The route connecting the Moscow High-Speed Diameter (MSD) with the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoe highway is 50 percent ready. This was stated by Sergei Sobyanin during an inspection of the progress of road construction.

“We are forming a new road frame in the south of the capital. Work is underway to connect the southern direction of the Moscow High-Speed Diameter. At the end of this year we should come to the Simferopol and Varshavskoye highways, connect them and, thus, relieve the congestion on these two routes. At the end of 2025, we are already planning to connect the Moscow High-Speed Diameter with the Kaluga, Kyiv and Minsk highways,” said the Mayor of Moscow.

Thanks to the new route, a qualitatively new road network will be formed in the south of Moscow. The load on the southern sector of the Moscow Ring Road (MKAD) and a number of major streets in the city will be significantly reduced: Varshavskoe Highway, Podolskiye Kursantov Street, Dorozhnaya Street, Pavel Fitin Street and Polyany Street and others.

“The new route will reduce travel time by an average of 23 minutes and will significantly reduce the load on the southern sector of the Moscow Ring Road and a number of major city streets,” wrote the Moscow Mayor.

According to estimates by the Center for Traffic Management of the Moscow Government, the creation of a link between the Moscow High-Speed Diameter and the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoe Highway will allow cars to avoid overrunning up to 2.5 kilometers and reduce travel time by an average of 23 minutes. In addition, it will reduce the load level on the inner side of the Moscow Ring Road from Lipetskaya Street to Varshavskoye Shosse by five percent, on Varshavskoye Highway from Podolskiye Kursantov Street to the Moscow Ring Road – by 11 percent, in Stupinsky Proezd from MSD to Podolskiye Kursantov Street – by 15 percent, by Rossoshanskaya Street from Dorozhnaya Street to Varshavskoye Shosse – by 19 percent, on Lipetskaya Street from Projected Proezd No. 5108 to the Moscow Ring Road – by seven percent.

As a result, transport accessibility to the districts of Biryulyovo Zapadnoye, Yuzhnoye Butovo, Severnoye Butovo, Chertanovo Yuzhnoye, as well as the Moscow region settlement of Bulatnikovskoye, where more than 580 thousand people live, will improve.

Construction works

The route – a link between the Moscow High-Speed Diameter and the Solntsevo – Butovo – Varshavskoye Highway highway – began to be laid in July

2019. The traffic-light-free route, 3.5 kilometers long in a straight line with three to four lanes in each direction, begins in the area of the 32nd kilometer of the Moscow Ring Road and reaches a connection with the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoye Highway highway under construction near Novobutovskaya Street. In the direction of travel, there are exits to the federal highway M-2 “Crimea” (Simferopol highway) and Varshavskoye highway.

 

According to Farit Khaidarov, General Director of Moscow Engineering and Construction Company JSC, work is being carried out around the clock and in accordance with the schedule.

“More than 600 people and 107 pieces of equipment are involved in the facility,” said Farit Khaidarov.

In total, 12.2 kilometers of roads will be built as part of the project, including seven artificial structures with a total length of more than three kilometers.

Among them:

— overpass — exit from the inside of the Moscow Ring Road onto the MSD towards Simferopol Highway (1.1 kilometers, two lanes in one direction);

— two overpasses — exit from MSD to Simferopolskoye shosse

osse towards the region (one kilometer, two lanes in one direction), as well as onto the Varshavskoe highway and the Solntsevo – Butovo – Varshavskoe highway (626 meters, three lanes in each direction);

— two tunnels under the Moscow Ring Road and Simferopol Highway (231 meters, three lanes in each direction);

— bridge over the Bitsa River (109 meters, four lanes in each direction);

— an overpass in the area of the “Southern Bitsa” residential complex (35 meters, three lanes in each direction).

In addition, the following conferences will be organized:

— from the Simferopol highway on the MSD towards the Moscow Ring Road (one kilometer, one – two lanes in one direction);

— from Varshavskoye Shosse on the MSD towards the Moscow Ring Road (830 meters, one – two lanes in one direction);

— from the MSD to the outer side of the Moscow Ring Road (915 meters, two lanes in one direction);

— from the MSD to the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoe highway towards Kaluzhskoe highway (one kilometer, two lanes in one direction);

— from the MSD to Varshavskoe Highway towards the region and to Novobutovskaya Street (235 meters, one – two lanes in one direction);

— from Warsaw Highway and Novobutovskaya Street on the MSD towards the Moscow Ring Road (115 meters, one or two lanes in one direction).

For the convenience of pedestrians, four crossings will be built, including two above-ground ones in the area of the Yuzhnaya Bitsa residential complex and CHPP-26 (Vostryakovsky proezd, building 10, building 8), as well as two underground ones in the area of the Bitsa village near Moscow and the Butovo Park residential complex ( house 1 a).

To reduce noise levels, protective screens with a total length of 2.4 kilometers will be installed along the main road. In addition, specialists will carry out work on the reconstruction of 80 kilometers of utility lines and the construction of three treatment facilities. As part of the improvement of the surrounding area, 32.4 hectares of lawns will be laid out and over 52.3 thousand trees and shrubs will be planted.

To minimize the inconvenience associated with the construction of large artificial structures, work is carried out in the area of the Moscow Ring Road and the tracks of the second Moscow Central Diameter (MCD-2) without stopping the movement of road and rail transport. At the moment, the construction readiness of the facility is 50 percent.

Full traffic along the main course of the MSD opened on September 9, 2023. Motorists can drive from north to east of the capital from the Businovskaya interchange to the M-12 highway and from east to south to Podolskiye Kursantov Street.

About 400 thousand cars pass along the MSD every day. The highway is included in the list of the most popular highways in the city. Thanks to MSD, travel time in some directions has been reduced by 25–50 percent. Sections of the Garden Ring, the Third Transport Ring and the Moscow Ring Road have been reduced to 15 percent.

New roads of Moscow

In 2011–2023, the Moscow Government built 1,360 kilometers of roads, which is about 25 percent of the existing road network. 429 new tunnels, overpasses and bridges appeared in the capital – the number of artificial transport structures increased by 65 percent. In addition, 311 off-street pedestrian crossings were built.

The key tasks for the coming years are the development of radial directions, the connection of disparate territories and the creation of new cross-links in actively developed areas of integrated and advanced development, as well as the integration of the road network, stopping points and transport hubs (metro, Moscow Central Circle and MCD).

In addition, the key projects remain the extension of the southern direction of the Moscow Ring Road beyond the Moscow Ring Road, the completion of the construction of the Southern Road and the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoe Highway.

Plans for 2024 include the construction of 94 kilometers of roads, 30 artificial structures and 16 pedestrian crossings.

Among the main objects:

— transport interchanges at the intersection of the Moscow Ring Road with Verkhnie Polya Street (main work completed in March 2024) and Altufevskoye Highway;

– the route connecting the MSD with the Solntsevo – Butovo – Varshavskoe highway;

– section of the Solntsevo – Butovo – Varshavskoe highway from the Kommunarka metro station (Stolbovo transport hub) to Polyany Street (first stage);

— an overpass in the area of the 24th and 25th kilometers of the Leningradskoye Highway (opened to traffic in March 2024);

— backup for Kaluga Highway (first stage).

In 2025–2026, it is planned to build 171 kilometers of roads, 41 artificial structures and 45 pedestrian crossings.
