The town changes. And it changes the habitual manner of townspeople’s life. Town space is developed, equipped, assigned or stays "wild". Old routes disappear, new ones are created. The townspeople adapt to the changes and they adapt the changes to themselves.
As far back as twenty years ago there was nothing between Akademgorodok and Studgorodok. However, the situation started to change rapidly at the end of the 90s with the beginning of the construction of a new bridge across the river Angara. Besides traffic intersections and the road connecting Akademichesky Bridge with Pervomaisky and Universitetsky districts, the new building of the Molchanov-Sibirsky library and Ice Stadium appeared on yesterday’s open spaces. The people of Akademgorodok, used to walking home from Akademicheskaya railway station, had to create a new route.
That route starts at the railway station, traverses the overpass above "Pervomaisky — Universitetsky" by-pass road, and then along a paved road until it meets the old road connecting Lermontov and Starokuzmikhinskaya Streets. There is a metal fence along the road on the opposite side; a pedestrian walk is situated thirty meters to the right. The uncompleted Ice Stadium towers on a hill overgrown by weeds behind the road and the fence.
