Generally, this wide street does not have traffic jams. But just in case, keep in mind: if necessary, you can avoid the traffic jams on the bypass road on the right side of the street. Pay attention, the road passes next to the apartment complex, so try not to exceed the speed.
Turan Avenue. Left Bank
Along Turan avenue many popular shopping centers and restaurants are located. And so here the road is always overloaded.

Shamshi Kaldayakov Street. Right Bank
The residents of the city, especially civil servants, in order to avoid the traffic jams after work, try to go to the right bank across the bridge in Syganak street. But people hardly ever know that going down from the bridge and turning left, it is possible to drive to Tauelsizdik street along the “parking bay”.
Tauelsizdik Avenue. Right Bank
Usually in Tauelsizdik Avenue, before reaching B.Momyshuly street, there is a huge traffic jam. According to our observations, this is due to the fact that the green light on the traffic lights is not lit for a long time. The figure shows the path where it is possible to bypass the traffic jam, not reaching Bauyrzhan Momyshuly street.
Shokhan Ualikhanov Street. Right Bank
All metropolitans are aware that Sh.Ualikhanov street has traffic jams very often. And all because of a few shopping centers such as “Artem” and “Shapagat” located at the end of this street. In order not to get stuck, you can turn at Omarov street. Just keep in mind that this street is very narrow.
