Almost all works were carried out manually, because it is impossible to use heavy equipment at the object, co-owner of the company Yevhen Konovalov told Interfax-Ukraine.
The new alleys were paved with uniform pattern granite tiles and new street light poles with modern LED lamps were installed, the company said.
The stairs, lecture center and art compositions were decorated with lighting.
Also, the retaining wall was reinforced. Benches were installed. New trees and shrubs were planted.
Automatic retractable poles were installed to limit access of vehicles to the alley. In addition, the runoff water system was replaced.
Peizazhna Alley is a landmark in central Kyiv. A view of Podil and the Dnipro River opens from the observation platform, which is located in the Upper City.
The alley was constructed in 1980. Sculptures, art installations and a square appeared there as time went on.
The facility requires an extensive overhaul. The second stage of the modernization starts in the near future and will be completed in 2021.
The project was carried out by Rostdorstroy LLC, a part of the RDS group of road construction companies, which won a tender worth UAH 110 million at the beginning of 2020.
