In Kyiv, where traffic restrictions were recently introduced, the construction of a transport hub at the intersection of Polarnaya and Bogatyrska streets in the Obolonskyi district of the city continues.
This was announced by the mayor of Kyiv Vitaliy Klitschko.
“At the transport hub at the intersection of Polarnaya and Bogatyrska streets in the capital’s Obolon district, temporary roads have already been set up, temporary markings have been applied and road signs have been installed. 14 piles were concreted (a total of 80 are planned). We rearranged the traffic light objects and catenary network supports, and started work on the relocation of water supply networks”he said.
According to the mayor of Kyiv, the road junction will be built in 2 levels. The length of the main thoroughfare will be more than 3 km, as will the length of the sidewalks. The length of bicycle paths is more than 1.5 km. It will have 6 traffic lanes, and the length of the overpass is more than 250 m. A new underpass will also be installed.
“The reconstruction of this intersection will increase the throughput capacity of the transport hub and, according to the designers’ calculations, will reduce traffic jams in this part of Obolon. The projected throughput capacity of the updated hub is more than 11,000 cars per hour. We plan to open the new overpass to traffic by the end of this year. And we will finish the entire complex of works on the large object by the end of 2024”– summarized Klitschko.
It will be recalled that at the beginning of June, a tragedy occurred in Kyiv – during an air raid alert, three people died who could not get to the closed bomb shelter. After that, the inspection of shelters began not only in the capital, but also throughout the country. In particular, the situation with bomb shelters in Kyiv turned out to be extremely unsatisfactory. After that, the capital authorities promised to eliminate the shortcomings, as well as to install modular concrete warehouses where there are no stationary ones.
According to the mayor, automated access systems have also begun to be installed in shelters in Kyiv. The first will appear in the Darnytsia district of the capital. The innovation is caused by the need to ensure unimpeded access to civil defense facilities when the enemy activates the use of ballistic missiles to damage the infrastructure.
