Bishkek Now Looks More Like New York City (UPD)
Update: Unfortunately authorities of Bishkek decided to dismantle the street signs installed by Atai Sadybakasov. They refer to the order of the road police. The latter's statement says the street signs installed don't meet national standards. The decision seems controversial at least, taking into account the amount of advertising signs, which stay untouched despite their obvious nonconformity with the standards.
Bishkek now recalls New York City more — no, not completely, of course, but now it has similar street signs. Thanks to Atai Sadybakasov.
The text on the signs is in Kyrgyz and English.
Atai Sadybakasov is an urban activist and it's not the first time he's trying to improve Bishkek at his own expense. He has also mentioned in his Facebook post that recently there were too many talks about the referendum, campaigning, and vain promises, while one doesn't need a campaign to just get things done.
Atai Sadybakasov's previous projects included installation of creative bike parking, signs to tourist attractions, and lighting.
