Bucharest City Hall to Build Pedestrian Underpass in Romana Square
The Bucharest City Hall wants to build a pedestrian underpass in Romana Square in order and to link the underpass with the subway station, a City Hall project shows.
According to the Urban Plan currently in public debate, the underpass will have five entry points (two at the Academy of Economic Sciences, one in front of BCR and one between the Lascar Catargiu and Dacia Boulevards), fixed stairways, escalators and lifts, and will be linked with the Romana Square subway station.
The same project proposes public lighting, pedestrian traffic, green areas and easing of auto traffic. The project on modernizing the Romana Square and constructing a pedestrian underpass has been posted on the City Hall’s website.
PiaÃÂa RomanÃÂ (The Roman Square) is a major traffic intersection in Sector 1, central Bucharest. Two major boulevards intersect there: LascÃÂr Catargiu Boulevard (which runs northwest towards PiaÃ Â£a Victoriei) and Magheru Boulevard (which runs south by southeast towards University Square). The two roads also coincide geographically with the Bucharest Metro Line M2. The square is served by the PiaÃÂa RomanÃÂ metro station, on Magheru Boulevard. Dacia Boulevard runs roughly east-west through the square.
