Chisinau City Hall informs that the roundabout from the intersection Moscow blvd and Alecu Russo street follows be replaced by a smart traffic light, in order to speed up the traffic in the area.
An announcement in this regard was made by Mr. Adrian Boldurescu, the head of the General Department for Public Transport and Communication during the meeting of the municipal services. According to the head of the Department, a feasibility study of the transport flows and pedestrian flows showed the traffic light profitability, by halving the waiting time in traffic.
The study shows that the installation of the smart traffic light objective at the intersection of Moscow blvd with A. Russo street, would allow the proportional use of its capacity, given that there are several educational institutions nearby and pedestrian crossings which affect the transport flow.
Mr. Adrian Boldurescu said that the smart traffic light could be installed in spring, approximately in May.
In this context, the Mayor, Mr. Ion Ceban, asked the General Department for Public Transport and Communication to offer solutions for traffic flow and for other problematic intersections in the capital.
