This year, two sections of the North-West Expressway will open, one from Mosfilmovskaya Street to Aminyevskoye Motorway and the road interchange at the intersection of Generala Dorokhova Street and Aminyevskoye Motorway.

The total length of the North-West Expressway with all elevated and access roads as well as places where U-turns can be made will be over 100 kilometres, Deputy Moscow Mayor for Urban Development and Construction Marat Khusnullin said.

"The work to construct all sections of the North-West Expressway main road is due to be completed next year. This will be a new motorway with a total length of over 100 kilometres, including its access and elevated roads," he said.

Mr Khusnullin added that this year's plans also include launching two sections of the road - a section from Mosfilmovskaya Street to Aminyevskoye Motorway and the road interchange at the intersection of Generala Dorokhova Street and Aminyevskoye motorway.

The North-West Expressway will connect the territories of four city administrative areas - Northeastern, Northern, Northwestern and Western administrative areas. The expressway will stretch from Yaroslavskoye to Skolkovskoye motorways and will ease the traffic on the Third Ring Road, MKAD, and also in the city centre.

Along with the expressway the construction works include building two bridges, seven tunnels, 16 elevated roads, and 30 pedestrian overpasses.

The information on the construction of expressways in the city is available on the site of the Urban Development and Construction Complex.
