Roadworks at Sheremetyevo Until End of Week

Expect delays driving to Sheremetyevo Airport for the next few days.

Nightly repair work will be carried out at the exit for the airport on Leningradskoye Shosse starting on Tuesday evening, Interfax reported, citing city authorities.

Work will take place between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. and should be completed by Sunday, June 16, a spokesman from the city's transport department said.

In order to ease traffic flow, two of the highway's three lanes will be kept open at all times, although motorists are being warned in advance to factor any potential disruption into their travel plans.

The Aeroexpress train service remains unaffected by the repair work, and passengers traveling to the airport are advised to make use of this service.
