Kištu-1985 (After the communism) - Slight changes



Hello there, after 2 years.

During this time the city has changed, but it can not be said that that are strong changes. Let me start with the fact that after my last post, in the country, as well as in the whole city, there was a giant wave of decommunization. In the city were renamed approximately 500 objects: streets, squares, boulevards, avenues, schools, hospitals, tram stations and much more. On Lenin Square (Lėnina placa), which now bears the name of the Housing Square (Namiu placa), the monument to V.Lenin was demolished.

Then, at the end of 1983 Dzingalian government decided to make an agricultural development program for 1984 and decided to start from the cities. Kištu got into this program. Now 38.9 thousand of people work in the agricultural sector all over the city, when before this programm this value was hardly equal to a only thousand. In addition, new roads and overpasses have been built for the needs of the working people.

This is a satellite snapshot of the city and its suburbs:


And this is a map of the city's road infrastructure:


Here, all the changes were recorded for 1983-1984. It is noteworthy that the images (taken in May 1984) are completely relevant so far even for now, November 1985. This is because by 1985 the city decided not to include in the program of agricultural development due to the lowest unemployment percent in the country. Also, by the same reason, the city was excluded from the program of industrial development in 1985. The city is very lack of manpower.

Therefore, representatives from this city were promoting the launch of the mass housing program for 1986. And recently, on September 25, preparations began for the introduction of the 1986 housing program. For these needs on October 29, was developed the first own project of a series of houses for mass construction, named NM-1 (yyeeah, exactly this). But for now this is all that is known about housing plans.

As for many things in the city, nothing has changed in these 2 years. The same can be judged by the two schemes of the city tram: one made almost immediately after the country gained independence:


the other was made in the same year, 1985, in the summer.

Cool entry, the satellite image looks impressively real!!

BTW, the CJ formatte is the right one for this; you could show a tease on the forums to attract people to visit this, though...
