The villagers Suranova in Kuzbass can’t drive from the administrative center — the city of Tayga — and are forced to carry on the train or avtosalone body dead relatives to examination in the mortuary within 50 miles, writes “Sibgeo”.
Connecting village and city dirt track in the summer is always blurred by rain, and in winter covered with snow. The villagers repeatedly asked the officials to put the asphalt, but had always refused them. In the village lives only 200 people, most of whom are retired, and build an independent road it turns profitable.
According to a local resident, whose name is not listed, they can’t drive an ambulance and firefighters, nurses and pharmacies in the village. “If someone was bad, we literally sit and pray that people died before will come the nearest train. This is the only transportation that we have,” she said.
The woman noted that recently the Railways have forbidden to transport the dead on the trains. Now people have to contact to order autowegen, to wait at least a day and then repeat the same path back to “military burial”.
Local authorities told residents that the area will soon be a roadway from Taiga to Tomsk, but exactly when is not known.
