Yekaterinburg Duma addresses concerns related to traffic congestion
Earlier this year, the city of Yekaterinburg explored options regarding increasing its fleet of public transportation vehicles without assistance from the Sverdlovsk regional government. The study concluded that the city's existing power structure and available funds are insufficient to accommodate new buses and trams, Ekburg.ru reports.
In 2009, an agreement was made between the Sverdlovsk regional government and the Yekaterinburg municipality that infrastructure advancement projects such as efforts to alleviate traffic through the broadening of public transportation options was strictly a municipal matter, and no cities within the region would receive funding from the regional government for such initiatives.
At the conclusion of Tuesday's meeting, however, officials from Yekaterinburg agreed to approach the Sverdlovsk regional government to consider taking a more hands-on role in public transportation initiatives within the city, according to Ekburg.ru.
