From Iceland — City Of Reykjavík Spending Big Money On Maintenance

City Of Reykjavík Spending Big Money On Maintenance

Published June 29, 2013

The City of Reykjavík is gearing up to spend big money on improvements around town, sprucing up streets, bike routes, and public spaces before the year is out.
The Environment and Planning Committee issued a letter this week outlining the upgrades to be made throughout the city, including 600 million ISK being spent on road, sidewalks and bike path maintenance, and 155 million ISK to be spent on open spaces, like parks, RÚV reports.
When all is said and done, 1.2 billion ISK will have been spent on maintenance and upgrades throughout the city by the end of 2013.
As the Grapevine previously reported, Reykjavík residents were given the opportunity to vote on improvements they would like to see made to their neighbourhoods back in April when the city ran a website listing all the possible projects to be tackled and the costs thereof.
