The area next to the Rizhsky railway station will be improved. Its area will be 70.32 hectares. The corresponding decree was signed Sergei Sobyanin

On the basis of the Rizhsky railway station and the Rizhskaya MCD-2 stopping point, in accordance with the plans for the development of the Moscow transport hub, one of the largest transport interchange hubs will be created. It will unite the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya and Bolshaya Koltsevaya metro lines, as well as three Moscow central diameters: MCD-2, MCD-3 and MCD-4.

According to the planning project, a new Rizhskaya railway platform with a concourse will be built here, from where passengers can comfortably go to the station of the same name on the Big Circle Metro Line.

Pedestrian paths will be built on the approaches to the Rizhsky railway station. One will lead from Prospect Mira to Vodoprovodny lane (width – 15–20 meters), the other – along Prospect Mira from the exit from the underground pedestrian crossing to the exit from the Krestovsky overpass (width – six meters). Another track will run from the Rizhskaya metro station of the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line to Vodoprovodny lane (the width will be four to ten meters). And finally, the fourth – along the exit from the Third Transport Ring to Prospekt Mira (width – three meters, reconstruction of the sidewalk is envisaged).

In addition, 2nd Mytishchinskaya Street is being reconstructed. It is also planned to build a section in the area of ​​the exit from the Krestovsky overpass to Vodoprovodny lane.

Bicycle parking and taxi stands will appear at the entrance to the station. For the comfort and convenience of passengers, canopies will be made that will protect from snow and rain. The territory will be landscaped. Additional trees and shrubs will be planted here, lawns and flower beds will be laid out. All engineering communications will be put in order. Rainwater drainage and outdoor lighting networks will be built.

The creation of the Rizhskaya TPU and the improvement of the territory near the Rizhsky railway station are part of the projects for launching the lines MCD-3 “Leningradsko-Kazansky”, MCD-4 “Kievsko-Gorkovsky” and the high-speed railway line “Moscow – St. Petersburg”.
