My proposal was presented with other ideas to Moscovsky district administration, but there wa no further actions on the project.
Because of this, I took this proposal to participatory budgeting project, it was approved by the district administration, but transportation committee disapproved it. They claimed that Basseynaya street needs all 4 lanes for moving cars and denied that 2 of 4 lanes are always used for parking, and if we narrow the street to 2 lanes where pedestrian crossing is, «the street will always be in traffic jams», which is surely not true, according to worldwide experience.
Transportation committee also insisted that current pedestrian crossings are fine and safe, but my research of car crash data
points out otherwise.
