Reconstruction of the Cathedral square is perceived among the citizens is ambiguous, however, it is in full swing. This convinced the Nikolaev journalists who visited the site on July 11.
Work here daily 23 people – drivers, machine operators, assemblers, tile pavers, and to date has completed 25% of the planned works.
– Made the road nothing – about 5 thousand square meters covered with granite tiles – 270 sq. m. of the Underlying layers – 3 thousand sqm of Stacked membrane – 800 sq m in total – 2700 sq m, – says the foreman of the “PIK-STROJJ,” Evgeny Karpov.
On this object works of the Odessa firm “Peak-System”, which has experience in areas such as Vladimir hill and part of St. Andrew’s descent in Kiev, Primorskiy Boulevard and the Transnistrian area in Odessa. Odessa laid tile, said Eugen Carpov, will stand for 10 years, because the technology observed:
– After the road nothing we are doing 10 cm gravel Foundation. Next comes a geotextile mesh, which increases the strength of the base. Then there are the underlying layers of sand. Then comes the waterproofing membrane, which increases the strength of concrete. Then fit reinforcement mesh, 15 – cm concrete, 5 cm marzouki and 7 cm paving granite tiles.
There are already in the area and excavations under the bowl two pedestrian fountains of size 15 by 15 and 12 by 10 meters. However, you will have time to mount them to the completion of the reconstruction area is a big question, because the Italian manufacturer will ship the product only after payment. But not only this creates difficulties for the builders found the Foundation of the former magistrate also could become a drag on the reconstruction of the Cathedral square.
– There was a difficulty with the excavations of archaeologists, then I can’t make the device road the trough, can’t leave technology projects. The designer will make a decision – either to contribute to the project or it will be author. The form in which it will be, I don’t know. On the Boulevard we made a sarcophagus. There we also found the ancient Greek excavation and made the coffin, – said Evgeny Karpov
According to Yevgeny Karpov, in his work on the Boulevard because the sarcophagus was delayed by a month, but in case of Nikolaev it is perhaps not the main problem. Biggest problem remains financing. Now works are performed at the own expense of the contractor, but it can stop not today or tomorrow, because working for nothing is a vain work. At session of the Nikolaev city Council on 10 July, funds were allocated from the city budget for the reconstruction of the Cathedral square, but the exact amount of allocated funds is not known by anybody – called 12-th and 19-th million. The day of the visit to the site the journalists have promised to clarify the financial aspects of the reconstruction area in a week.
