The Winter Service of Zagreb's branch office is in the state of maximum preparedness today. Given that the rains started in the morning, around the 10h out, all the teams were in charge of the road and the streets of the first level of advantage.
It is active for all 259 Winter Service teams that are deployed on the 15 base in Zagreb. There are 5 teams on Sljeme where everything is done so that the road is constantly in transit and that the citizens can pass without difficulty. Also, during the past few nights salt has been sown on critical sites (bridges, overpasses, hillside) to prevent the possibility of creating a pole.
At present, all streets and roads in the city are passable and sprinkled with salt, but according to the needs, the number of field teams will increase and the continuity of the pitch will increase. Please note that the Zagreb Road currently stocked with 18 000 t salts and 2 500 t is stored, but extra stocks of strategic reserves will be withdrawn if needed.
We ask all citizens to respect the winter conditions on the roads and if need be through the form on the web site of Zagreb Roads (www.zgceste.hr) inform about the contacts of the Base which is in charge of their street. Also, all information can be obtained via the Call Center of Zagreb Holding Ltd. on the phone number 072 500 400.
Cleaning snow and ice from the sidewalks
According to the Decree on the communal order to remove snow and ice from the sidewalk to the building are responsible co-owners, and in front of the street shops it should be made by the owners or users.
Snow clearance is organized within the building and the representative of the co-owner is obliged to indicate the schedule of clearing on the notice board and also to notify the Municipal Directorate, which is responsible for controlling the implementation of the Decision and charging the penalty. Additionally, in the event of an injury, the injured person may directly claim from the co-owner a claim for damages.
In addition to cleaning around the building, co-owners are also tasked with removing snow and ice from the roofs. While most often not defined by the management contract, this job can also be done by the manager on their behalf by engaging the trader with the appropriate equipment. As buildings under GSKG are secured against liability to third parties (but not to co-owners), in the event of damage or damage to snow / ice from the roof, the injured party is directly addressing the insurer (and not the manager). Thus, such compensation is not paid out of the reserve but the claimant directly deals with the insurance company
