Traffic Jams Ranked

Traffic jams on Varshavskoye Shosse frequently stretch eight kilometers, making it the city's most clogged road in September, Komsomolskaya Pravda reported, citing Yandex.

Sections of Shosse Entuziastov, Kashirskoye Shosse, Ryazansky Prospekt and Kutuzovsky Prospekt were also among the top five most traffic-

afflicted thoroughfares. A "classic bottleneck" causes the problems on Varshavskoye Shosse between Ulitsa Bolshaya Ordynka and Kashirskoye Shosse, which are exacerbated by a trolleybus stop and a pedestrian streetlight at its intersection with Kashirskoye Shosse, said Leonid Melnikov of Yandex's analytical center.

A 9 billion ruble ($278 million) reconstruction project planned for next year will add bus turnouts and pedestrian underpasses, dramatically increasing Varshavskoye Shosse's capacity, a city transportation official said.
