Opening the meeting of the Coordination Council, Marat Khusnullin noted that, thanks to the coordinated actions of the Government and the leadership of Moscow and the Moscow Region, a unified transport system with an improved quality of services provided to the population is being steadily formed in the Moscow region.

“In 2021, more than 400 km of highways were built in the Moscow region, the construction of the Central Ring Road, the most important project in the country and especially important for this region, was completed. In Moscow, the transport framework of high-speed urban highways continues to form, the railway network of the Moscow Central Circle is expanding, and new interchanges and overpasses are opening in the Moscow Region. Such a rapid development of the transport system as a whole contributes to the accelerated socio-economic growth of the region, ”said the Deputy Prime Minister.

Speaking about plans for the development of transport infrastructure, Governor of the Moscow Region Andrei Vorobyov thanked the Government of the Russian Federation for support in the development of the Moscow transport hub. This year alone, we managed to jointly open 13 large road facilities in the Moscow region. Among them are those that were built within the framework of the presidential project: the Central Ring Road and the Repinskaya interchange in Khimki, the overpass in Odintsovo, the bypass of Kolomna, the bridge in Voskresensk. By the end of the year, 9 more facilities are planned to be opened in the region.

The Central Ring Road passes through the territory of 13 urban districts of the Moscow region, bypassing large settlements and connecting the main outbound routes, including Kashirskoye, Simferopol, Kiev, Minsk, Volokolamskoye, Leningradskoye, Dmitrovskoye and Yaroslavskoye highways.

After the opening of the Central Ring Road, the congestion of the road network of cities near Moscow decreased by 10% and may decrease in the future by up to 30%. Transit transport has been withdrawn from Bronnitsy, Noginsk, Iksha, Zvenigorod. Residents of the region can now save travel time between cities and get to the airport faster. For example, you can get from Istra to Noginsk in 1.15 hours instead of 2.5 before the opening of the Central Ring Road, and from Zvenigorod to Domodedovo airport – in 1 hour instead of 2.

Within the framework of the meeting, the issue of the development of railway communication was also discussed.

“We expect that in 2023 we will be able to launch MCD-3 and MCD-4,” said Andrei Vorobyov. “For our part, we are preparing all access roads and everything related to infrastructure and convenience, the presence of people in the adjacent territories.”

In this regard, the plans of the Moscow Region government include the further construction of new overpasses through the MCD.

Talking about plans for the development of a rail transport frame, the participants discussed the prospects for expanding the Moscow metro network to the Moscow region.

When discussing the issue of synchronizing the activities of the federal project “Development of the railway infrastructure of the Central Transport Hub” with measures for the construction of overpasses and transport interchange hubs, Marat Khusnullin drew attention to the need to speed up the receipt of the conclusions of Glavgosekpertiza. He instructed the Ministry of Transport, together with Russian Railways, to draw up, together with the governments of Moscow and the Moscow Region, a list of railway facilities of the Central Technical University, ensuring the actualization of the cost of the facilities being sold and sources of funding. “We are implementing the world’s largest railway infrastructure development program. This is not an easy program, and it must be dealt with on a staff basis, ”the Deputy Prime Minister emphasized.

The meeting participants discussed the development of freight logistics at the Central Transport Hub, taking into account the implementation of the Moscow Central Diameters project.

Another issue on the agenda was the Strategy for the Development of the Transport Complex of the Moscow Region for the period up to 2035. The draft document is synchronized with the Transport Strategy of the Russian Federation until 2035 and corresponds to it in the main directions and development tasks.

Summing up the implementation of the work plan for 2021, Marat Khusnullin thanked all the participants of the meeting for their good work: “Despite the difficult conditions of the pandemic, we have completed all the basic volumes. This is a big, seriously done work that needs to be continued. “
