Muscovites Poll to Decide the Future of Shukhov Tower

Online poll regarding the Shukhov Tower will help Moscow authorities to make decision about the future of the emergency object.

      Muscovites will choose one of the offered options: to strengthen the tower construction and announce a competition on the restoration project and further exploitation of the tower; to dismantle, restore and set up the tower in another place; to dismantle, restore and set up the tower in its historical place near the Shabolovka Street or suggest their own option for saving the Shukhov Tower.

      Taking into account the poll results the Moscow cultural heritage department will decide the further actions for restoring the tower. The poll will last till July 6.

      The Shukhov Tower, which was the centre for TV broadcasting from 1938, is no longer in use. Presently the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications and the Russian television and broadcasting network consider the plans of moving the tower to another place.

      Meanwhile the Culture Ministry stands up against dismantling and moving the Shukhov Tower, which will be equivalent to destructing the monument, in their opinion.
