The works are being carried out on the streets of Barvikhinskaya, Natasha Kovshova and 50 Let Oktyabrya, as well as on Lomonosovsky Prospekt and on the section of Universitetsky Prospekt from Mosfilmovskaya Street to Michurinsky Prospekt.
Five streets will be landscaped in the west of the capital in a house-to-house format. The total area of the territories that will be put in order will be 60 hectares.
The “from home to home” format is part of the citywide improvement program “My District”; it provides for a comprehensive overhaul of the territory from the facade of the building on one side of the street to the facade of the building on the other side.
“When choosing streets for repair, they are guided by the turnaround time, the condition of the roadway, the traffic intensity, as well as the proximity of important social and other facilities. The task is not only to repair the roads and bring them to a standard state, but also to ensure safety – to install new traffic lights, organize safety islands and equip new pedestrian crossings with contrasting lighting. Now work is underway on the streets of Barvikhinskaya, Natasha Kovshova and 50 Let Oktyabrya, as well as on Lomonosovsky Prospekt and on the Universitetsky section – from Mosfilmovskaya Street to Michurinsky Prospekt, ”said the deputy head
Department of overhaul of the city of Moscow Anton Akulov…

The streets where the work is taking place are located in the districts of Ochakovo-Matveevskoe, Mozhaisky, Solntsevo, Ramenki and Gagarinsky. The improvement will ensure safety and convenience for all road users – pedestrians, passengers of public transport and motorists.
“On Lomonosovsky Prospekt there will be a cycle path and 12 new exits between the avenue and its backup, a dedicated lane for public transport will be organized. This will optimize the movement of urban public transport. The number of parking lots on Universitetsky Prospekt will increase to 85 parking spaces. They will be arranged parallel to the movement – this provides better visibility, therefore, it is safer. And the streets of 50 Let Oktyabrya and Natasha Kovshova will become full-fledged pedestrian zones among the residential area. On Barvikhinskaya Street, the site and approaches to the local memorial will be put in order – this is a real long-term firing point during the Great Patriotic War, ”added Anton Akulov.
