Krasnodar, 12 April. The road traffic management will reportedly be changed in Sochi before the upcoming summer season.
The draft document has been developed by the city’s Department for Transport and Road Facilities. It plans to organize parking spaces and two three-metre-wide transport lanes at Nesebrskaya Street which should help accelerate the speed of the transport flow and avoid chaotic parking of cars.
In Adler, three parking lots have been planned together with the Association of Tourist Agencies to prevent tour buses from using public parking spaces. The special parking lots will be located by Burgas Spa, near Adlerkurort, and by the exit to Adler Railway Station. Tour buses coming to the city from other regions should bear in mind this new scheme. Besides, it is recommended that all loading and unloading works are performed at night. In residential neighbourhoods, all deliveries should be completed by 11 pm.
“Many visitors from neighbouring regions will come by own cars, which is why an integrated approach to road traffic management is needed. [I request that] projects meant to reduce the tension of the road network and avoid traffic jams be developed in all city districts suffering from transport congestions and heavy traffic, and to get them approved by the Road Traffic Safety Committee,” Sochi Mayor Aleksei Kopaigorodsky said.
