The prosecutor of the Oryol region Vladislav Malkin instructed his subordinates to check the legality of spending budget funds during the reconstruction of the Red Bridge in the regional capital, the prosecutor’s office said.
With the company “Remspetsmost” was concluded for 1.41 billion rubles, writes IA “Abireg”. Following the visit to the facility and communication with the contractor, Vladislav Malkin instructed to give a legal assessment of the actions or inaction of the customer, contractor, designer, as well as the specialized department of the region. Currently, two criminal cases related to the Red Bridge are being investigated. We are talking about cases on the fact of injuries by minors during the dismantling of tram rails and on the fact of using forged documents when concluding a contract.
In April, the repair of the Red Bridge was suspended, as it was revealed that the work did not correspond to the design solution. The actual thickness of the retaining walls turned out to be greater than the dimensions that were indicated in the project. The design institute, together with the contractor and the customer, is working on additions to the project in order to re-evaluate the changes made to the design documentation.
The repair of the Red Bridge began in February 2021. Completion of work is scheduled for November 18, 2022.
