The construction company “Astrakhan Avtomost” is trying through the court to recognize the termination of the contract with him as illegal. Earlier, this company began a major overhaul of the Police Bridge.
Work on the bridge began in 2019, the work was noticeably behind schedule, and bankruptcy proceedings were introduced against the company. In addition, due to the poor condition of the facility, traffic on the bridge had to be blocked, which led to transport problems for the residents of Zatsarevye, local news agencies write.
In March this year, the head of the Astrakhan region initiated the termination of the contract with the contractor unilaterally. The company’s executives disagree with this decision and dispute it in an arbitration court, demanding almost 17 million rubles from the city’s capital construction department.
