In the khutor (a small village) of Mars of Podgorensky District, the road will be paved for the first time. Over 44.1 million rubles have been allocated for the works. This was reported to the RIA Voronezh correspondent by the Head of the Pervomaysky Rural Settlement Iraida Belodedova on Thursday, June 18.

The road workers started working on June 1: they made the markings and delivered the materials. The length of the asphalt road is over 1.7 km. A part of the road leading to Dachnaya Street will be covered with rubble at the expense of the road fund of the rural settlement.

“There has never been a good road to the khutor of Mars,” said Iraida Belodedova. “This is a road of municipal significance. The khutor is essentially a country house village, there are three people registered in it right now. Previously, summer residents had to get to their lots along a dirt road. When a plant nursery was built in the khutor, the need arose for the capital construction of an asphalt road.”

The works are planned to be completed by November 1. The construction is carried out as part of the implementation of the “Development of Rural Territories” state program of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation and the “Development of Agriculture, Food Products and the Infrastructure of the Agricultural Food Market for 2020” state program of the Voronezh Region. More than 42.7 million rubles have been allocated from the federal budget and more than 1.3 million rubles have been allocated from the local budget and agricultural enterprises.
