Ah, Arbat! On the main pedestrian street of the capital car traffic will return?


On the Old Arbat cars can return. At least, the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov called the matter open the Old Arbat in Moscow. Photo: depositphotos.com On the Old Arbat could return car traffic, the chief architect of Moscow Sergey Kuznetsov considers. "The old Arbat is longish for the pedestrian zone. The movement is normal, correct, with traffic lights, at a low speed recovers the street rather, than takes away from her something. Besides, it disciplines people. For me leaving of transport from the Old Arbat still open question" — he has said on air of Govorit Moskva radio station. Pedestrian the Old Arbat became in the USSR — too long ago to change him so considerably, the urbanist considers, the author of the blog "The City for People" Arkady Gershman: — the Logician in his words is because the Old Arbat — the long street, and that is characteristic, it isn't provided with the public or individual transport, only in any way if to approach on the street from the neighboring lanes or to pass it completely on foot that not the best decision for pedestrian zones. The old Arbat — already developed pedestrian zone become a prototype for many regional local Arbatov. It is extremely saturated at least in the afternoon, and during week-end especially. There a large number of activities, for example musicians contribute to quality of this pedestrian environment, there is a big risk that if there to return cars, then all this will be gone. Perhaps, conveniences to someone are more valuable, but in general conditions will become worse. — How do you consider, something will follow this offer? — It isn't sure. The similar offer has been already earlier stated by Sergey Kuznetsov about three years ago, but further discussion it doesn't have gone. I don't think that from the political point of view someone will decide to take away such important place from Muscovites. On number of pedestrians the Old Arbat obviously loses today to other similar streets. It is possible how time because on it no public transport goes, the partner of KB Strelka Alexey Muratov:aleksey Muratov the partner of KB Strelka considers "Experience of the past FIFA World Cup has shown that the Old Arbat has lost in the competition to other pedestrian zones of the capital, first of all with Nikolskaya Street and with Kuznetsky Bridge where a much bigger pedestrian stream. Of course, something with the Old Arbat needs to be done: to return there only cars or only public transport, for example in a format of the bus or tram, as in Istanbul. These questions it is possible and it is necessary to discuss, first of all with inhabitants and expert community. Probably, it is quite good that the chief architect of Moscow has set a subject for a discussion. It is a lot of chances that this idea won't go further a talk. Now few other vector of urban policy on improvement of quality of Wednesday". The project of transformation of the Old Arbat into the pedestrian zone was finished in 1986. The street was arranged well, facades of buildings have restored. Instead of asphalt on the Arbat there was a stone blocks, and in the middle of the street lawns with flowers, benches and lamps in retro style. To add BFM.ru in ва
