Wien river to get a terrace

The city of Vienna plans to build three terraces along the river Wien valley. The zones will be literally built over the underground line. 2,500 square metres of additional recreation areas will thus be created between the stations Pilgramgasse and Nevillebrücke.

Terrace number one will be built by the U4 staircase Ramperstorffergasse at the station Pilgramgasse and will cover an area of 1,000 square metres.

Additionally, the adjacent area will be made more attractive. For example, there is the plan to build a pavement across the Wien river, which will connect the districts of Margareten and Mariahilf.

The second recreation zone will be put up in front of Reinprechtsdorfer Brücke and cover an area of 500 square metres.

The third zone, which will cover an area of 1,000 square metres, will be built just before Nevillebrücke. The bridge has recently been blocked for the traffic and converted into a recreation area.

The zones, which are equipped with a lot of wood, green area and seats will be accessible throughout the whole year.

The costs for the whole project were estimated to be around five million Euros. However, it needs to be clarified how much both districts will contribute to the project. The construction is currently being planned in detail.

City councillor Maria Vassilakou argued yesterday (Wed) that there is certainly need for action in this area. There is only seven percent of free space in Margareten and three percent in Mariahilf, compared to 20 percent in the third district.
