Call for building more homes, infrastructure outside Minsk

MINSK OBLAST, 6 October (BelTA) – Increasing the housing density in Minsk is not a good idea. It is necessary to build more homes and infrastructure beyond the Minsk ring road. Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko made the relevant statements during the ceremony held on 6 October to open a new section of the second Minsk ring road, BelTA has learned.

According to Alexander Lukashenko, housing density may be increased in some places in Minsk, yet the practice should be discouraged. “Don’t build homes too densely in Minsk. People are already complaining. There are a lot of places beyond the ring road where homes and other facilities can be built such as Zaslavl, Rudensk, Fanipol, Dzerzhinsk,” pointed out the President.

At the same time it is necessary to improve the transportation system by adding railroads to motorways, said the head of state. “It would be convenient and we will avoid Minsk’s oversaturation,” said Alexander Lukashenko. Once again he reiterated that housing construction in Minsk must be minimized. “There is no need for everyone to live in Minsk. Today Minsk is home to nearly two million people, one fifth of the nation. If more people come to live in Minsk, the place will be packed as tight as Moscow,” warned Alexander Lukashenko.
