14.03.2014. Kazan to announce integrated traffic management scheme design competition

Kazan authorities would soon launch a competition to design an integrated traffic management scheme, Kazan Executive Committee Transport Chief Aidar Abdulkhakov told journalists.

Today, Kazan hosts a seminar dealing with traffic management scheme design, attended by Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin.

The list of participants includes Tatarstan and Kazan authorities, the UN Development Programme Directorate, and experts from leading national design and research organisations specialising in the problem.

An integrated road traffic management scheme is a key document, containing the complete set of long-term measures to help increasing Kazan transport systems efficiency.

The traffic management scheme is a document that will be a solution to managing citys traffic without large funding, given the increased car numbers, in the next 5-6 years. The programme includes transportation area development, road traffic management, traffic lights control, implementing intelligent transport system, et cetera, A. Abdulkhakov said. The purpose of the seminar was to finalise specifications for the traffic management scheme project, he said.

A total of 25 million roubles, 12 million being provided by the UN Development Programme Directorate, is to be allocated by the city, the official recalled.

Mayor of Kazan said that the citys road traffic system had been drastically improved during the preparation for the 2013 Universiade sporting event.

It can, however, only become a short letup if we do not design an integrated traffic management scheme, citys chief pointed up.
