Preliminary street design and traffic scheme for Kyivskyi Shliakh (between vul. Momota and vul. Glibova) in the city of Boryspil

Kyivskyi Shliakh is the main street of Boryspil. It also serves as a part of the international highway M-03. The main goal of the project was to improve traffic safety for all road users without creating increased congestion and with preserving the balance of city functions, transport functions and accessibility. The stretch of the street that was included in the project is 1 km long and was envisaged as the first step of the complete reconstruction of the entire street. 

Project objectives: 

  • prevent speeding after the planned surface repavement,  

  • reduce risks of head-on collisions,  

  • allow safe left turns from the street an onto the street,  

  • provide safe pedestrian crossings and safe cycling conditions.  

Project activities: 

  • Field survey and data collection on traffic flows, pedestrian and cycling conditions 

  • Development of a "complete street" concept for the central street – Kyivsky Shliakh 

  • Micromodelling of traffic and pedestrian flows  

  • Communication with local businesses (retailers, office centers) 

  • Development of drawings in scale 1:500 that include carriageway, lane markings, signalized and non-signalized intersections, pedestrian crossings, sidewalks, cycle paths, parking slots, green areas; 

  • Development of traffic schemes and control plans of six signalized intersections; 

  • Microscopic modelling of transport flows in the software environment Eclipse SUMO; 

  • Extensive stakeholder consultations including mayor, vice mayors, city departments, the National Police, business property owners and sceptical members of the city  council 

Project results: 

  • Lane width of 3.00 meters, which has a traffic calming effect; 

  • Physical separation of carriageways with a 2-meter wide raised median, that creates traffic calming effect, prevents unauthorized left turns, and minimizes the risks of head-on collisions and side impact collisions; 

  • Pedestrian crossings with signalization and safety medians lead to significant improvement of safety and security for local dwellers; 

  • Left-turn lanes with conflict-less signalization allow to provide safe left turns while not impeding the main traffic flow; 

  • Safe bicycle paths and bicycle crossings promote sustainable mobility. 

The preliminary design was approved, developed into detailed project design and implemented in reality in 2021 (bicycle paths and sidewalks will be implemented as separate project).
