Mayor Ivo Nesrovnal today announced at the press conference that they are putting people and equipment in the rain immediately and that the individual coordinators have worked all night. We coordinated the progress of all components and informed the public. The torrential rains hit the Trnavsky toll road. The control mechanisms worked properly and the underpass was upgraded, cleaned and fully functional within two hours, "said Ivo Nesrovnal, Mayor of Bratislava." I want to thank our dispatcher, city policeman, firefighter, DPB and BVS, who have been active all night have solved and helped to cope with the fact that a city now operates without restrictions" the mayor Ivo Nesrovnal has today added to the extraordinary press conference.
"We can not prevent torrential downpours and climate change," said the mayor, "that we can do what we know to prepare the city and its organizations to minimize the damage caused by such heavy rains.
However, the chairman of the board of directors of the Bratislava Water Company Zsolt Lukáč is a long-term problem with bridging roads and subways. It is caused by rainwater running from the Carpathians to Bratislava. Drainage, which is mainly dedicated to sewage, can not absorb it. Unbalanced replied that the city is already implementing water measures, after the juniors began to repair the dirt. "This is of course a huge investment," he said.
Some lines of public transport did not change for Saturday's lunchtime. "Tramauto was completely restored on Saturday at 9.30 pm, trolleybus on Sunday at 9.30 am", said Milan Urban, director general of the transport company in Bratislava. Meanwhile, there was a replacement transport in some places.
Climate change, which is also the result of heavy rainfall, causes enormous problems throughout Europe. After the torrential rains of June 2018, the capital concentrated on the most affected areas, where we cleaned up several channel passes in collaboration with BVS. In 2019 the capital is planning to invest in sewer maintenance and to improve the quality of waste water by more than 1 million. euro.
