Changes to Kondratowicz
Road workers announced that the main artery of Targówek will be built “almost from scratch”. They recalled that Kondratowicza is 60 meters wide and has a large lane dividing between the roadways. It is a reserve for a tram route planned here decades ago. Instead, a subway was built, so the space can be flexibly shaped. Kondratowicza is to be transformed into an “avenue of a thousand trees”, because next to the 300 existing trees, about 700 are to be planted.
In addition, they promised 136,000 bushes of various species and new lawns and flower meadows. About 100 benches are planned along the street. Around them, architects from the WXCA studio planned small squares, as well as a large green square at the Bródno station. As emphasized by ZDM, dozens of trees and thousands of shrubs were to appear also in the area of the Zacisze station.
The road layout will remain essentially the same, with two lanes in each direction. The network of bicycle routes will undergo a major change. There will be two two-way bicycle lanes, each three meters wide, between metro stations.
