"It is socially unfair": the expert about paid journey of intersections — Rambler News Service


Photo: globallookpress.com/Christoph Hardt the Idea to enter in Russia paid journey of intersections is unfair from the social point of view as in the country much lower density of a road network, than in the USA or Europe because of what drivers are often forced to go on roads with traffic jams owing to lack of alternative options of journey. The partner of the analytical agency "Avtostat" Igor Morzharetto told RNS about it. "To introduce a certain system of gradation to push the person to go on this or that road or not to go because of load — it is not absolutely fair. The matter is that we have density of a road network less, than in the USA, figuratively speaking, by 10 times, it is less than in Europe four times. It turns out, our people often go on the road where traffic jams not because they like to be pushed in traffic jams, and just because there is no other road … I read out an idea with paid intersections unfair at least from the social point of view" — the expert told. He added that now in a number of the European countries the system of collection of a transport tax proceeding from that how many kilometers were passed by the driver and on what types of roads — loaded or high-speed is tested. Earlier RIA Novosti with reference to the representative of the National technological initiative of Avtonet reported that in Russia it is planned to make an experiment with introduction of a fare of the intersection or section of the road in certain hours. Such measure is allegedly designed to solve a problem of traffic jams in the country. The representative of the organization explained that introduction of paid intersections will push people more carefully to plan the trips therefore about 10% of drivers will choose an alternative route, "which will be, most likely, longer than if to pass along a paid route if there is no stopper". Avtoneta added that the initiative is planned to be tested within the Smart City project in one of Russian regions which will be defined by 2020. Most likely, it can be introduced in Lipetsk, Nizhny Novgorod or Ulyanovsk. Earlier in Avtodoroye Ukraine and M-11 Moscow-St. Petersburg since April 15 reported about growth of fares on paid sections of the highways M-4 "Don", M-3. Fare was inflation-adjusted. Tariffs for cars grew on average by the sum from 5 to 10 rub, and up to 40 rub for trucks.
