The work will take place near the transport hubs Savelovskaya, Severyanin-Rostokino, Okruzhnaya and Rizhskaya.
Specialists of the municipal economy complex will improve the territories near four metropolitan transport hubs (TPU) in 2022. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Petr Biryukov.
The work will be carried out near the Savelovskaya, Severyanin-Rostokino (SVAO), Okruzhnaya (on the border of the SAO and SVAO) and Rizhskaya (on the border of the Central and SVAO) transport hubs.
“As part of the projects, we will put the sidewalks in order and renew the asphalt surface of the roadway, we will organize parking lots with convenient arrivals and departures, parking pockets for motorists. We will remove overhead cable lines underground, lay storm sewers and install additional rain grates,” said Petr Biryukov.
He also noted that about 500 lamps and street lamps with energy-saving lamps will be installed for the safety of pedestrians. About 80 contrasting lighting poles will be installed near the ground crossings so that the zebra and pedestrians on it are more visible to drivers. Public transport passengers will be equipped with modern stops with wireless communication and charging slots.
“Greening is an important component of all capital improvement projects. During the work, more than 100 trees and 800 shrubs will be planted near the transfer hub, the lawn area will be almost 56,000 square meters. There will also be comfortable benches of various modifications,” added the deputy mayor.
