What do you think? say
Metrostroevtsy invited correspondent "Today" to guests - a 50-meter vertical shaft of the future metro station "Ploshchad Lenina". While down in a special unit down, accustomed to work underground sinker grimly told that it is through this vertical shaft, in the case flooding of the tunnel, the water will pour out on the center of Dnepropetrovsk. One has only to two days off pumps - and trouble is inevitable. Indeed, on this site is the powerful water influx - 140 cubic meters per hour. Now stop construction finance, and the water pump is necessary. "We are actually in debt pumping water from the tunnels ", - complains the chief engineer" Dneprometrostroya " Alexander Kasyanchuk, and adds that if you stop the pump at least 4:00, groundwater and underground rivers fill flash driven tunnels, then pour out the underwater lake outside. Found only underground several workers. It turned out that the team was divided into three parts. People out in three shifts. Many people are under the ground now do not need. "We face practically empty, - says head of personnel Tamara Pokhilko - all Metrostroj were 500 people, but now it remains 230, and then - half of them went to the free vacation. " Despite the lack of work and wages, people are under the ground around the clock. Each shift lasts 8 Underground hours. "There's even pretty comfortable - 15 degrees, compared with the heat on the surface - the beauty - smiling metrostroevtsy - in winter, maybe a couple of degrees lower. " But it turned out that this is almost the only positive moment in their work. "Six months have not seen wage" - says 57-year-old Brigadier Alex Shishkov. "I work here since 1984 - can not remember anything like it! This is not live, and gets out - my wife works in the same subway employee, on its payroll in 1200 hryvnia and live. Son studies at the University of the third course, well, that the budget has got "- annoyed foreman. According to him, find a new job in 57 years just is not realistic. "I have 30 years of working under land, - says Alexey Shishkov - and I can not imagine that somewhere else You can work with. " The youngest metrostroevets, 32-year-old Michael Minakov - Sinker in the third generation. "My father and grandfather I have the miners. Second year working here. There is a 13-year-old daughter and the family includes his wife - she has a small business - and survive. " When Michael came to build the subway, pay here 3 to 4 thousand hryvnia at the local level is considered high enough earnings. A year ago, a young and sinker could not assume that it will soon it is not what to buy bread. Now workers at lunchtime divided together with food and cigarettes. By the way, prefer those that are stronger. "Tormozok" work brings one who can, to some it is sometimes There is simply no money. Metrostroevtsy lunch there and then, under the ground, especially in designated corner. "It's a shame that all this happens with highly specialists. I have them in their time throughout the Soviet Union gathered, - the chief HR Tamara Pokhilko - looking for the miners - not from the street is to take them! ". In the subway, she said, there were many people, after all the work, although dangerous and responsible, but less harmful than the miner. "There is no dust and methane. A Now that I have not done - no one is here to work, everyone knows that Metro is our wages and no "- Tamara Pokhil'ko laments. 'Kindly quiet word "here and remember those in power - from the prime minister to the mayor. "After Tymoshenko would be here. Let's see how we work here! - Says Michael Minakov. - Here, in an emergency water pumping hours so that the pumps are off. Then we leave the wet, as the mouse! And we just keep the fools! The mayor only and knows that the fountains every year to open. Added onto subway would be better - people life you will remember! ". The correspondent of "Today" personally convinced that the ground water flowing down the walls, quickly fill tunnel. On the tour, turn off all pumps metrostroevtsy because when they work in the tunnel because of the terrible roar heard nothing. Idle in the mine is boring and the Finnish plant - the last time it ran in April. Miners were the last hope of Euro 2012, but after Dnipropetrovsk has lost the right to take evrochempionat optimism drifters dried up. Pessimistic and director of "Dneprometrostroya" Basil Savchenko. "There remains a handful of enthusiasts. They have no weekends, no holidays. And get down into the ground the other drifters I have no moral of law. " PROUD TO SMALL. "While we are proud of the shortest subway in the world "- the workers say. Although, according to the head "Dneprmetrostroya" Basil Savchenko, that we have the most difficult to dig tunnels, since the sites are found up to 6 different breeds, but mostly granite. In the vast CIS with such podlyankoy found only metrostroevtsy Ural Ekaterinburg. Every species must take a different technique. Finnish machine "Tamrok," which blow up granite, purchased back in 1988 (now the car is worth 200-250 thousand dollars), and then went almost hand - using drills.
