The construction of a pedestrian and cycling promenade with street furniture (fountains, small benches, pergolas, vantage point, field structures etc.), park greenery and a children’s playground, as well as a recreation beach and a service pavilion is to commence at the beginning of next year. The rebuilding will include 2 km of the parade extending from the Old Town to Świętokrzyski Bridge and the Powiśle underground station.

Planting design includes tree planting in the form of lines and avenues of trees, and riverside greenery planting along the pedestrian and cycling parade. The acoustic partitions, intended to be built along the side of Wisłostrada, will reduce the interference from street noise with the pedestrian promenade and the Vistula valley. The reshaping of land relief is also involved (including the building of the new lower level of the parade), as well as the supply of ramps joining the levels of the parade, adjusted to the needs of the disabled, and the reconstruction of the water supply and sewerage system, and the electric system.

The parade and the surrounding area will provide an attractive programme intended for various users.

The project also covers the wharf reconstruction, so that it is more appealing and adapted to mooring needs. The wharf will be equipped with electric and water supply and sewerage installations.

The building of the underpass on Bednarskiej Street and the rebuilding of two underpasses on Grodzkiej Street and Boleść Street will provide the residents of Warsaw and tourists with access to the parade. The underground passages will be equipped with a flood safety system and lead directly to the promenade level.

The innovative solutions are being adopted in the case of service pavilions (a beach pavilion, tourist services, cafés and galleries) along the pedestrian and bicycling promenade. Due to their settlement onto the floats, when water is rising the pavilions will float attached to the dolphins embedded in the structure of the buildings.
