Zajęcza Street will gain a new surface on the section from Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie to Topiel Street. The renovation will be associated with changes in traffic organization. A common pedestrian and bicycle route will be eliminated. The bike lane will be moved onto the road.
The repair will be carried out by the Municipal Road Repair and Maintenance Department at the request of the Municipal Roads Authority. There are already clear yellow signs in the area informing about the closure. Zajęcza Street will be closed between the Świętokrzyski Bridge and Topiel Street exactly from 10 p.m. on Friday, April 28, to 4 a.m. on May 2 (Tuesday). Since the beginning of this week, the first preparatory work has been underway. However, they do not cause traffic difficulties, the street is passable all the time.
Liquidation of the pedestrian and bicycle route
“Renovation of the roadway, in addition to improving the drivers’ driving experience, is often an opportunity to introduce a number of minor changes. Their scope depends on the needs and possibilities in a given place. Sometimes it is the elimination of architectural barriers (e.g. lowering curbs), redundant asphalt or concrete surfaces with greenery), and in yet another change in the organization of traffic. On the renovated section of Zajęcza Street and on the western abutment of the Świętokrzyski Bridge, the organization of traffic will change. ” – informs in the communiqué ZDM.
Cyclists with a lane on the road
The pedestrian and bicycle route in the north-western abutment of the Świętokrzyski bridge, i.e. along the building of the Copernicus Science Centre, will be completely eliminated. This space will be turned into a sidewalk. “Directly from the Świętokrzyski Bridge, cyclists will descend onto a new two-way bicycle path, which will be separated from the extreme right lane of the road. Such traffic organization will apply up to the intersection with Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie. Then, a one-way bicycle lane will be designated, which will be a natural and logical extension of such a of the same type of lane, which is located on the further section of Zajęcza Street. This means the liquidation of the common pedestrian and bicycle route also at the height of the building complex of Elektrownia Powiśle” – reports ZDM.
