Added: 2012-05-13
Event date: summer, 2012
This summer Kyiv residents will be able park their cars on the lawns as Europeans do. City council officials decided to solve the problem of parking: to build so-called ecological parking lots. They will be made of special plastic, German technology being used. When there is no vehicle on such parking lot, you get an impression of seeing a lawn. However this “lawn” is not damaged when a car drives on it. “Drivers have more space for parking, and a green zone is preserved, - said the official from the Main department of public works in Kyiv city state administration about the project. – Public workers dig the ground; they plant grass, but vehicles spoil the area. Due to a new technology, both grass and ground are saved.” The cost of a square meter is UAH 190. The parking lots will be created in park and recreation zones, where the concentration of vehicles is the highest; they will also be available near shopping and entertainment centers. The work will be started at the end of May; within a month district public work departments will be ready with lists of the places where such parking lots are most necessary.
