Press Service of the Mayor and the Moscow Government
The Mayor of Moscow spoke about the implementation of the Moscow transport program.
This year, more than 80 kilometers of roads will be built in the capital, including overpasses, junctions and tunnels. This was reported in an interview to the TV Center TV channel Sergei Sobyanin.
“At the same time, the BCL sections will be commissioned: western, south-western, southern. The Moscow Central Diameters continue to develop. That is, the entire transport program is in full swing at the limit of the builders’ capabilities. This is understandable, because, of course, transport will always be in the first place in a big city and the solution of these problems is of great importance, ”added the Mayor of Moscow.
The Big Circle Metro Line is one of the main projects of the Moscow transport system. 12 BCL stations have already been opened. There are plans to open 10 more this year.
When the construction is fully completed, the length of the new ring will be 70 kilometers. It will have 31 stations and three depots. From the stations of the Big Circle Line, it will be possible to transfer to 20 stations of other metro lines, for this you will not have to go to the city center. In addition, there will be transfers to the MCC, MCD-1 and MCD-2, as well as to other railway lines.
Movement along the first diameters – MCD-1 “Belorussko-Savelovsky” (Odintsovo – Lobnya) and MCD-2 “Kursko-Rizhsky” (Nakhabino – Podolsk) – were launched in 2019. Now 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 Domodedov).
