Uralkali Completes the Cosy City Programme in Berezniki and Solikamsk


As part of the Cosy City programme implemented by Uralkali (the Company), a new playground was commissioned near House 75 on Dvadtsatiletiya Pobedy Street in Solikamsk. Last summer, the main structural elements were built and the area around the playground was landscaped. This year, safety flooring was installed. 

As part of the programme activities conducted in the summer of 2023, 23 playgrounds and 10 recreational grounds were installed in public spaces and near residential houses. Benches, swings, and litter bins were placed along streets, and new communications routes were constructed including pavements, pathways, stairs, alleys, lawns, and a parking lot. Also, safe access roads were built to nine schools in Berezniki and Solikamsk. In addition to that, CCTV systems were installed at two facilities in Berezniki. 

In 2022, the programme included similar activities like creation of new playground and recreational grounds and beautification of streets, and also provided for installation of new power transmission lines and landscaping of public areas. 

Uralkali allocated RUB 90 million for the implementation of the programme in 2022-2023.
