On 4 May, the city will start renovating Sretenka Street under the My Street programme. Work starts 9 pm on Thursday. There are no plans for stopping all traffic on the four-lane street, but its outer lanes might be closed to vehicles.
Local traffic organisation
The street will be improved section by section, so as not to inconvenience city residents. From Thursday 4 May and until early July, workers will upgrade the street’s even-numbered side.The odd-numbered side will be renovated from early July until late August. Therefore two outer lanes will be closed off on the street’s odd-numbered section.
Two lanes will be open to traffic during the entire project.
During the roadwork, construction sites will be fenced off from the carriageway and the pavement, and their boundaries will be marked by pilot lights. Temporary road signs will be installed for drivers. Temporary orange markings will be painted near the construction sites. Workers will install temporary boardwalks, ramps and exits for the convenience of pedestrians.
Pavement surfaces will then be removed, and cable tunnels installed.
Sretenka Street in for major changes
The improved pavements will become almost twice as wide and will be covered with granite paving stones. A new pedestrian-friendly zone will be created, and almost 1,000 metres of overhead wiring will be buried underground.
Drivers will use two lanes in the direction of the Garden Ring, and a new designated transit lane will link the street with central Moscow. Another designated transit lane will link the street with the Garden Ring after intersecting with Lukov Pereulok. Conveniently located car laybys on the street and in nearby lanes will not obstruct traffic.
Sretenka will receive over 50 new lamps with energy-efficient lights. Over 20 other new lamps will illuminate nearby lanes. The façades of local buildings will be renovated under the My Street programme. The city’s Boulevard, Kremlin and Garden Rings, the Yakimanskaya and Krasnopresnenskaya Embankments, Petrovka Street and the 1st, 3rd and 4th Golutvinsky Pereuloks are currently being renovated under the My Street programme.
The 2017 My Street programme covers over 80 city areas, such as streets, squares, lanes and residential-building courtyards.
