Bucharest mayor vows to buy 20 snow melting machines this winter
Bucharest general mayor, Gabriela Firea, has announced on Monday that the city hall is buying 20 snow melting machines, with the devices to be delivered this winter. “Acquisition procedure is under way. We will have 20 snow melting machines this winter,” Firea said.
Firea had announced she would like to buy the machines since last winter. Her statement came amid row over the snow piles measuring one-two metres high drifting on the Capital’s footways and parking lots. Motor trucks for refuse collection could hardly cope with the large amounts of snow, which resulted in an extremely small amount of snow being taken over on the greenfield outside Bucharest.
