Redesign: Trams to Skenderija, Moving Lanes to Bascarsija? (VIDEO)

Our country has many experts who want to contribute to the development of city infrastructure with their creative ideas. One of them is the professor at the Faculty of Transport and Communications in Sarajevo, Osman Lindov, who believes that it is about time for the capital of BiH to implement some innovative ideas with the aim of more beautiful look and better living conditions.

As an engineer of traffic, Lindov and his postgraduate student developed several innovative solutions for our capital city. They redesigned pedestrian zone of Ferhadija Street, Titova Street, tram station Pofalici, and riverbed of Miljacka River.

As Lindov explained, his original idea is to exclude trams from the traffic on the section Skenderija – Bascarsija.

“Tram and trolleybus wires are bothering me. They are not a really nice sight. There is no need for a tram to enter the old part of the city and make additional noise. Our residents and tourists need functional walking trails and moving lanes and we need some recreation along Miljacka River,” said Lindov.

According to his plan of redesign of Miljacka River near the Gymnasium Obala, moving lanes with solar panels would be placed along the street towards Bascarsija.

He also has ideas for redesign of Ferhadija Street and Titova Street. The promenades in these streets are usually crowded, which is why the refreshment is needed, according to Lindov. His innovative idea is to make pedestrian platforms in Ferhadija Street that would be made in the same style as the surrounding buildings. A moving lane would be placed between the platforms as a replacement for the tram railways. Lindov would also place moving panels in Titova Street, which would open and close in accordance with different weather conditions.

“Panels would be used in the heat and rain, and thus the pedestrian zone in Titova Street would be fully active and used,” stated Prof. Lindov.

“We have to make innovative solutions, because we will not be able to offer nice and healthy living conditions on the current, classic solutions. We have to have a vision,” said Lindov.

Professor Lindov also made videos for each of his solutions, and you can find them on YouTube.
