Work will also continue to lay new tracks.

Six stopping points will be built and reconstructed in 2022 on the promising fourth Moscow Central Diameter (MCD-4) “Kievsko-Gorkovsky”. This was stated by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Development Policy and Construction Andrey Bochkarev.

“It is planned to complete the construction of a new stopping point Minskaya, as well as the reconstruction of five existing stations – Tolstopaltsevo, Meshcherskaya, Peredelkino, Lesnoy Gorodok and Ochakovo,” he said.

Work will also continue to lay new tracks.

“Today, active work is underway on the construction of the third and fourth main tracks of the Kiev direction of the Moscow railway, the connecting branch between the Kiev and Smolensk directions, as well as the reconstruction of the Kurskaya – Kalanchevskaya and Kurskaya – Nizhegorodskaya sections (the former Karacharovo platform). This work will also continue next year, ”added Andrei Bochkarev.

The total length of the future MCD-4 “Kievsko-Gorkovsky” will be 86 kilometers. 39 stopping points will appear on it. The end stations of the diameter will be Aprelevka Kievsky direction and Zheleznodorozhnaya Gorkovsky direction. The fourth diameter will connect seven central railway stations of the capital: Kurskiy, Yaroslavskiy, Kazanskiy, Leningradskiy, Savelovskiy, Rizhskiy and Belorusskiy. From 18 stations of MCD-4 it will be possible to transfer to the metro, the Moscow Central Ring and other diameters – a total of 38 transfer options.

The opening of MCD-4 will improve transport services in 23 Moscow districts, where more than 2.5 million people live. The daily passenger traffic of the line should grow to 455 thousand people, and about 30 million passengers will use MCD-4 for trips within the capital alone a year.

In 2022, it is planned to complete the construction of three new and the reconstruction of seven existing railway stations.
