It is also planned to build a pedestrian bridge in the area of the Khomutovsky impasse and a safe passage through Masha Poryvaeva and Kalanchevskaya streets.
An additional exit from the Komsomolskaya metro station will be built in Moscow – this is part of the development project for Kalanchevskaya station of the second Moscow Central Diameter (MCD-2). In addition, a pedestrian bridge will appear in the area of the Khomutovsky deadlock.
“An additional, second, exit from the Komsomolskaya metro station will be created and the pedestrian zone along Kalanchevskaya street will be improved. It is proposed to build an off-street pedestrian crossing, which will ensure safe traffic through Masha Poryvaeva and Kalanchevskaya streets and through the railway tracks of the Kursk direction of the Moscow railway, ”said the chairman
She added that the implementation of the project will improve the speed, safety and quality of passenger traffic. The path to the station platforms will become more convenient with the addition of sidewalks, cycle paths and an off-street pedestrian crossing. It will connect the lobby with the exit to the platforms of the Kalanchevskaya station, make the intersection of Masha Poryvaeva and Kalanchevskaya streets, as well as the railways of the Kursk direction of the Moscow railway safe.
The project provides for the construction of road sections under the Kalanchevsky overpass and the extension of the Kalanchevsky deadlock, as well as a section of the road network connecting the Kalanchevsky deadlock and Novaya Basmannaya street. A pedestrian bridge will appear in the alignment of the Khomutovsky deadlock.
“Now the section from the Kursk railway station to the Rizhskaya overpass is one of the narrowest points of the Moscow railway. Over the next three years, two more main routes will appear here in addition to the two existing ones. If now trains of the second Moscow central diameter run at ten-minute intervals, then after the implementation of the project this interval will be reduced to five minutes. In the future, this measure will also allow high-speed trains to pass through the city and quickly redistribute between Moscow stations, ”said Denis Vlasov, Deputy Head of the Transport and Engineering Center of the Moscow General Planning Institute.
Over the past 10 years, the metro network in Moscow has expanded significantly. Since 2011, 305 kilometers of lines, 148 stations, three additional metro lobbies, the Moscow Central Ring and Moscow Central Diameters, as well as 10 electric depots have been commissioned. The subway map has almost doubled. In 2018, an absolute record was set in the entire history of the Moscow Metro – 17 new stations and about 33 kilometers of lines were put into operation.
