Lukashenko orders faulty bridge in Gomel Oblast replaced

MINSK, 1 March (BelTA) – Belarus President  Alexander Lukashenko ordered a new bridge to be built between Zhitkovichi and Turov this year. The head of state set forth this task during a working meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Mikhail Rusy, BelTA has learned.

According to the head of state, he often visits this region. “People understand that anything can happen. But they should not be affected by this problem. We need to arrange the transportation to Turov, Zhitkovichi. We need to do everything so that people can move across the river, at least the ones who need to get to the places of their work. The bridge must be fixed within the year,” the president said.

The president said that he intends to visit the district in the spring and monitor how this issue is being addressed. “I do not want the people to complain saying that we are not dealing with this problem. I have the matter under control. But this is the place where you hail from, and in the Year of Native land you must not turn away from this,” the president said.

The head of state also instructed to check other similar bridges in the country. “We cannot wait until another bridge breaks. We need to reinforce these bridges, put up additional support. It is inadmissible to restrict the movement, or close those bridges making people travel round some 300km and more,” the president said.
