YEREVAN'S MUNICIPALITY CONCERNED OVER STATE OF ELEVATORS IN THE CAPITAL


YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 21. ARMINFO. Yerevan's Municipality is going to
order Moscow elevators for the capital, says vice mayor of Yerevan
Vano Vardanyan.

Vardanyan says that most of Yerevan's elevators need repairing or
replacement. The volume of the purchase will depend on finanicing -
now the municipality is negotiating for importing spare parts only. Of
4,150 elevators in Yerevan 542 ones are inoperative.

The only elevator plant in Armenia was destroyed by the Spitak
earthquake in 1988. It has been much talked of building a new plant
since then but no money has ever been obtained for the purpose. There
have already been some elevator accidents in Yerevan.
