Nevsky Prospekt - Pedestrian Zone

 It is planned to turn a part of Nevsky Prospekt in St. Petersburg into a pedestrian zone.

      An opportunity to make a part of Bolshaya Morskaya from Nevsky Prospekt to the General Headquarters Arch a pedestrian street is also considered. It is possible that Nevsky Prospekt will become a pedestrian zone on Sundays already in August of this year. This project is currently being considered in the Committee for Economic Policy and Strategic Planning.

      Previously the idea was brought up by the “Beautiful Petersburg” movement. The activists sent their conceptual proposal to the committee which supported the concept and developed it in more detail. The idea is to turn a part of Nevsky Prospekt - from Fontanka to Moika - into a pedestrian zone on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. The results of the street poll showed that more than 80% of the city residents and tourists supported the idea of making this site a pedestrian zone instead of a parking lot.
