Krasnodar, 6 September – Yug Times. The end of August in Sochi was marked by endless traffic jams along the only road that connects the seaside resort with the rest of the country, A-147 Dzhubga - the border with Abkhazia. The fact is that the jams were mostly formed at the exit from the city - due to the end of the season of summer vacations and the holidaymakers’ heading for their homes.

The record traffic jam at the exit from the city was registered on August 26. According to the Chernomorie State Company, the peak traffic on the A-147 motor road was 46,707 vehicles a day, or nearly eight times more than the vehicle flow designed for motor roads of the second technical category (6,000 vehicles a day). Thus, the overload of the road reached 678.5% at the end of August.

According to the AvtoSpetsTsentr press service, such record traffic jams were in part related to the fact that the Krasnodar resorts were one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Russia this year. Experts stated that the average daily flow along the A-147 road in August exceeded 27,000 vehicles. In addition to that, the road was regularly blocked by landslides, which either made all the moving vehicles halt or the road companies introduce the reverse pattern. What was more, this road was overwhelmed with serious accidents because of its complicacy with lots of turns and unregulated pedestrian crossings.

“When the school year starts and the number of tourists significantly declines, the situation will of course get stabilized,” Vladimir Savchenkov, Flai Plening General Director, comments. “However, Sochi - like any other world-class resort - is rapidly developing, and it needs more and more deliveries of building materials, equipment and agricultural products, whose delivery is complicated so far.”
