Improvement works will take place on the section from the Third Transport Ring to the Yauza River. The territory of more than 64 hectares will be put in order.

The territory adjacent to the stations of the second Moscow Central Diameter (MCD-2) Serp and Molot, Moscow Tovarnaya and Kalitniki, will undergo a comprehensive improvement. An area of ​​64.18 hectares from the Third Transport Ring to the Yauza River will be put in order. The corresponding decree was signed Sergei Sobyanin

In accordance with the plans for the development of the Moscow transport hub, one of the largest transport interchange hubs (TPU) will be created on the basis of the existing Serp and Molot station of the Gorky direction of the Moscow railway. It will unite two metro lines (Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya and Kalininskaya) and two MCD lines (MCD-2 and MCD-4). New platforms will be built here and the MCD-2 station Moscow Tovarnaya will be moved closer to Rogozhskaya Zastava Square.

According to the project, an elevated pedestrian crossing with a passenger lobby will be built at the Serp and Molot station. It is equipped with elevators, escalators, turnstiles and ticket offices. Along the crossing, it will be possible to safely cross the railway tracks, which now divide the two parts of Zolotorozhsky Val Street. It will provide a comfortable pedestrian connection between the Tagansky and Lefortovo districts. Also, two existing pedestrian crossings at the stations Moscow Tovarnaya (aboveground) and Kalitniki (underground) are being reconstructed.

Near the stations Serp and Molot, Moscow Tovarnaya and Kalitniki, additional pedestrian crossings and traffic lights, bicycle parking, modern stopping points for public transport, taxi ranks and parking for cars will appear. Comfortable sidewalks will be built for pedestrians, and a network of bike paths for cyclists.

In addition, specialists will put in order engineering communications, including rainwater drainage and street lighting.

The formation of the Serp i Molot TPU and the improvement of the territories adjacent to the railway station of the same name and the Moscow Tovarnaya and Kalitniki stations are part of two projects: the development of MCD-2 Kursko-Rizhsky and the launch of MCD-4 Kievsko-Gorkovsky.
