It’s done, it’s done. I mean, almost. As Večerník already announced in the previous edition, the day of Remembrance of the Dead became key for the re-opening of the busy Zádvorí road for drivers. A new sidewalk also winds around a substantial part of the repaired road, which will significantly contribute to pedestrian safety. It starts at the gate leading to the former tractor station and should end at Vyšehrad. But first, it will need to be finished.
If drivers want to go from Konica to Prostějov or Olomouc, they most often choose the route via Zádvoří Street. Its reconstruction started already in the spring, and from the beginning of the summer holidays, the busy road was completely closed. Since the end of September, drivers have been able to drive here, but only from 5 p.m. to 7 a.m. the following day. From Thursday, November 2, they can use the road all day. The Olomouc region invested 17 million crowns in modifications that did not only concern the road surface, but even the change of the road route.
The official opening was attended by the Governor of the Olomouc Region, Josef Suchánek, who wished all drivers to always reach their destination. At the same time, together with his deputy, he promised that the region will continue to invest in road repairs in Konicko.
Will the new sidewalk start at the Penny Market?
Construction works worth another 18 million crowns came to Konická town hall, which went to new sidewalks, lighting and utility networks. “We still have to finish the nearly two-kilometer sidewalk, the construction of which we could not start before mid-September due to various complications. Its part in the built-up part of the city is finished, however, in the section from the pond to Vyšehrad Street, drivers will still have to take into account the traffic lights,” explained the mayor of Konik, Michal Obrusník, who was asked by Večerník on the spot how things would be with the beginning of the sidewalk. At the moment, it opens into the gate leading to the dilapidated area of the former tractor station. “We firmly believe that the buildings standing in close proximity to the road will be razed to the ground in the future and not only a sidewalk will grow in their place, but also a Penny Market with a parking lot,” Obrusník responded in this context.
