Connection between the Lower and Upper Terraces of New Town in the Track of Ausros Path

The planned route would connect the Nemunas Island with Zaliakalnis and cross the main pedestrian street of the new Town – Laisves Avenue.

When forming the traffic, pedestrian or bicycle routes / corridors, attention should be paid to arrangement of approaches in additions to the routes, in order to form attractive and lively environment. Selection of infrastructure objects and project solutions are an integral part of this work.

In essence, the project is aimed at creating a functional and attractive link, eliminate the physical boundary of the Nemunas slope, which prevents comfortable movement of citizens – pedestrians and cyclists, disable persons – from Kaunas centre to the upper terrace on the axis linking Nemunas island – Daukanto Street – Vienybes square up to Prisikelimo Church. A linear public space should be formed, filled with social content.

The programme for executing this project is free, You can develop Your own scenario and scope of the project. It is important to emphasize promotion of self-identification of the community of the Centre. Research of historical and present situation of the territory is carried out, and analysis of technical feasibility of forming a juncture is performed before scheduling the design works. Planning of the link between the historical centre of the town and Zaliakalnis leaves space for implementation of an individual idea.
