Roads to Be­come Safer

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - BUSINESS - Kamola Ibrag­i­mova

The govern­ment of Uzbek­istan has adopted a pro­gram of mea­sures to take stock of the in­stalled road signs, in­for­ma­tion signs, other tech­ni­cal means of traf­fic reg­u­la­tion.

The doc­u­ment pro­vides for a phased re­place­ment of ob­so­lete road signs with mod­ern ones with a high-in­ten­sity coat­ing.

Spe­cially cre­ated work­ing groups will con­duct, un­til Jan­uary 1, 2018, an in­ven­tory in this area, pay­ing spe­cial at­ten­tion to pro­hibitory and pre­scrip­tive road signs for the ne­ces­sity and va­lid­ity of their in­stal­la­tion. On the ba­sis of the data re­ceived, by Jan­uary 1, 2019, it is planned to cre­ate a sin­gle elec­tronic data­base of road signs, in­for­ma­tion signs and other tech­ni­cal means for reg­u­lat­ing traf­fic.

At the be­gin­ning of next year, spe­cial­ists will be­gin re­plac­ing ex­ist­ing signs on pub­lic roads of in­ter­na­tional and na­tional im­por­tance with uni­fi­ca­tion un­der the size of 900x900 mm, and on pub­lic roads of lo­cal im­por­tance, in­ter­farm ru­ral roads, city streets, ur­ban set­tle­ments, vil­lages and vil­lages 700x700 mm. This process is planned to be com­pleted no ear­lier than 2021.

In ad­di­tion, spe­cial reg­u­la­tory doc­u­ments will be de­vel­oped, reg­u­lat­ing the strength­en­ing of signs and signs at an al­ti­tude, pro­vid­ing con­di­tions for their ap­par­ent vis­i­bil­ity, tak­ing into ac­count re­mote­ness from the car­riage­way and the fea­tures of closely lo­cated ob­jects.

In par­al­lel, the ma­te­rial and tech­ni­cal base of the core or­ga­ni­za­tions will be strength­ened. It is planned to pur­chase equip­ment, spe­cial equip­ment for the pro­duc­tion of traf­fic signs, in­for­ma­tion signs, other tech­ni­cal means of traf­fic reg­u­la­tion, means of ap­ply­ing sus­tain­able road mark­ing, en­sur­ing a long pe­riod of its op­er­a­tion.

In par­tic­u­lar, by the end of next year, 14 spe­cial­ized road mark­ing ve­hi­cles, two sets of ther­mo­plas­tic equip­ment for mark­ing road mark­ing with a ca­pac­ity of 4 tons per hour, as well as three sets of equip­ment for the pro­duc­tion of road mark­ing paints with a pro­duc­tiv­ity of 3 tons per hour are planned to be pur­chased.
