Jablunkovská Street was also included in the sidewalk reconstruction plan this year. The current pavement surface, including the base, should be removed and replaced with modern interlocking paving.However, during a detailed analysis of the current state, it was found that birches growing directly in the sidewalk, especially their roots, very significantly disturb the current surface and unfortunately do not allow its full reconstruction.
“I am definitely not in favor of felling mature trees, however, the situation in Jablunkovská Street will probably require it,” says Jan Mikulecký, the councilor for the environment, adding: “We addressed the inhabitants of the street who are directly affected by the reconstruction of the sidewalk. I would not like to interfere in their immediate surroundings without proper consultation. “
The inhabitants of Jablunkovská were asked to state whether they agreed or disagreed with the possible felling of trees in front of their houses. “Most of them were for,”confirms representative Jan Mikulecký, “and therefore in the coming months the trees will be felled and the pavement surface completely reconstructed.”
Due to the fact that the current birches provide a small shading of the gardens from the prefabricated houses, several new trees will be incorporated into the new sidewalk, which will provide the inhabitants of the family houses with a certain form of privacy. And the representative Mikulecký adds: “Such species will be selected that will not excessively pollute the surroundings and the hoods of parked cars. The trees will be planted with professional consideration so that their roots do not disturb the pavement surface in the future.”
