“THE DIFFERENT DANUBE" WORKSHOP, GIURGIU UMM STUDENTS' WORK

“The Different DANUBE” - urban - regional and landscape planning at Giurgiu-Ruse cross-border territory, organized within DANUrB project (Giurgiu, dec. 2017), MMU students focussed on connectivity, mobility and accessibility issues as core prerequisites for the creation of a regional network aiming at strengthening the “Danube” cultural identity and solidarity. The main concern of their work was, beyond the regenerative planning and redesign as touristic objectives of different sites in Giurgiu, the multimodal connectivity, along and cross-Danube, at different territorial levels – European (Danube Region), national, regional, local. MMU students conceptually approached a project for the transformation of Giurgiu Railway station in a main intermodal hub on the TEN-T rail corridor IX. They also studied solutions for the local connectivity and accessibility improvement, with a special focus on the infrastructure networks and facilities for pedestrians and cyclists. A new bridge for non-motorized travels over Cama channel was proposed, improving the connectivity of the cycling network and developing a cultural route towards the site of “Groapa de Cenușă” on which a new green and solar powered garden and promenade area was proposed. A Cross-Danube cycling connection and related belle-vue platforms, between Giurgiu (Romania) and Ruse (Bulgaria), has also been addressed by MMU students, with a possible economic solution of a light metal infrastructure hanged on “Prieteniei” Bridge heavy structure.

The Giurgiu"North Railway Station" (G-NRS) project consists in proposing the redevelopment of the North Railway Station as a main intermodal hub and the main rail gateway of the Giurgiu city. The opportunity of this projects results from the future development of the TENTH rail Corridor IX on the current railway station is located on. In this context Giurgiu North Railway Station will become the main rail connector hub of the city to the European and national streams, and in particular to the European Region of Danube. The intermodal hub will thus be the main provider of rail, high-accessibility at the territorial level. For the optimal valorization of this privileged accessibility, we propose that the area around the station becomes a business & commercial urban pole gathering activities which polarizes interest at the regional, national and continental level.
