On August 4, Vladimir Sipyagin made an inspection visit to three sites located in the city of Vladimir. First the head of the region went to the Kommunar neighborhood, where a new school is being prepared for opening. It was built on the site of the old one, which was designed for 500 students. Now the first bell is to ring for 1100 students. And the maximum load of the school is 1500 people. It is good for the district, which is actively developing, said the governor.
At the moment the school is 99% ready. There is still work to improve the area, some elements of the building are being painted, the windows are being cleaned, and the new equipment in the classrooms and other rooms has already been installed inside.
Great attention is paid to the safety of children. Students will enter the school through turnstiles. More than 50 video cameras are installed along the perimeter of the educational institution and in the premises.
The new school has the largest gymnasium of all educational institutions in the region. There are also two swimming pools. One is 25-meter long for high school students and the second is for kids. The school has a huge assembly hall, which is bigger than some cultural centers in the districts.
It took about 900 million rubles to build the school, most of the allocated funds came from the regional treasury.
“For a year and a half we have been building this school practically only with regional financial resources. We received a federal grant of 320 million rubles only this year. There is also a municipal contribution of just over 40 million rubles. All together, the school will be completed,” said the governor.
After seeing the school, Sipyagin went to the Marcegaglia factory in the industrial area, next to the CHP. It manufactures metal products. Over the past five years, revenues here have grown from 1.2 billion rubles to 4 billion.
Now Marcegaglia wants to expand production, build a new building and buy modern equipment. The region is ready to help the enterprise, said Vladimir Sipyagin:
“Future investments amount to more than 3.5 billion rubles. I instructed the economic bloc to make a cooperation plan for the possible receipt of funds from the Development Fund, regional and federal budget and to help with other forms of support”.
The governor was shown how the company currently operates, what products are made, and was told about the history of the company and how they cope with difficulties in difficult times.
The last object on the governor’s trip was the Rpensky driveway under construction. “My soul rejoices”, these were the words that Sipyagin uttered at the construction site. With all the positive aspects, problems at the site could not be avoided. For example, the initial geological survey proved to be incorrect.
It turned out that the soil in this place is different, and not what we expected to see. We had to make changes to the project – we had to increase the length and diameter of the piles to be driven, and there were more than three thousand of them. The adjustment increased the cost of the project by 100 million rubles. Added to that was the rise in metal prices.
“The metal here is about nine thousand tons. The initial price in the project was 40 thousand rubles, but now it is more than 80 thousand rubles, i.e. the price has doubled. From 400 to 500 million rubles just for the metal, the costs have increased,” said the governor.
According to approximate calculations, the construction of Rpensky proezd may cost three billion rubles, while initially it was planned to spend about two billion rubles. Additional funds will try to find in the federal budget, and if it fails, then in the regional budget. But the head of the region is sure that the construction will be completed in 2023.
Recall that previously dismissed first deputy Sipyagin Roman Godunin in May said that Rpensky proezd may be completed at the end of 2022. However, the regional administration then questioned the reality of this promise.
