Examination: Moscow is Paved with Poor-Quality Tiles

From 70 to 80 per cent of paving tiles laid in the center of Moscow in 2011, have turned to be of low quality, a commission of experts states. In cold weather such tiles get coated with ice, which is cleaned off worse than from asphalt.
      Officials recognize that the problem exists, but say that examination was held when “the tiles hadn't yet developed durability” and by now contractors have liquidated all the drawbacks. In spring 2011 the Moscow mayor Sergey Sobyanin ordered to replace the asphalt covering of sidewalks with tiles, explaining his decision with the remark that asphalt melts in summer. Besides, paving tiles serve several times longer than asphalt.
      Till autumn works were carried out in Moscow. It was planned that the new pavement would appear on sidewalks with the overall area of about 1 million sq. m, but in fact only 470 thousand sq. m have been paved with tiles – mostly within the Garden Ring in the centre of Moscow.
