Flowering trees and a terrace amphitheatre: New look for the area around Ulitsa 1905 Goda metro station
Design concept
Workers will upgrade utility systems, repave the territory with granite tiles, install energy-saving lamp posts and plant new trees and bushes.

The city will soon create a green amphitheatre consisting of multi-level terraces in the square near the Ulitsa 1905 Goda Metro station. The improvement is to be complete by the end of the summer.

Workers are currently preparing the territory for the utilities, as they have already upgraded the water supply networks and repaired gas supply systems, said Moscow Deputy Mayor for Housing, Utilities and Amenities Pyotr Biryukov. Now, they are working on the underground cable tunnels, which are to contain about 9,500 metres of overhead cables. Laying the cables underground will make the area safer and more secure and improve the view of the sky from the streets. Over 70 percent of the work has already been completed, the Deputy Mayor added.

Work is also underway on the resurfacing of the square with granite tiles and the creation of lawns. The city is planning to renovate the drainage system, installing 12 drain shafts and 80 rain water inlets. In addition, there are to be 70 energy-saving lamp posts.

In late autumn, new trees and bushes will be planted in the square to protect passers-by from dust and noise.  “On the south side of the square, benches will be installed in the shade of the trees and bushes,” Biryukov said. “They will be positioned to avoid impeding access to the metro station.”

Once the improvement works are over, the square near the Ulitsa 1905 Goda station will become a comfortable space that enables access to the station and gives people a chance to relax.
