MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The main work is scheduled to be completed by September.
In the districts of Zamoskvorechye and Yakimanka, work began on the comprehensive improvement of Sofiyskaya, Raushskaya, Kosmodamianskaya embankments, as well as Faleevsky lane and Repinsky square. A little earlier they started on Sadovnicheskaya embankment, Sadovnicheskaya street and two Raushskiye lanes.
“Improvement is carried out within the framework of a unified concept for the transformation of the capital’s embankments, the purpose of which is to make the territory near the water comfortable and functional,” stressed
Peter Biryukov… – Since 2011, 32 embankments with a total length of about 60 kilometers have been repaired. In the historical part of the city, a single comfortable walking route has been created along the embankments from the center of Moscow City to Taganskaya Square. ”
According to him, one of the features of the project being implemented is the idea of dividing the space into historical (along the line of houses) and modern (near the water). For this, different street lights will be installed – some of them will be decorated in the old style and resemble gas in appearance.
The parapets of the embankments are accentuated with special lighting, consisting of more than 500 lamps. All overhead wires will be removed to underground collectors, this will improve the visibility and appearance of the space. Reconstruction of the drainage network, installation of new rainwater wells is planned.
In the course of the work, the sidewalks will be renewed – they will be paved with granite tiles, and a solid asphalt concrete pavement will be laid on the roadway.
Three comfortable stopping pavilions with wireless Internet and charging stations for gadgets will be created for pedestrians and public transport passengers. 15 navigation steles will help the guests of the capital to navigate in the renewed area.
All green spaces will be preserved along the embankments and about 600 trees and more than 11 thousand shrubs will be planted in addition. Lawns will be tidied up, 5.6 thousand square meters of flower beds will be laid out.
The plantations will separate the sidewalks from the roadway and create a quiet and safe pedestrian zone.
The main improvement works are planned to be completed by September this year.
