Special attention is paid to the construction of railway crossings.

In the next three years, Moscow plans to put into operation each year at least 100 kilometres of roads and about 20–30 tunnels, bridges and other transport facilities, Deputy Mayor for Urban Development Policy and Construction Marat Khusnullin said.

“The construction of road and transport infrastructure and new motorways remains one of our priorities,” he said.

According to Mr Khusnullin, about 600 billion roubles have been allocated from the budget in recent years to develop road and transport infrastructure. About 600 kilometres of roads have been built, which is 13 percent of the length of all Moscow roads, as well as 156 engineering structures.

Mr Khusnullin also noted that much attention is paid to the construction of railway crossings.

“We plan to actively develop rail transport in the coming years and build additional tracks on radial routes. At the same time, it is necessary to build additional railway crossings to improve the transport situation,” the Deputy Mayor said.

Last year, construction works were completed at a number of key facilities, including a two-level junction at the intersection of Ryabinovaya Street and Generala Dorokhova Street, six transport facilities and almost 14 kilometres of roads on the Kaluzhskoye Motorway.
