The full ring road will redistribute the flow of transit traffic to bypass the city and reduce traffic jams in Kiev.
Such a method to decongest the streets of the capital offered in the air ObozTV designer, urbanist Dmitry Makogon. The problem is long overdue: Kiev even fell in the rating of cities with the most congestion, finishing third in Europe and 12th worldwide.

“There is such a factor avtomobilebudivny. When a person has his car, but he sometimes uses it and sometimes does not use. In Kiev, in Ukraine, this ratio is 95%! That is, if a person has a car, it is almost everywhere on her travels. In European cities this ratio is about 50%. That means half of the movement is other means of transport: by bike, on foot… And why our people who have a car, everywhere they are? Because there is no alternative“, – he stressed.
