by Yaroslav Yasko on September 24, 2018

New pedestrian areas should appear in the city, the creation of which has received a priority status. Their arrangement officials and city planners discussed on September 14 at a meeting of Deputy Governor Igor Albin.

Petrogradsky district

In the Petrogradsky district, a well-equipped pedestrian zone with dedicated bike paths can be stretched along the embankment of the Karpovka River. The project includes both walking areas and areas for quiet rest. The embankment promises to become accessible to the low-mobile groups of the population with the advent of special sites.

If the project receives the approval of the authorities, there will be allocated children’s play areas for the younger and older ages, with a separate place for children with disabilities, equipped areas for sports and recreation, an amphitheater with a stage. Walking territory, including, can be stretched directly on the water – due to the installation of pontoons.

Admiralteysky district: street art and continuous hiking trails

Here, a new look must take the quarter, bounded by Galernaya Street, the embankment of the Admiralty Canal and the area of Labor. The project assumes the creation of street art objects in the courtyards that outplay the historical context.

if the territory development project is approved, walkers will be able to walk along the continuous routes, starting from Bolshaya Morskaya Street, through the square of St. Isaac’s Square and through the Konnogvardeisky boulevard and Trud Square to the embankment of the Admiralty Canal.

Park on Smolenka River: illumination and bike lanes

The priority task in the Vasileostrovsky district is the improvement of the Novosmolenskaya embankment. For its design, the concept “Scenic Light” was proposed – a complex transformation of the territory, the facades of buildings, bridges, small architectural forms are going to receive their own illumination. It is also proposed to create a permanent illumination of the landscape of the Smolenka embankment. This zone should become more comfortable for cyclists – St. Petersburg’s city administration officials promise to develop new cycling routes and bike parking areas.
