MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. Temporary bus lanes for buses carrying football fans will be introduced in Moscow ahead of the 2017 Confederations Cup and the 2018 World Cup, head of Moscow Traffic Control Center Vadim Yuryev said.

“During such huge sporting events transport facilities are very important, traffic should be properly controlled and the fans should be coordinated. They need to be provided with an opportunity to get around the city comfortably and quickly. FIFA always demands that host cities establish passenger transport control system,” Yuryev stressed.

As part of the preparations for the two tournaments, traffic cameras, detectors and displays are planned to be installed on Moscow’s streets to help organize and streamline traffic. The detectors and cameras will be used to monitor traffic situation in real-time mode.

Moscow public transportation will also launch a new information system in the run-up to the 2017 Confederations Cup and the 2018 World Cup. All announcements on Moscow’s subway trains will be translated into English.

The Confederations Cup will take place from June 17 to July 2, 2017, while the FIFA World Cup will be held from June 14 to July 15, 2018.
