World-famous British architect Norman Foster has designedr bus stops for Astana and Almaty, which are already being put in place, Tengrinews reports citing MIR24.

Norman Foster is the winner Pritzker Architecture Prize and Stirling Prize and is one of the most renowned architects of our time.

The British architect is behind such Astana buildings as the Palace of Peace and Accord pyramid, Khan Shatyr shopping and entertainment center and the Library of First President.

The new bus stops of his design are made as street furniture with social purpose. There is nothing superfluous: a roof to shelter from bad weather, a bench, a bulletin board, and billboards. Such bus stops have already been erected in major world capitals.

The new stops will not be installed using the money from the state budget.

As for the old bus stops, the city administrations believe that they are not safe and spoil the aesthetic perception of the cities. About 900 old bus stops have been dismantled across the country already.
