Moscow urges locals not to drive ahead of World Cup

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

Moscow: Moscow authorities are pleading with locals not to drive in the runup to Thursday's World Cup opening match to avoid causing gridlock in the city.

The Russian capital of 12 million people is creaking at the seams as it starts receiving hundreds of thousands visitors for the month-long football final.
Fans from the 32 participating nations will almost all either be based in Moscow or fly in and out of the sprawling and chronically congested megalopolis to the other 11 host venues. Moscow officials had insisted for months that they had planned everything out to make sure the city functioned like clockwork once the games begin.

They sounded less confident on Tuesday. The city's transportation department said some of Moscow's busiest roads will have to be closed off.
