The Novosibirsk metro is awaiting change, the management has refused to cooperate with the Vagonmash plant, the new business partner will be the St. Petersburg October Electric Car Repair Plant, and it will be the equipment they buy from them.
The legendary Novosibirsk metro, began to be erected on May 12, 1979, on this spring day a large metal pile was solemnly hammered, it was hammered at the station, which was later called “October”. In the same revenge, the first pits were made to develop a pit, and then the construction of the stage between the Oktyabrskaya station and Lenin Square began. At the same time, work was also being carried out on the left bank, metro builders were erecting the Studencheskaya station.
It took a long 7 years, and on January 7, 1986, the subway was inaugurated, the first passengers had the opportunity to travel a section 8.5 km long, several stations were at their service. Including the world’s longest metro bridge over the Ob River. Another 2 years have passed since that time, Sibirskaya and Garina-Mikhailovsky Square stations were also commissioned. In the 90s, the metro due to a deep crisis, construction work froze for a long time. Only in 2000 there was an opportunity to introduce a new station – “Marshal Pokryshkin”. After 5 years, the Birch Grove station was commissioned, and after another 5 years, the Zolotaya Niva station.
Now there are plans to continue the Lenin line, after a while the station “Stanislavsky Square” should appear. The Dzerzhinsky line will be replenished with stations by the Molodezhnaya station; a corresponding project already exists. Between the planned station, the section to the Golden Niva will be made in the form of a covered flyover. The unstable financial situation does not make it possible to clearly indicate the deadlines for the completion of facilities.
The indicators of the first half of 2012 showed that the metro carries 214 thousand passengers in one day. If we take all types of municipal transport, the proportion of subway traffic will be 42.8%. In fact, half of the passengers prefer the subway.
The most urgent task of the Novosibirsk Metro today is the overhaul of fifty cars, in 2013 comes the final operating life for mileage. Therefore, repairs are needed, in the near future it is necessary to build repair shops, their cost will be 167 million rubles. The metro repair base will make it possible to reduce the cost of wagon repairs, repair of rolling stock outside the city, at the factories of Moscow and St. Petersburg is expensive.
Recently, there has been a tendency to increase passengers, this determines the importance of the upcoming repair work on the restoration of cars. But this will not solve all the problems, the subway must acquire new units of rolling stock. The 2013 Metro Guide set the following tasks:
– Ensure the necessary volumes of traffic, while ensuring proper traffic safety. Maintain a high level of service culture.
– Overhaul a number of cars.
– Perform the necessary work on the construction of repair shops.
The State Duma of the Russian Federation earlier passed a law according to which from January 1, 2013 it will be possible to sell alcoholic beverages, including beer, only in stationary retail outlets. Kiosks will be outlawed. Alcohol has always belonged to a liquid group of goods, which means that owners of retail stalls will be left without a significant portion of revenue.
Following this, the Russian Ministry of Health created a bill that will limit the trade in tobacco products. Only retail outlets with an area of more than 50 square meters can sell cigarettes. m, there will be installed special closed counters. At the moment, the proposed Draft Bill has not yet been adopted by the State Duma, because it was sent for revision, many believe that it is just a matter of time, it will be adopted.
Small business, therefore, will be deprived of the right to sell liquid alcohol and cigarettes throughout Russia. This injustice has led to the creation of the Kiosk Coalition. There are also centers of protest in Novosibirsk. The ban on the sale of alcoholic drinks and cigarettes will contribute to the fact that 80% of their usual revenue will go from small businesses, therefore, many will be on the brink of ruin. Tax revenues will be reduced, many people will be left without work. According to conservative estimates of the coalition in Novosibirsk, with the entry into force of the above laws, several thousand people will be left without work.
The “Kiosk Coalition” began active when the owners of the stalls organized and held a rally on May 1, 2012. The outrage was that all the bans concerned only small businesses, larger retail outlets should not suffer from innovations. Mikhail Epishkin, who is also the regional coordinator, says that the main thing is to attract the attention of the authorities, only then will it be possible to establish a dialogue with the authorities.
The rally alone is not able to solve the problem, so it will not be limited to it. In addition, back in May, owners posted lightboxes screaming about “discrimination against small businesses” at retail outlets. Further, at the end of June, lightboxes became insufficient, large banners appeared near the stalls. The inscription reads: “We are for the equal rights of small outlets and large supermarkets.” However, entrepreneurs argue that it is still necessary to regulate the sale of alcohol and tobacco at the state level, but this should be civilized and fair.
The authorities of Novosibirsk declare that it is open for dialogue, they are ready to talk with entrepreneurs about reprofiling the assortment. Deputy Nikolai Surkov believes that the regional Legislative Assembly is a very open structure, ready to discuss all possible solutions to the problem. The authorities do not consider the problem that kiosks will be massively closed, employment centers, according to officials, will gladly accept everyone. Re-profiling is also actually impossible; legislative barriers prevent it. One of these is the ban on the sale of milk related to sanitary standards. The market for other products is very crowded, it is already occupied.

How to choose office furniture
Furniture stores offer many office furniture options from different manufacturers. High-quality office furniture must meet a number of requirements. It should be practical, reliable, comfortable, ergonomic. The design must match the layout of the office space. At the same time, furniture consisting of different modules and elements is preferable, which will allow it to be built into any room. You never know, suddenly your company decides to move to another office.
In addition to workplaces, the office should have all the furniture items necessary for organizing the workflow and the comfort of employees and customers: convenient places for visitors, a negotiation table, a table for office equipment, cabinets for documents, outerwear, etc.
If the room has some non-standard shape, you can pick up or order office furniture with asymmetric and curved surfaces and structures. This will allow more efficient use of office space.
In addition, office furniture must necessarily correspond to the image of the company. If this is a design studio, then the furniture in it may be of a more unusual shape and bright colors compared, for example, with furniture in a law firm.
Office furniture should create a working atmosphere. Also, it should look aesthetically pleasing and decorate the interior of the room as a whole.
