To stop high-speed trains, TPUs “Zelenograd”, “Petrovsko-Razumovskaya”, “Rizhskaya” and “Leningradskiy” will be created.

Moscow will have four transport interchange hubs (TPU) to stop high-speed trains heading to St. Petersburg. These are Zelenograd, Petrovsko-Razumovskaya, Rizhskaya of the promising third Moscow central diameter (MCD-3) and Leningradsky. Thanks to TPU, passengers from anywhere in the city will be able to choose a convenient and fast route to get to the promising high-speed specialized railway Moscow – St. Petersburg. Sergei Sobyanin told about this on his page in the social network “VKontakte”.


The first high-speed railway line Moscow – St. Petersburg will reduce travel time between the two cities to 2.5 hours. Was previously agreed a project for introducing changes involving the construction of a highway into the territorial planning scheme of the Russian Federation.

The construction of a high-speed specialized railway is planned to be combined with the reconstruction of stopping points and the modernization of the track facilities of the Oktyabrskaya Railway as part of the creation of MCD-3 “Leningradsko-Kazansky”. The total length of the route will be about 680 kilometers. Of these, 43 kilometers will pass within Moscow.

The first diameters – MCD-1 “Belorussko-Savelovsky” (Odintsovo – Lobnya) and MCD-2 “Kursko-Rizhsky” (Nakhabino – Podolsk) – were opened in the fall of 2019. These are 132 kilometers of roads and 60 stations, from 20 of which you can change to the metro, the Moscow Central Ring and the radial directions of the Moscow railway.

At the moment, the design and construction of three diameters is underway: MCD-3 “Leningradsko-Kazansky” (from Zelenograd to Ramenskoye), MCD-4 “Kievsko-Gorkovsky” (from Aprelevka to Zheleznodorozhny) and MCD-5 “Yaroslavsko-Paveletsky” (from Pushkin to Domodedovo).

TPU “Zelenograd”

TPU Zelenograd will primarily be convenient for residents of Zelenograd, Kurkino and Khimki regions. Here passengers will be able to transfer to MCD-3 “Leningradsko-Kazansky”, suburban trains and ground transport. From here it is also convenient to get to Sheremetyevo Airport, Technopolis “Moscow” and the National Research University “MIET”.

TPU “Petrovsko-Razumovskaya”

TPU “Petrovsko-Razumovskaya” is the largest hub where it will be possible to transfer to MCD-1 and MCD-3, Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya and Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya metro lines and ground transport. It is easy to build a route from TPU to the Severnye Vorota international bus station, the Moscow City business center, the Ostankino television center, the Skolkovo innovation center or the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.

TPU “Rizhskaya”

TPU “Rizhskaya” will consist of two passenger lobbies. It will be possible to get on the metro in just two to four minutes thanks to the “dry feet” transition. Passengers will be able to transfer to three diameters at once – MCD-2, MCD-3 and MCD-4, as well as to the Kaluga and Bolshaya ring metro lines. From here it will be convenient to get to Zaryadye Park, the Moscow City complex, VDNKh and the Tretyakov Gallery. Moreover, on MCD-4 passengers will reach seven central metropolitan stations.

The stop of high-speed trains in the center of the capital at the Leningradskiy TPU is especially convenient for transit passengers. There are three stations here at once, there will be a transfer to MCD-2, MCD-4 and MCD-5, as well as to Sokolnicheskaya and Koltsevaya metro lines. At the same time, some of the high-speed trains will depart from the Rizhskaya TPU, and the rest – from the Leningradsky TPU.
