The Minsk Ring Road and the roadside area should be developed more actively, Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko said as he studied the development plan of the area adjoining Minsk on 24 May, BelTA has learned.

“I have said many times what I would like to see along these roads. However, the work is making little headway. I do not see this work at some sections, because I do not visit all the places. Today I want to be very specific about the way the road and the roadside area should be,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The head of state explained that he pays much attention to renovation of roads and development of roadside infrastructure, because this shapes the country's image. “I often criticize you for the roads, for the order and other things that have to do with our nature. Why roads and primarily the First Ring Road? Because this is the face of Minsk. Minsk is the face of the country. Foreigners often use these roads. Many visitors will come here soon for the European Games. But it is not only about that. Time has come to scale up this work,” he said.

Aleksandr Lukashenko was briefed on progress in fulfilling his instructions to maintain good order of the Minsk Ring Road and road interchanges near Minsk, in landscaping and development of the areas adjoining the Minsk Ring Road. The president saw passenger vehicles to be in operation during the European Games, including MAZ and Neman buses and Geely Atlas cars. About 320 Belarusian crossovers will be used to provide taxi services to high-ranking officials during the games. After the games, the vehicles will be distributed among government agencies and local authorities, Minsk Mayor Anatoly Sivak said.

Speaking with drivers, the head of state noted that he likes Geely Atlas. “A decent car,” the president said. He added that it is time to promote production of electric cars. After that, Aleksandr Lukashenko toured the ring road on board a bus.
