In 2022, more than 90 kilometers of roads will be built in the capital.
This year it is planned to build 91 kilometers of roads in Moscow, including 19 flyovers, bridges, tunnels and 10 off-street pedestrian crossings. About this in my blog Sergey Sobyanin said.
“We have decided to combine the North-Eastern and South-Eastern chords into a new city highway –
Moscow High Speed Diameter (MSD). In terms of its scope and significance, the MSD will be comparable to the Moscow Ring Road. The 68-kilometer route will connect the largest outbound highways: the North-Western Chord, Dmitrovskoye, Altufevskoye, Yaroslavskoye, Schelkovskoye Highways, Entuziastov Highway, Ryazansky and Volgogradsky Prospekts, Southern Rokada, Kashirskoye and Varshavskoye Highways. In the vicinity of Novokhokhlovskaya station, it will be possible to leave the Moscow High-Speed Diameter for the Third Transport Ring,” wrote the Mayor of Moscow.
In the north, the federal highway M11 Moscow – St. Petersburg will continue the high-speed diameter, in the east – the future highway M12 Moscow – Kazan, in the south – the federal highway M2 “Crimea” and the new highway Solntsevo – Butovo – Warsaw highway.
In 2022, it is planned to complete the construction of the first stage of the MSD (North-Eastern Chord) from the Businovskaya interchange to the Kosinskaya flyover. During the year, the last major structure on this highway will be put into operation – the overpass of the main passage from Altufevskoye to Dmitrovskoye highway, 2.4 kilometers long. Now span structures are being mounted on the overpass and retaining walls are being erected.
The second stage of the Moscow High-Speed Diameter (South-East Chord) will be put into operation in 2023.
“For millions of motorists, its creation means a new transport reality – faster and more comfortable trips from one part of the city to another. Through the whole city, bypassing the center, it will be possible to drive without a single traffic light in 40 minutes. Depending on the distance and time of day, travel time will be reduced from 10 to 50 minutes. The road to Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo airports will be reduced by 20-25 minutes. There will be no transit of freight transport on the diameter,” said the Mayor of Moscow.
According to him, the Moscow High-Speed Diameter will be connected in the north with the North-Western Chord, and in the south with the Southern Rokada. Motorists will be able to drive to any district of Moscow without loading the Moscow Ring Road and the Third Transport Ring.
Last year, a connection was opened between the high-speed diameter and the North-Western Chord. This year it is planned to connect it with the South Rokada. Within the framework of the project, 13.3 kilometers of roads will be built in the area of Bekhterev Street, including four overpasses and four pedestrian underpasses.
Interchanges on the Moscow Ring Road
“Starting from 2011, we have reconstructed 18 interchanges on the Moscow Ring Road. The program is 80 percent completed. Four more connections are in the works. Among them are Ostashkovskaya and Altufevskaya, the reconstruction of which we plan to complete this year. At the Ostashkovskaya interchange, the construction of two overpasses and two overpasses is planned. In total, 8.7 kilometers of roads and an elevated pedestrian crossing will be built in the area of Ostashkovskaya Street, house 30,” Sergei Sobyanin noted.
Now builders are erecting supports for overpasses and ramps, laying rain sewers and low-voltage systems, and assembling spans of metal structures.
Another obsolete clover-type structure will be replaced at the intersection of the Moscow Ring Road and Altufevskoe Highway. The new overpass will provide comfortable traffic along the Altufevskoe Highway. The overpass-exit will improve the exit from Altufevskoe Highway to the outer side of the Moscow Ring Road towards Dmitrovskoye Highway. In addition, there will be a new exit from the outer side of the ring road to Altufevskoye Highway towards the center. In total, 5.4 kilometers of roads will be built as part of the project.
Work continues on the supports and span structure of the overpass across the Moscow Ring Road, temporary ramps, and the laying of utilities is underway.
The Moscow Mayor stressed that the reconstruction of the Ostashkovskaya and Altufyevskaya interchanges will improve transport services for about a million people – residents of the Bibirevo, Lianozovo, Northern and Southern Medvedkovo, Losinoostrovsky, Babushkinsky, Otradnoye, Severny districts, as well as the urban district of Mytishchi, Moscow Region.
Overpass through MCD-1
Instead of the old overpass 39 meters long, a new 205-meter overpass is being built on Barclay Street. It will ensure comfortable and safe traffic not only through the railway tracks, but also over the building under construction. northern understudy of Kutuzovsky prospect.
“Acceleration and deceleration lanes will be added on Barclay Street and Promyshlenny Proyezd. A direct link will be organized between Vasilisa Kozhina Street and Promyshlenny Proyezd. It is planned to open pedestrian crossings at the intersection of Bagrationovsky Proyezd and Oleko Dundich Street and at house 5 on Barclay Street,” Sergey Sobyanin noted.
Reconstruction of the Staro-Rublevsky overpass and Ivan Franko street
The renovated Staro-Rublevsky overpass will pass over the new highway and MCD-1 tracks, improving the connection between Kutuzovsky Prospekt and Rublevsky Highway. From the overpass, it will be possible to drive down the overpass to the northern understudy of Kutuzovsky Prospekt towards the region, and through the tunnel under construction – to Gerasim Kurin Street.
The mayor of Moscow said that the traffic on the overpass will be one-way and two-lane, including an overpass – a ramp to the northern understudy towards the region. As part of the project, Ivana Franko Street will be expanded, increasing the number of traffic lanes to two in each direction.
“The implementation of these road projects will create additional routes for drivers to move around the city, reduce congestion and improve the transport situation in Moscow,” Sergei Sobyanin concluded.
