A brand new "Intelligent Transport System" will be created in Moscow within three years, a source in the City Hall said on Monday.

A brand new "Intelligent Transport System" will be created in Moscow within three years, a source in the City Hall said on Monday.

The system will comprise navigation information services from Russia's Glonass navigation system as well as a photo and video surveillance net for monitoring road traffic.

It will take no more than three years to create and fully implement the new transport system throughout Moscow, the source said.

A similar transportation system will also be implemented on the Moscow Ring Road (MKAD) that encircles the entire city.

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin has pledged to solve the Russian capital's transportation problems. When appointed, he said he would take "extraordinary measures" to eliminate traffic jams. President Dmitry Medvedev has said he will personally oversee the efforts.

Sobyanin replaced long-serving Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov, fired in late September by Medvedev over a "loss of confidence." Luzhkov had in particular been criticized for his inability to cope with Moscow's notorious traffic jams.
