Work has begun on engineering preparation for the improvement of two areas of the future “Yauza Park” in the north-east of the capital. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow Pyotr Biryukov.
“This year we plan to improve two floodplain areas of the Chermyanka, the main tributary of the Yauza within the city. The area of work will be about 50 hectares,” the official noted. Biryukov added that all these works must be carried out before the start of the arrangement of the road and path network, sports and children’s facilities, pavilions and other infrastructure facilities of the park.
As part of the work, it is planned to build two transformer substations, over 60 km of outdoor lighting, power supply and architectural and artistic lighting networks, more than 10 km of cable for an emergency warning system and video surveillance will be laid. More than 5.6 thousand piles for the foundation of the eco-trail will be installed, over 3 km of storm drains will be equipped.
According to the Deputy Mayor, more than 800 lighting poles, 125 CCTV cameras and 82 emergency signaling devices will be installed in two areas of the future park. The head of the municipal economy complex stressed that the main task is to create a single space with cozy and comfortable recreation areas for all categories of citizens. “The project was developed taking into account the wishes of local residents and the characteristics of the territory. The longest ecological park in Europe will appear along the Yauza,” Biryukov concluded.
