Astana plans to introduce paid entrance in spring 2017 – Igenberdinov
“We have already considered various technical decisions on paid entrance to the city using modern IT-solutions. The paid entrance will be in the morning from 7:00 to 10:00 am inbound directions: Kokshetau, Kostanai, Pavlodar, Karaganda, Kosshy, Korgalzhyn”, – said B. Igenberdinov.
According to the director of the Transport Company “Astana LRT” Rustam Halilyev such measures will motivate people to use buses, relieving the streets of Astana and parking space.
“The aim is to reduce the load during the peak period”, – said R. Halilyev.
Every day more than 75 thousand cars enter the city, 30-40% – in the morning from the suburbs.
