Sochi to conclude Olympic lanes construction by year end


20:16, June 04, 2013

MOSCOW, June 4 (Xinhua) -- Lanes specially reserved for the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games will be prepared by the end of the year, a steering committee official said Tuesday.

"Only accredited vehicles will be able to travel in the some 370-km long Olympic lanes," Andrei Zhukov, who is in charge of transport issues with the organizing committee, told reporters.

Special signs referring to the Olympics will be implemented on the roads and those who breach the rules will face penalties of 160 U.S. dollars to 320 dollars, the official added.

The lanes will appear on the coast-to-mountain road that connects the Olympic Park coastal cluster with the skiing and sledding venues as well as all routes around Adler train station, which serves the Olympic Park.

It is unclear if they will stretch some 10 km northwest into downtown Sochi.

President Vladimir Putin slashed the delayed infrastructure construction work in an inspection to the Olympic cluster earlier this year.
