More Pedestrian Bridges Will Be Constructed In Moscow
November 10, 2014 14:05


 The experts of the Design Institute of the Master Lay-Out proposed to build a few pedestrian bridges across the Moscow River in the city centre, as the agency “Moskva” reports with reference to the chief specialist of the workshop for development of the road network of the Institute Ekaterina Chernashkina.

It is proposed to connect Krasnokholmskaya and Kosmodamianskaya embankments near the House of Music by a pedestrian bridge. It would be logical to establish pedestrian connection also with the business centre “Moskva-City” – Chernashkina noted. “We have a proposal to equip a pedestrian bridge on the Third Ring Road, from the residential area of Kievskaya Street to “Moskva-City”- she added. The experts of the Design Institute of the Master Lay-Outalso drafted a bridge from the Streets of 1905 Year to Tarasa Shevchenko embankment. However, it has not yet been decided if the new bridge will be traffic or pedestrian one.

According to Ekaterina Chernashkina, the centre of the capital is in need of a pedestrian bridge, and the banks of the Moscow River should be connected by traffic bridges beyond the Third Ring Road. “Transport links between the banks of the river at the Sadovoye Ring Road are already established. I think only pedestrian bridges should be built in the centre. And the problems begin beyond the Third Ring Road, because the territory was mastered in an accelerated pace there, people thought less about bridges” - Ekaterina Chernashkina explained. As previously wrote, it was planned to build a bridge in the Central Autonomous District in the area of Yakimanka.

The pedestrian bridge will connect the Park of Arts MUZEON and the “Red October” factory. The territory of the “Golden Island” with the site of the former candy factory will become a public pedestrian area. Besides, the historical building will be completely preserved. The proposals of the Design Institute of the Master Lay-Out may be taken into account by the finalists of the international competition for the development of areas along the Moscow River.

The winning team will need to pay particular attention to the bridges. The organizers of the competition stressed the deficiency of bridges in the north-west - from the city border to the Third Ring Road and in the south-east – from the territory of ZIL to the border. Let us recall that in September the jury determined six competition finalists, the winner will be chosen in mid-December.
