The traffic pattern for the duration of the World Cup and warm-up events has been mapped out with the help of local and metropolitan experts. They studied each of the city’s vehicular pathways in detail, and calculated the capacities of the parking lots along with hourly traffic capacity of roads.
The system will go through a “dress rehearsal” during the warm-up events (April 21 and May 2) as well as during the Russian Cup final. Those matches will be used to work through all the organizational issues of the World Cup. It’s not just a matter of the vehicular and traffic infrastructure, but of the complex operational functionality of the stadium, the placement of fans at the venue in accordance with security and safety requirements, customer services, and the training of volunteers as well.
Special free-of-charge parking lots capable of accommodating over 3,000 cars and over 80 busses will be established around Volgograd for the duration of 2018 World Cup.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup will take place in 11 host cities in Russia from June 14 to July 15.
