MOSCOW, January 18 (Itar-Tass) — About 5,000 workers clear Moscow railroads of snow this Friday, a railway management source told Itar-Tass.
All the special machines available are used in the work. Most are concentrated on the busiest railroads. About 100,000 cubic metres of snow were removed. More than 4,500 kilometres of tracks were cleared, the source noted.
Moscow trains run according to schedule this Friday. Special attention is paid to platforms and places where suburban trains stop. In snowfalls that lower visibility, train operators are instructed to switch on anti-fog lights on locomotives and give sound signals when approaching stations and crossings.
It is continuing snowing in the Moscow Region. The temperature in the city and in the region is 12–13 degrees below zero.
Moscow authorities ask not to drive personal cars and take public transport in connection with the continuing snowfall and intensive work of snow-removing machines. The average traffic speed in Moscow is 29 km/hour at present.
The level of snow that fell in the city over the past 24 hours is equal to two week's norm. Services dealing with the snowfall are working intensively day and night. Almost 15,000 machines and 40,000 yardmen and road workers clear streets and sidewalks of snow. Tractors are on duty near traffic police posts to help trucks stuck in snow.
