The Prime Minister of Kyrgyzstan Sapar Isakov ordered to improve the transport communication on Bishkek-Osh road and render assistance to the victims of a strong wind in Talas, Jalal-Abad and Osh regions. Department of Public Relations and Media of the government reported.
As noted, the Minister of Emergency Situations Kubatbek Boronov told at a meeting with the Prime Minister that the main causes of traffic jams on mountain roads were the unpreparedness of individual drivers of heavy trucks for operation in winter conditions. In particular, the absence of winter tires, chains and cables on cars. A low culture of driving of some motorists led to traffic jams.
Clearing works were carried out untimely on some sections of the road.
The minister said that artillery shelling for the forced descent of avalanches on potentially dangerous sections of Bishkek-Osh highway was held. Heating points for drivers at Aral point of Toktogul district of Jalal-Abad region and Sosnovka point of Zhaiyl district of Chui region were organized.
