Zhechpospolita, news from the country and the wurld


The Karlich Courier (Kurier Karlitski) was founded in 1903 and is considered to be one of the first major presses in Grenesia. It is a press group that publishes many literary and political titles, including political speeches and poems. It also covers sport, business, and entertainment. Its alignment used to be far-left after communists rose to power in Grenesia in 1921, however now is only left a leaning.

Zhechpospolita is a liberal-conservative economic and legal journal, first issued in 1992. The main edition of Zhechpospolita is divided into four sections: the general news, economic ("Economy and market"), legal ("Law every day") and regional ("Life of Regions"). The subscription to the journal includes "Taxes", "Administration", "Law", "Accountancy", "Work", "Business".

Creating new railway lines and extending existing routes is expected to make people commute to cities more often, and not only will it drive the economic situation in urban areas, but also improve overall quality of life in Grenesia. 

"Rail transport has become crucial for Grenesians, especially in the end of last century, and the number of passengers is still increasing", says Cristoph Pozhogitch, Minister of Infrastructure. However, according to the Public Transport Inspection, the condition of Grenesian State Railways is deplorable - majority of the train fleet is in service since early seventies, departures are always delayed due to unbearable condition of the tracks and wires, and the staff is overworked and underpaid. What's more, many stations, especially in rural areas, were forced to shut down and sell their land to private owners. The demolition of stations and tracks and the division of land on liquidated railway lines means that their reconstruction, if any, would be troublesome, more expensive or even impossible.

The new government project will make it harder for the GSR manager to close down the railway network and encourage to bring back former and maintain current lines. One of the major shortcomings of reducing the length of railway lines in use was depriving sixty one cities of more than ten thousand residents of rail access. Since 1992, the railway grid has shrunk by four thousand kilometers. This means that approximately one-fifth of Grenesia (and its population) was deprived of access to rail transport. These areas now lose their investment or settlement attractiveness, which contributes to their depopulation and economic degradation. 

What is going to change? The government is working on channeling a significant amount of money into the state-owned railway company for new train compositions or maintenance and modernization of existing ones. There are also plans on restructuring the firm and staff exchange inside the company. The project aims to make more railway lines and preserve existing ones, and assumes that the stations will now legally belong to the local governments, so the transport firm will not be able to sell its land by itself. The program also includes a five-year plan of development imposed on Grenesian State Railways.

An overpass collapse near Doboshytse in Pzhypzhesmytska killed two construction workers, a motorist driving beneath it, and left several people injured, officials said.

The victims were two male constructors at the age of 34 and 41 respectively, and a 46-year-old man travelling in a hatchback towards Tsieshytse when the overpass being constructed crashed on top of his car.

The bridge crushed the car on SR-1 highway (commonly referred to as “es-erka”) connecting Sroki with Mnikhovo, and thus being one of the most important Grenesian interurban roads.

It collapsed after a temporary bridge support gave way under it and the structure fell on the road blocking all lanes of the motorway in both directions.

One of the witnesses, who wanted to remain anonymous, said that the overpass went down suddenly. He reported that he managed to stop his car just five meters from the collapsed bridge.

The Grenesian highway services have already put signs marking a detour until the highway is cleaned, which is expected to take at least several weeks.

Grenesian Rails Back On Track

The Grenesian railways have been run inefficiently for more than thirty years, and it's high time local governments received revitalization projects and considerable funding from state budget.

The total expense on the projects included in the National Railway Program exceeds five billion Grenesian plats. The main goals of these projects are to schedule maintenance of functioning railroads, revitalie old infrastructure, improve the quality of passenger rail transport and to increase train access to remote rural areas.

One of the largest ventures in Pzhypzhesmytska, and by far the most expensive included, is the Tsieshytse-Skzhypy project which includes modernization 132 kilometres of tracks, renovation 64 railroad crossings and construction of four new stops.

In Maraska, ten new stops will be built within two years and trains in the Glinsk agglomeration will be able to run more often. The project aims to increase the popularity of rail transit in the region, relieve road traffic and thus make the roadways safer and less congested.

In Zrembsko-Brunitska, the reconstructed Mloty-Zremb-Debina route will re-enable passenger traffic and streamline freight traffic. All of its passenger platforms at nine stations will be back in use and required with benches, lighting, information boards and ramps for the disabled.

Also, a large part of the modernization currently being carried out on railway lines includes freight routes. For example, five neglected long-distance freight lines in the southern part of Grenesia are going to be restored to working condition.

Additionally, Grenesian State Railways are going to open a tender for purchase of eleven new train sets and two used high-speed train compositions. What's more, the Grenesian State Railways will introduce a joint ticket throughout the country and the new tariff will be degressive, which means that the combined route with a shared ticket would pay less than for separate tickets purchased for individual sections.

While the railway network all over Grenesia is being modernized and undergoing major overhaul, passengers are bound to experience significant delays and many routes will have to be detoured. However, once the main construction works are over, a permanent, uniform timetable is promised to be established.

Asbestos removal: eternit for eternity?AdobeStock_9331461-e1578931625352.jpeg

Since June 2003, a 30-year national program for the removal of asbestos and asbestos-containing products has been in force. Despite this, however, there is little significant progress.

Asbestos toxicity has been known for over one hundred years and its import and to Grenesia and circulation on Grenesian market have been forbidden since 1997. However, eternit seems to have lived up to its name - buildings with asbestos insulation and coverings are still in use.

In a report from four years ago the Supreme Audit Office shows that the National Asbestos Removal Program for the years 2010 - 2033 has not fulfilled its role.The removal rate is negligible and the amount of asbestos that is left remains unknown. The Office estimates that, at the current rate, it will take 200 years to eliminate asbestos-containing products.

Local governments have also taken matters in their own hands and deal with the removal of this harmful substance. For example, citizens of Gervazno, Mnikhovo, and Bialy Sad who partake in the local removal program will be fully refunded for the disposal and treatment of items containing carcinogenic material. Appropriate programs are also implemented in Meskov. However, the scale of such operations is often insignificant, as only 1200 square metres of asbestos have been removed in these municipalities.
