Norilsk lawns laid out in streets center

Lawns in our city play the role not only of green spaces and dividing lanes for vehicles. They also mask sewers.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Since, according to the specialists’ calculations, communication channels should be removed as far as possible from the buildings’ foundations so that the soil under them does not melt, they were laid on a green strip in the middle of the street.

Specialists were struggling over the problem of how to properly equip collectors in the Arctic for years. They tried to bury pipes in the ground but they sank in the melted slurry so deep that they could not be found.

The exit was found in two-tier underground well-insulated sewers. The first such collector with a lawn on top was laid on Sevastopolskaya street.

On Leninsky prospect, the dividing green stripes were so wide that, in addition to bushes and grasses, walking paths and benches were also placed on them. Later, the lawns on Leninsky were greatly narrowed in order to widen the roadway.

In the History Spot photo project’s previous publication, we told that a heliport operated in Norilsk in the mid-1960s.
