Tbilisi – Big, Beautiful City  Tbilisi – Big, Beautiful City

Since the industrial revolution the world has witnessed the rapid expansion of its capital cities. For years humans have been flocking to these urban centers in search of jobs, commodities, entertainment and other phenomena that can commonly be found in the major cities.Tbilisi is not an exception.

 

Walking along any street in Tbilisi, the average observer can see that the city of Tbilisi has never been so beautiful as the recent years beautified it, made peachy clean and bright after post-communist turmoil.

One of the priorities should be evaluating pedestrian conditions in those Tbilisi neighborhoods from both a senior’s and kid’s perspective and make engineering changes, such as extending pedestrian crossing times at crosswalks and shortening crossing distances, altering curbs and sidewalks, restricting vehicle turns, and narrowing roadways. In addition to the standard safety treatments, Tbilisi city management may install devices to help lower the speed of motor vehicles around schools. Commonly called speed humps or speed bumps, a speed reducer is raised portion of the roadway accompanied by warning signage that is intended to help slow vehicle speeds.

Tbilisi City management could issue a request for proposals for private companies to provide a bike share system in Tbilisi. Bike share will serve as a new public transportation system, complete with durable bicycles and docking stations to provide convenient and inexpensive mobility twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year.

The most dominant form of Tbilisi transportation is the ‘marshrutka’ (vans on regular routes in town). An elaborate ‘Marshrutka’ system has grown in Tbilisi over the recent years. In addition to the city, several lines also serve the surrounding countryside of Tbilisi. For longer trips outside the city, higher fares are common. There are no predefined stops for the ‘marshrutka’ lines, they are hailed from the streets like taxis and each passenger can exit whenever he/she likes. The system should be worked out for city signs indicating predefined stops for ‘marshrutka’ as well as public transportation ‘marshrutka’ maps.

What is still missing in the beautiful Tbilisi environment: yellow city stickers “watch your step” on the stairs and city park steps, in the buildings, pedestrian crosswalks , this is a real area for improvement. The rest is already done, built, refurbished and I would send special thanks to Tbilisi City Council for making Tbilisi well-groomed, clean and beautiful. Long live Tbiliso!
