METRO MOVEMENT comment:
Analogic problems afflicts not only residents of Giruliai. Also struggling for the elimination of one level crossings and the installation of sound-insulating enclosure are people of Lentvaris, Plunge, Mazeikiai, Siauliai, Amaliai. When the economy grows, rail traffic becomes more intense, speed is increasing and that means more and more threat to the local population.

The problem can only be solved if people from mentioned cities unite their efforts.
