Every year, an average of 10 metro stations are commissioned in the capital.
A new public transport system is being created in the capital. It includes railway lines that are being transformed into the Moscow Central Circle (MCC), Moscow Central Diameters (MCD), as well as metro and ground transport. He told about this in an interview with the TV channel “Russia 24” Sergei Sobyanin…
“We are creating a new transport framework. There used to be a small subway line of 12 stations, we launched the MCC (this is an overground metro, consisting of almost 30 stations) and are preparing to launch 31 BCL stations – another large ring. Thus, the Moscow metro will have three circular lines. BCL will be the largest and most efficient in terms of transplantation. It will connect the middle part of Moscow, make it possible to move from district to district, change from one metro line to another, before reaching the center, to the Circle Line, ”said the Mayor of Moscow.
According to him, during the construction of the BCL, technical solutions are being laid that will make it possible to connect to it the Rublevo-Arkhangelskaya (at the Narodnoe Opolchenie station) and Troitskaya lines (at the Novatorskaya station), a promising branch to Biryulyovo and Shcherbinka (at the Klenovy Boulevard station “).
“If we take into account how many stations we plan to open by the end of the year, then in 10 years 100 stations have been added to the Moscow Metro,” Sergei Sobyanin said. – Consider that in this way we introduce an average of 10 stations per year. This is just a gigantic volume by any measure. “
The Moscow Central Circle has become one of the key elements of the transport system. It is used by about half a million passengers every day. It not only made it possible to connect districts of the capital distant from each other, but also removed the load from the radial directions of the metro.
“And today, residents of some districts can no longer imagine life without the MCC,” said the Moscow Mayor.
The next major innovation in recent years is the Moscow Central Diameters. With their appearance, residents of the Moscow region were able to get to the capital and back faster and more comfortably.
“New first-class stations, new rolling stock, dedicated tracks, high frequency of movement, a tariff system that allows free commuting from electric train to metro – all this, in fact, makes MCD a 100% surface metro,” Sergei Sobyanin said.
He added that after the completion of the reconstruction and after the opening of all MCDs, Moscow’s railways from the point of view of integration into the city transport system will take one of the first places in the world in terms of passenger traffic.
