On the 1811 master plan of Vinnytsia, there is only a small number of houses on the territory of modern Zamostia, mostly near the Southern Bug River, and there is no Zamostianska Street yet.
In the second half of the 18th century, the Zamostia district was being actively built, and the 1909 map already shows the network of streets that has been preserved to this day. The map shows Zamostianska street, which was then called Velyka Mykolaivska Street. Later on, the street was renamed many times. On the 1916 map it is named Voznesenska (in honor of the Voznesenska Church that was built at the intersection of the street with the modern Kotsiubynskoho Avenue), on the 1926 map – Trotskoho Street, on the 1943 German map – Hetmana Doroshenka Street. Then it was named Voroshylova Street, and in 1991 it was renamed Chervonoho Kozatstva Street. In 1995, to commemorate the half-century anniversary of the victory in the great Patriotic War, the street was renamed 50-richchia Peremohy Street. The street received its current name in 2015.
The prerequisite for the reconstruction of Zamostianska Street was the need to:
- re-lay tram tracks that got deformed with time and needed to be replaced;
- install the stormwater drainage system;
- repair road surfaces and sidewalks.
The reconstruction was also aimed to respond to the following challenges:
- creating safe and comfortable conditions for pedestrians and all types of transport;
- preserving the historical image of the street;
- improving conditions for local residents and businesses (convenient sidewalks, availability of permitted parking spaces);
- achieving the best price/quality ratio.
The reconstruction of Zamostianska Street was launched in the spring of 2018. The basic principles of the reconstruction project include:
- maximum preservation of the sidewalk width with the possibility of planting trees;
- matching the number of vehicle lanes to the actual load;
- creating a cycling infrastructure separated from pedestrian traffic;
- ease of dropping off/picking up tram passengers;
- ensuring the maximum number of parking spaces.
As a result of the reconstruction (based on assessment of traffic capacity and existing traffic load), the organization of traffic was changed – the extreme right lane was used for the construction of a bike path and the expansion of the sidewalk with the planting of new trees, and “pockets” were created for parking in places where the street layout allowed for it.
A new tram stop was built at the entrance to the Central City Stadium.
During the reconstruction of tram tracks, the rails were attached to solid concrete slabs laid on a layer of hot asphalt. This reduces vibrations and noise when the tram is moving and ensures high quality and durability of tracks.
For the first time in Ukraine, a solution with a raised roadway at tram stops sections (Vienna-type platform) was used in Zamostianska street. This improves convenience for passengers and encourages drivers to slow down before a stop.
The reconstruction of the street was carried out in two stages. The first stage (from Kotsiubynskoho Avenue to Stetsenka Street) was completed in the autumn of 2018. The second stage (from Stetsenka Street to Striletska Street) was completed in September 2019.
The total cost of work was about UAH 164 million.
