Muscovites warned of major traffic jams on the roads by the end of the week

In Moscow by the end of the working week can form large tube in connection with the opening of the summer season. TASS said the analyst service “Yandex. Stoppers” Leonid Mednikov.

“Usually the first day of the summer season falls on 1 may, but this year, 8-9 April is expected to anomalous warming, which, according to the service “Yandex.Tube”, can lead to the appearance of holiday traffic this weekend,” said Mednikov.

He explained that with the beginning of the summer season the congestion in Moscow itself did not change, but the main problems occur on country roads. This is due to the fact that their bandwidth is less than that of Moscow’s radial roads, resulting in major traffic jams outside the MKAD in the direction of the region — from Friday afternoon until Saturday evening, and on Sunday from noon to night in the opposite direction.

Mednikov also gave figures for 2014: in the period from may to August the workload runs in the direction in the region on Friday grew 2.7 times (in winter only 1.2 times) and on Sundays in Moscow, the load was 1.8 times higher than the average from Monday to Saturday in winter (two times lower).

In 2016, according to Mednikova, we can expect the growth of congestion in the similar range, since during this time a fundamentally new routes appeared.
