a city within the jurisdiction of the Irkutsk Oblast, RSFSR, situated at the junction of the Kitoi and Angara rivers, 50 km northwest of Irkutsk. Has a railroad station on the Trans-Siberian Railway and a population of 190,000 (1969; 90,200 in 1956). Angarsk is one of the largest centers of the Irkutsk-Cheremkhovo industrial region. In 1954 a large-scale chemical and oil combine began production of oil products, mineral fertilizers, household chemical products, and other items. (The oil is transported by a pipeline from Bashkiriia and Tatariia.) The production of plastics is being inaugurated. Such construction materials as prefabricated ferro concrete, cement, and ceramics are manufactured. There is an electromechanical plant, woodworking enterprises, a clothing factory, and a meat-packing plant. Angarsk has a branch of the Irkutsk Polytechnical Institute, a polytechnicum, an evening technicum for light industry, and a medical school. The construction of Angarsk began in 1948 near the settlement of Kitoi; it became a city in 1951. It consists of the industrial part and the residential part, which are separated from each other by a strip of woods. At the basis of the general plan for the residential area (1950, architect E. Ia. Vitenberg and others) is a regular, rectilinear network of streets dividing Angarsk into blocks that are built up according to standard designs. Lenin Square is situated at the intersection of the main streets. The Palace of Culture (1955) and the House of Communications (1950’s), both designed by A. I. Tarantul and others, and the monument to V. I. Lenin (1961), sculpted by V. I. Ingal, are located on the square. Since 1960, construction has been taking place in the southwest part of the city. There are plans to build a social center on the Kitoi River. In the course of construction, large tracts of pine forest are being preserved and deciduous trees are being planted.
