Snowfall will last until the noon on Tuesday, so, Moscow mayor’s office ask drivers not to drive in the city without extraordinary reasons and to take public transport that operates without any breaks. Despite early morning the traffic in the city is already intensive. According to Internet resources, traffic situation will deteriorate in the next few hours.
More than 10,000 snowploughs are working on the roads. “Special machinery has treated the roads with anti-icing agents at 11.00 pm Moscow time on Monday and went out for snow removal at night,” the mayor’s office noted, adding that now “an army” of street sweepers is cleaning up walkways leading to the metro, social facilities and public transport stops.
The mayor’s office asked drivers to take work of utility workers with attention and observe parking rules and road signs.
A wave cyclone formed slightly to the north of Tver, a Volga River city situated 158 kilometres away from Moscow, triggered the spring snowfall. Snowfall will be getting weaker and coming to a close, as it is moving south-eastwards in the course of the day. The air temperature in the Russian capital is minus four degrees Celsius, conditions for slippery roads and snow drifts persist.
