It is planned to put the embankments in order after winter until the end of April.
Utilities of the capital have begun preparing the embankments for the summer season. In total, 78 objects are to be put in order after winter, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for housing and communal services and improvement. Peter Biryukov.
“The specialists of the municipal economy complex carry out work on sandblasting and washing the cast-iron railings, after which they will be primed and painted,” noted Pyotr Biryukov. “We are cleaning the gatherings and walking sidewalks, all work will be completed by the end of April”.
According to him, planned repairs will take place on the embankments in the summer, during which the cast-iron railings, granite cladding and parapets will be replaced.
“At some objects, the grouting of granite cladding will take place, it must be done every five years to increase the service life of the facilities,” said the deputy mayor. – Over time, the material of the seams collapses, most often due to the fact that grass begins to grow in them. This can lead to displacement and even loss of granite slabs. “
The repair of the joints will begin with sandblasting the stone, then the specialists will deal directly with the joining. The seams between the slabs will be cleaned of the old filler, rinsed, filled with polymer-cement material and rubbed with a special waterproof solution.
“For the townspeople, these works are almost imperceptible, because such repairs do not require any blocking of roads and sidewalks,” stressed Pyotr Biryukov. “Scaffolding is installed on the water side and moved from site to site.”
