Yandex.Maps Shows Road Junctions

Internet, May 7, 2008. Yandex adds interactive maps of road junctions to its Moscow mapping service. This new handy tool provides drivers with ready-made road junction solutions and helps planning a trip.

The map shows about a hundred major junctions including all junctions on the Third Ring Road. Some junctions are simply interesting to look at, for instance, the crossing of Lyublinskoe highway and the Moscow Ring Road (MKAD) looks like a fluttering butterfly, and the net of road junction at Taganskaya square may be well known to many Moscow drivers who had ever got lost there. The number of road junction maps will be increasing, and the traffic information will also be constantly updated.

"It is no easy matter to get out of some Moscow junctions even when driving with a GPS navigator or a map," says Evgeny Khramov, head of the Yandex information services. "The interactive maps are clearer. You can look at them before setting off, or print them out and take them with you to avoid any surprises on the road."

Road junctions map is yet another Yandex service designed for drivers. Another Yandex traffic-monitoring tool Yandex.Traffic shows traffic in Moscow, Kiev, Saint Petersburg and Ekaterinburg. In addition, the Traffic 2.0 program was launched this March and Yandex.Auto, a car-for-sale search service, started this April. < class="newsContacts"> Contacts:
