A new junction between the Moscow Ring Road and Ostashkovskoye Highway will open next year.
Work on the reconstruction of four more transport interchanges on the Moscow Ring Road is planned to be completed by mid-2024. “In the coming years, the work at the interchanges of the Moscow Ring Road will be fully completed. Next year, a junction will be opened at the intersection with Ostashkovskoye Highway, in 2023 – with Altufevskoye, and in 2024 – with Verkhniye Polya and Lipetskaya Streets, ”said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for Urban Development Policy and Construction Andrey Bochkarev.
Reconstruction of interchanges will increase the throughput of highways and ensure the separation of traffic flows.
“Over the past 10 years, Moscow has modernized 18 interchanges with the Moscow Ring Road with a total length of more than 150 kilometers. As a rule, in the course of work, the carriageway is expanded due to the construction of side passages and transitional speed lanes, “added Andrei Bochkarev.
Reconstruction and construction of interchanges on the Moscow Ring Road are one of the priorities for the development of the Moscow transport system. This work is synchronized with the reconstruction of outbound highways within the Ring Road and on the territory of the Moscow Region, which can significantly increase their throughput and ensure the full integration of the transport infrastructure of Moscow and the Moscow Region.
In 2011–2020, 1,033.3 kilometers of roads (18 percent of the existing road network), 297 artificial structures and 254 off-street crossings were built in Moscow. In 2021, it is planned to build 84.7 kilometers of roads, 18 artificial structures and 16 pedestrian crossings.
