Some 3 million cubic meters of snow were evacuated from city streets this winter, which is twice as much as last year. The current main problem is to finish up cleaning the streets of snow and ice. This work is expected to be completed by early April. On April 1st the necessary equipment must be ready to begin cleaning the city streets.
