During Friday afternoon, increased traffic is expected at the exit of the capital. Unlike the usual situation, when cars at least drive in the queue, it stood first, said the correspondent of Novinek, who rode the route from IP Pavlov to Bulovka on a scooter.
In the section, which can normally be reached in 20 minutes, drivers have now been stuck for over an hour.
The experimental transport measures, which the municipality introduced in V Holešovičkách Street, behind the Barikádníků Bridge, are to blame. Instead of two continuous lanes in the direction from Argentinská Street, two lanes from the entrance from the Blanka tunnel have been newly established, one of which is a continuous one. Drivers heading from the Argentine have to drive in one lane, which means complications.
The measure aims to alleviate traffic in the Blanka tunnel complex and the adjoining Povltavská street. According to current information to the driver, however, the effect has not yet come. But until the cars from Blanka have to be able to continue in two lanes without being stopped by a traffic light at the crossroads at the entrance to most Barricades in the direction of the center, the problem will be difficult to solve.
The current adjustment is to take three months, then be evaluated and the municipality decides which transport model to maintain on site.
This is not the first time that the metropolis has experimented in this way. In 2017, together with the Technical Administration of Roads (TSK), it introduced an amendment that gave drivers heading from Blanka a lane, which reduced lanes up to several tens of meters further, in the area of the turn to Na Truhlářce Street. The measure did not work.
