“The movement of trucks is prohibited.” Yekaterinburg authorities blocked the largest logopark
The administration of Yekaterinburg, on the instructions of the traffic police, blocked the entrance to the Koltsovsky distribution center. As deputy at the Duma’s safety commission said at a meeting, deputy Vladimir Strugov, the mayor’s office established the sign “no trucks are allowed”.
“There are a number of organizations that annually pay about 5 billion rubles to the budget of the Sverdlovsk region. The question arises about the adequacy of this measure, because this sign calls into question the whole meaning of the logopark, ”he said.
According to the head of the city department of the traffic police Vadim Buydalin, the reason for the installation of the sign was a violation of safety standards, as well as frequent visits by senior officials to Yekaterinburg.
“The entrance to this logopark is located in the direction of movement of specially protected persons, therefore there are special security requirements. They exceed ordinary ones, ”he specified. Mr. Buydalin noted that the owner and residents of the park have repeatedly explained that for the functioning of the site it is necessary to design a separate entrance from Chernikhovsky Street. “The Siberian highway is not intended for parking or for the movement of heavy vehicles,” added Vadim Buydalin.
The Koltsovsky Logopark is located at the intersection of the Koltsovsky and Siberian tracts. The territory planning project was approved in 2016, construction began in 2017. The first phase was commissioned in 2019. Until 2025, it is planned to build the second stage. Among the residents of the logopark are the X5 Retail Group and the SMAK bakery. Logopark includes 400 thousand square meters. m
