trucks overloaded with timber cut off the village of Pichtovka from civilization




In the Novosibirsk region, residents of many villages in the Kolyvansky region are in danger of being left without regular contact with the regional center. On the dirt road Pikhtovka – Kolyvan began to move trucks loaded with logs, which literally destroy the road. TUAD applied to the regional prosecutor’s office.

From the village of Pikhtovka, in the Kolyvansky area and many nearby villages, you can only leave with two roads. One leads to the Tomsk region, but along the second you can quickly reach the regional center in the Novosibirsk region – the working settlement of Kolivan and then to Novosibirsk itself. However, this road is getting worse every day.

The 63 km road to Pichtovka is a dirt road. Until recently it was relatively flat – so say the drivers. Anastasia Varligina regularly travels to Pichtovka for work. The woman admits that in 2021, the road was in good condition. The problems started with the onset of hot weather in 2022.

“At the end of March and the beginning of April, when the snow melted, the road was very good, it was constantly graded. Since October, TUAD has been doing it all the time, including winter, it was a shame to watch them freeze, says Anastasia. – The road began to deteriorate when timber trucks were launched along it, around mid-April. At this time, the road should be closed to trucks, as the area is very swampy and you can fail in zero time, something they did. Well, imagine a timber truck with two loaded timber trailers. And not one lumberjack, but one after the other non-stop.

Now loaded trucks are literally going underground. The road became impassable.

“Usually, there are several cars passing here, as there are more than one or two villages in this direction. They bring bread, goods to the shops there, the people themselves go to the area for shopping, to the hospital and someone goes to visit relatives, life is in full swing in our area. But there is no road anymore: a passenger car will not pass, they will soon stop carrying bread, and no one cares about it. Anastasia is complaining.

The Regional Highway Administration appealed to the Prosecutor’s Office of the Novosibirsk Region and asked for help in maintaining the road and protecting it from damage by heavy trucks.

“The Kolyvan – Pikhtovka regional highway was destroyed by heavy vehicles transporting timber. Residents of the settlements are complaining about its condition, the traffic is deteriorating after the bad weather, – mentionted Sibkrai.ru in TUAD. – Under the federal law on municipal control, the control of the activities of companies operating in the territory of the region is carried out by the regional administration. The management can control the company – with what weight and load it releases cars on the roads. “If the company is not registered in the region, the regional administration must also take measures to protect its roads.”

The department added that contractors regularly grade and repair the road. However, due to the transit of trucks this year, numerous damages were recorded in those parts that were repaired at the end of last year.

Next week, a meeting will be held with the head of the Kolyvan region on the condition and operation of the Kolyvan-Pikhtovka motorway with the participation of TUAD, the supervisory and regulatory authorities.», – the administration of the Kolyvansky region reported numerous complaints from residents of the area.

BUT Sibkrai.ru sent a request to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Novosibirsk Oblast to find out if logging near the village of Pikhtovka, in the Kolyvansky district, is legal and who is involved in the removal of logs and the destruction of the road.
