YEREVAN, AUGUST 9. ARMINFO. Yerevan authorities need to purchase some
1.730 tons of technical salt and 2,800 cubic meters of sand to get
prepared for winter, Vice Mayor of Yerevan Vano Vardanyan told
journalists today.

He said that by present, the reserves of technical salt in the capital
make up some 127 tons, those of sand – only 10% of the necessary
quantity. Besides, to provide road safety and to clean roads, 231 cars
are requires, but only 203 of them are ready for
exploitation. According to Vardanyan, several communities in Yerevan
are expected to buy new equipment by the end of the year, in

replenishment of salt and sand reserves, he said: “our experience
shows that it is senseless to purchase such a quantity of salt and
sand by the end of the year, as Yerevan has a plant on production of
salt, so the necessary quantity of this product can be bought there if
necessary. The same concerns sand reserves.”
