On the streets of Pekhotnaya, Geroev-Panfilovtsev and Zhivopisnaya, asphalt and curbs will be replaced, sidewalks will be put in order, traffic lights and modern stop pavilions will be installed.
Until the end of the year, three streets will be landscaped in the North-Western Administrative District: Pekhotnaya, Heroes-Panfilovtsev and Zhivopisnaya. They are located in the Shchukino, Severnoye Tushino and Khoroshevo-Mnevniki districts. The total area of the improvement will be 23.75 hectares.
“The main landscaping work on Pekhotnaya Street has already been completed, on Heroes-Panfilovtsev Street they have been completed by 75 percent, and on Zhivopisnaya Street – by almost 90 percent. At all three sites, asphalt concrete pavement is being laid on the roadway, “said the deputy head
The works will be carried out in the “from home to home” format, this is part of the citywide program “My District”. This format provides for overhaul of the territory from the facade of the building on one side of the street to the facade of the building on the other. At the same time, specialists carry out a full range of road repair work: they change the surface of the roadway and sidewalks, install a curbstone, and, if necessary, update the storm sewer.
In addition, after the improvement, new parking spaces will appear on these streets. So, instead of 210 parking spaces on Heroes-Panfilovtsev Street, 253 seats will be created, on Zhivopisnaya Street – 109 (previously there were 66) and on Pekhotnaya Street – 69 (previously there were 48).
“As part of the work, comfortable sidewalks are being arranged. Their total area will be 45.9 thousand square meters. A new base and a lower layer of asphalt concrete pavement have already been made. The top layer of asphalt will be laid in the near future. The coverage of the roadway with an area of 75.6 thousand square meters will also be replaced, ”said Anton Akulov.
Four new traffic lights will be installed on the streets, comfortable pedestrian crossings will be equipped and 13 modern stop pavilions will be installed. In them, you can not only protect yourself from snow and rain, but also recharge your gadgets.
“On the streets of Heroes-Panfilovtsev, Pekhotnaya and Zhivopisnaya there are tram and bus routes that connect the districts of Tushino, Pokrovskoye-Streshnevo, Kurkino, Mitino. At the same time, these are areas where a large number of residential buildings are located, as well as schools, kindergartens and clinics. After the completion of the work, it will become more comfortable for pedestrians to move along the streets, and for passengers of public transport and drivers, the road situation will become safer, ”said the deputy head of the department.
When choosing streets for improvement within the framework of the “from home to home” format, the turnaround time, the condition of the roadway, the traffic volume, as well as the proximity of important social facilities are taken into account. The main task of the improvement is to improve the quality of the pedestrian environment. These are convenient sidewalks and additional pedestrian crossings. The transport scheme is changing to ensure the safety and comfort of pedestrians, public transport passengers and motorists.
