Experts say construction of two-story overpass at hippodrome might cause traffic jams in Tbilisi
Construction of two-story overpass without relevant calculations might cause traffic jams in Tbilisi, say the founders of “Partnership for Road Safety” and the expert in transport and road safety Glea Kvashilava while talking about the planned construction of new so called Estacade (or highway bridge) near former Tbilisi hippodrome, at the crossroad of Tsintsadze and Kartozia streets.

According to Gela Kvashilava, the surveys based on which Tbilisi City Hall launched the construction of the overpass are unclear; how the new
road will impact Tbilisi’s landscape and the local population is also under the question.

As the expert says, they have already addressed Tbilisi City Hall; however, they have not been responded yet.

“It has been tested throughout the world that that the construction of overpasses without relevant transport model program might cause traffic jams in Georgia’s capital. The construction of so-called Estacade at the crossroad of above-mentioned streets might cause congestion of cars, that will automatically contribute to more noise and will have negative impact on the environment. We asked Tbilisi City Hall to reveal the surveys based on which they started the construction of new overpass and its predictable influences on the environment, but we have not received any answer yet.”

According to him, construction of new overpass will close the pedestrian’s walking road heading to the former Tbilisi hippodrome, what itself is another big problem. The expert in transport and road safety offers Tbilisi City Hall a solution for the problem and suggests them to develop the public transport and create the quick bus routes.

The demonstration protesting construction of two-story overpass road was held on April 19 at Tbilisi City Hall building, Saakadze Square. Georgian citizens and environmental activists protested construction of new so called Estacada near former Tbilisi hippodrome.

The protesters demanded to stop the construction of the new highway road until the Tbilisi City Hall does not have the experts’ assessment and explanation about how the construction of the new road will reduce the existing traffic congestion in Tbilisi.
