Kostylevsky said that during a snowfall, the laying of asphalt concrete is “of course not allowed,” and that the objects that were named in the media will be checked.
“We will certainly check all the physical and chemical parameters of asphalt concrete in the laboratory with passion. If the quality is not met, accordingly, the facilities will not be commissioned,” the minister said.

Do it immediately today. Warn everyone with an information letter – under what conditions and what technologies it is unacceptable to use, “Travnikov said.
