Cars are banned as pedestrians re-claim the street

During Street Delivery, art will descend on the street with cultural events taking place that aim to draw attention to the fact that the city is the joint responsibility of those who live in it.
Furthermore, the event calls for the restoration of 25 historic buildings along this route, which include the Central School, Anglican Church, Dimitrie Sturdza house, Ion Mincu house and Hotel Ambassador.
“Sibiu is a city that has undergone extraordinary development precisely because it turned to culture. Bucharest seems to bet less on culture. We are the victims of this situation because our habitat is being destroyed. I am now fighting with the despair of an animal whose habitat is being destroyed,” said culture minister Alexandru Paleologu, who attended the event launch.
In Bucharest there is currently 2 sqm of green space per inhabitant, while the average under European standards should be 12 sqm. There is also a huge number of cars and few parking spaces available (16 cars per parking space), as a result of which many drivers park their cars on the sidewalk, forcing pedestrians dangerously onto the road.
