English logo of project Safe City

With the help of Stoki Community Council, we have designed a traffic regorganisation in the area emphasised by the Council.

Our idea centers on streets: Janosika - Pszczyńska - Krokusowa, together with the intersections of Powstańców Śląskich with Telefoniczna and Pomorska.

 

The main problems listed are:

  • heavy motorist traffic using Janosika as a shortcut between estates
  • heavy lorry traffic, where the city is an estate city and its parameters are not proper to carry such vehicles. During our consultation, numerous residents complained about heavy vibration which leads to cracks in their buildings. The residents demand a limit in lorry traffic in the area.
  • neglecting the 40hm/h speed limit
  • no pedestrian crossings in proper locations
  • a very dangerous intersection with Pomorska
  • unclear intersection with Powstańsców Śląskich, where cars park practically in the middle of the intersection

Moreover:

  • varied street surface, mostly incorrect, destroyed by the lorries
  • no pavements
  • varied landscape makes it easier for all drivers to neglect the speed limit.

The idea prepared is not a final version, but rather a proposal.
