Movement on Nevsky Prospect will be limited
This year reconstruction of Nevsky Prospect will begin in St. Petersburg. Instead of worn asphalt pavement will be laid granite tiles. About 500 million rubles are allocated from the city budget for these works.
As they say in the Committee for Improvement and Road Management of St. Petersburg, the main street of the city is in disrepair. Cracks on the roads, rutting, and the asphalt itself has already grown old. In this regard, the city authorities decided to repair the section of Nevsky Prospect from Alexander Nevsky Square to the Palace Bridge. It was decided to pave the granite on Staronevsky Prospect and the area around the Ploshchad Vosstaniya metro station.
Date of commencement of work is still unknown. There was also no competition for the selection of a general contractor for repairs and paving of Nevsky Prospect. However, officials say that VAD can be engaged in asphalt paving, and Revival St. Petersburg is the paving complex.
Completely block the movement of the Nevsky at the time of the work will not be. Officials promise only to block part of the bands.
“There are eight lanes on Nevsky Prospect: four to one and four to the other side. When the repair will be carried out, the movement will be carried out only in four lanes: two in one and two in the other direction, ”explain the Committee on Improvement and Road Management.
