The high street will be complemented with street furniture, new tree alleys, and artistic interventions in the public space.

The reconstruction of the tram line in the Strossmayerovo náměstí - railway viaduct - U Výstaviště Street section is a clear opportunity to rehabilitate the entire street space. We therefore developed a conceptual study of the given area based on an initiative by the Prague Public Transit Company and the Prague 7 municipal district. The design increases safety and permeability. Public spaces will be improved while new pedestrian crossings and barrier-free stops will be created. The high street will be complemented with street furniture, new tree alleys, and artistic interventions in the public space.
