In recent days, the workers of municipal corporation "Kyivavtodor" used a record 3.3 thousand tons of sand-salt mixture and more than 1,000 tons of salt for such short period of time.
Now due to the low temperature processing of the road network is carried out with a mixture of sand and salt, because salt is not effective enough at such temperatures.
258 units of "Kyivavtodor" equipment are involved in cleaning streets and yards as well as about 300 vehicles of housing organizations and other institutions. In addition, manual cleaning brigades composed of 355 people are cleaning public transport stops, areas near the underground and surface pedestrian crossings, stairs and sidewalks.
Initially, main streets and roads were processed with the sprinkled material and cleared of snow.
The department noted that 563 pieces of equipment can be brought for street cleaning if necessary. Specifically, 318 snowplows units of "Kyivavtodor", 15 multifunctional units of equipment (salt strewing) from Germany, 47 assistive units, 183 units of third-party organizations.
