The total length of reconstructed road infrastructure in this section is 1200.95 m – a new asphalt coat was laid, a combined pedestrian and cycle path was built all along the street. The width of the roadway is 7 meters. As the result of the project 4 bus stops were installed and 14 linden trees were planted. All the utility lines were renewed in the mentioned section of Rigas street: water supply pipes, sanitary and stormwater sewerage systems, 10kV cable link, also new light posts with smart LED street lights were installed.
