Tell a few words about yourself, if you can. What works do you execute at the site?

Young people work under your direction. How do they manage their work?
They do their best. A great deal depends on how the subbase will be laid. Not only the overall quality of the road will depend on it, but also if it will be easy or, on the contrary, there will be large problems in their further work. Therefore, one has to watch especially those, who executes this work, and lay strict claims for them. Only those, who have large experience, operate this equipment. There is no idle road equipment, everything is involved. There is sufficient number of specialists there.
Here, at the moment, as we can watch with you, the rolled road, for some reason, is being dismantling, broken. Is it connected with the committed defect?
Yes, there is such sort of thing. Exactly, a small defect has been discovered in this place, in the subbase, therefore, cutting of it is being made. Then it will be rolled again. Today we use all the available opportunities, first, weather conditions, which allow performing arrangement of asphalt concrete.
You have a very large experience in highway branch. Perhaps, you used to deal with various technologies. It was of one type in the 70s, somewhat another in 90s. What can you tell about modern, the latest technology?
You took notice right. There are differences in them, and very large at that. First, it is appropriate to mention special equipment, which we operate today. Operating it or working on it, we actually do not have losses of the building materials, their overrun.
