MOSCOW, December 26 (Itar-Tass) — A heavy snowfall has once again provoked heavy traffic jams on Moscow motorways, according to a profile Internet resource which features the situation in the city in an on-line regime.
Moscow's ring motorways have been hardest hit with no potential "green corridors" seen, which might have symbolized normal traffic. Vehicles have been running at a speed of approximately 25-30 kilometers per hour on more than half of the city motorways. One of the worst traffic jams in the area of the Moscow ring road was reported in its eastern and south-eastern parts. One of the blocked roads, which in some places turns into a traffic jam ten kilometers long, runs from Shosse Entuziastov to Kiyevskoye Shosse.
As for the outbound motorways the worst situation was reported in Volgogradsky, Ryazansky Prospects and on Novoryazansky highway - an extension of the two prospects. Driving is particular hard there far as the settlement of Ostrovtsi almost 20 kilometers away from the ring motorway.
The traffic situation in the city in general has been assessed at eight points on a ten-point scale. Weathermen are expecting the snowfall to subside by Monday evening with air temperatures rising to zero point followed by a period of quick thaw.
