About establishing a special traffic regime in Tbilisi

The planned changes involve banning the movement of M3, N2 and N3 vehicles between the hours of 08:00 - 11:00 and 17:00 - 20:00.

 It is important that the regulation is adopted in such a way as to avoid negative effects

Any decision that has a positive impact on the elimination of traffic jams in the capital area is welcome, but the decisions should not harm business entities, their employees and every citizen/consumer.

The 11:00 – 17:00 time slot will make it physically impossible for the continuity of the product supply chain and the possibility of full delivery.

The supply of fresh products, dairy products and bread, which are delivered in the morning hours, will be particularly negatively affected, and consumers will be deprived of the opportunity to purchase fresh products.
