. Then the relevant services will have to inform drivers on way changes.
According to the mayor, on entrances to Nikolaev 4 weight points for determination of mass of cars are already equipped, and also the working group which will work over the solution of this question is created.
