The first batch of lighting fixtures will be received this week. The work is finishing on the territory of the local council “Aviation”, this is the very centre of the city. Starting next week, we will start installing lighting fixtures on the territory of the local council “Raduzhny” and “Oktyabrsky”, noted Sergey Serov, the foreman of a crew for operation of distribution grids of the Sharyinsky Distribution Zone. In order to fulfill the contractual obligations under the agreement on time, the specialists work very intensively.
