Mester Street is one of the most atmospheric and popular streets in the Hungarian capital, Budapest. Now, the greening of the street continues. The pavement will be torn up to thin the asphalt and replaced with flowers.
New flower beds and plant containers will be created by breaking up the pavement at the sites selected during the community planning process, says the FŐKERT.
Mester Street is charming as it is, with its huge, intertwining tree-lined street, napi.hu writes. However, there is still a large area of asphalt at ground level. This will be improved this year by a Community Budget project to green Mester Street.
The first phase of the renovation will start on 27 March, with tree maintenance work on the stretch between Haller Street and Bokréta Street. From 1 April onwards, it will continue on the section between Bokréta Street and Ferenc Boulevard.
Traffic restrictions are expected on the affected sections from 27 March.
Afterwards, six sections of Mester Street will be paved with plant containers. These will be planted with perennial plants of different colours, sizes and habitats. A total of 13 different species of plants will be growing and glowing along the street, each in a different season.
The project is independent from, but fully in line with, the major renovation works planned by the Budapest Transport Centre (BKK) later on. We wrote about the plans in detail HERE.
I guess there is hope- I have collection of dead planting areas- even in the best areas a lacking care – hope they know it a year around job.there needs to be a trade school on how to maintain green areas.
You can see by the video they have many plant areas that are dead.
That’s a wonderful idea…I wish every success , but also hope there will be someone designated to care and maintain the new plants , to water and keep weed free. 🌴🥀🌸
