The Amur region is preparing for the spring flood. Road services have begun cleaning riverbeds and culverts from snow, ice and foreign objects. These measures, tailored to local hydrological and meteorological conditions, will help prevent flooding of roads and bridges during floods.
– For sections of the highways that fall into the flooding zone, specialists from the Ministry of Transport have developed schemes for bypass roads in case of emergency work. Mobile teams will be on duty around the clock. Transport communication during the spring flood is under special control. It is necessary to reduce the inconvenience for residents to a minimum, – emphasized the governor of the Amur Region Vasily Orlov .
Now the flood situation in the region remains stable. Specialists and specialized services monitor the water level in the rivers of the Amur region.
– The flood passes differently every year, we annually determine the risk zones – the territories that are most prone to flooding, and monitor these areas, – said the Minister of Transport of the region Alexander Zelenin . – Monitoring of potentially dangerous low-water artificial structures has now been established.
Specialists took special control of roads located near reservoirs and dams in the Ivanovsky, Zavitinsky, Bureysky, Konstantinovsky, Mikhailovsky, Romny and Oktyabrsky districts. In addition, last year, high water often flooded the roads of the Zeya and Arkharinsky
