Moscow authorities have increased the number of employees clearing snow from the metro

MOSCOW, February 13 – RIA Novosti. More than three thousand people remove snow near the metro stations of Moscow and the MCC, according to the Moscow Department of Transport.

“We are continuing to clear the approaches to metro stations and the MCC. Taking into account the strengthening, more than 3 thousand people are involved in snow removal right now! And everything so that our favorite metro remains accessible and comfortable for you,” the department said in a Telegram -canal. Infographics Moscow is one of the snowiest cities in the world. This causes a lot of inconvenience to residents. About how the city fights snow – in the special project Ria.ru.

It is added that more than 30 thousand cubic meters of snow were removed from the park tracks of the depot per day.

Record snowfalls began in Moscow on Friday night, by morning the capital was mired in traffic jams. Aleksandr Sinenkov, a leading employee of the Phobos weather center, told RIA Novosti that heavy snowfall, blizzard and gusty winds are expected in Moscow on Friday. He clarified that the snowfall will continue on Saturday night and partly on Saturday afternoon.

Also, the leading expert of the Phobos weather center, Mikhail Leus, told RIA Novosti that the height of the snow cover in Moscow could break the record in 1956, now it is 56 centimeters. The challenge is accepted: what a full cycle of snow management looks like in MoscowМосковские власти увеличили число сотрудников, расчищающих снег у метро 1 of 8

City utilities are preparing for winter long before snowfalls, literally “changing shoes” for special equipment. With the onset of freezing temperatures, seasonal attachments are changed on water washers and sweepers, installing new brushes and scrapers.

At the first frost, preventive treatment of roads and sidewalks with deicing materials begins. This prudence allows you to prevent the formation of the so-called black ice – a thin slippery crust invisible to the eye.

At the same time, it is important to emphasize that Moscow roads and streets have not been treated with sand for a long time, since it, entering the storm drain along with snow and ice, settles in storm water wells, which can lead to flooding.

Instead of sand, Moscow utilities use liquid, solid and combined deicing materials (PGM), which are carefully checked for compliance with safety and environmental requirements. Liquid and combined PHM are based on potassium chloride and sodium, in other words, salt. Hard PGMs are ordinary granite chips.

If the snowfall is heavy, then urban utilities prioritize cleaning the busiest central streets, transport hubs, as well as entrances to vital and social facilities.

Cleaning of yards can also begin during a snowfall, but snow is swept from the roofs within two to three days after the end of the disaster. Moreover, first of all, they clean the roofs of those objects that overlook the road network, sidewalk, pedestrian zone, playground or other places with high traffic.

As a rule, snow is not removed from flat roofs – they are cleaned only in emergencies or when urgent repairs are required. The same applies to soft roofs: gutters, outdoor gutters, balconies and canopies are cleaned on such objects.

From the roadway and pedestrian areas, snow is shoveled into the trough area, from where it is then loaded onto dump trucks.

The next stage of the “life” of snow takes place at the snow-rafting station. There, the snow is first driven through “crushers” for faster melting, and then melted in receiving chambers with wastewater. The resulting melt water is sent to the treatment plant, undergoing a full cycle of mechanical and biological treatment. Then it is then released into natural sources.

Such a snow disposal system was put into operation in 2002. Before that, sediments were stored on the roadside or dumped into the river. The current methodology has automated the process and reduced the damage to the ecology of the city.
