Moscow will receive 26 new pedestrian crossings and 44 road structures, flyovers, roads and bridges.

In 2018-2019, the city of Moscow will receive 44 new road transport structures, such as overpasses, roads and bridges, and 26 pedestrian under- and overpasses.  The total route length of the projects will be over 250 kilometres, said the Head of the Department of Construction Andrei Bochkaryov.

The plan for next year is to open the Solntsevo–Butovo–Vidnoye section from the Kievskoye to the Kaluzhskoye motorways, sections of the North-West Expressway from Festivalnaya Street to the Dmitrovskoye Motorway and from the Entuziastov Motorway to the Moscow Ring Road, a section of the Southern Expressway from Balaklavsky Prospekt to Proletarsky Prospekt and a section of the Kaluzhskoye Motorway from the village of Sosenki to the Moscow Ring Road (MKAD).

“From 2011 until 2016, over 500 kilometres of road were built or upgraded, including 162 transport related structures and 160 pedestrian underpasses,” Bochkaryov said.

Over the last six years, the city has rebuilt 126 kilometres of outbound motorways, 13 MKAD interchanges with motorways, expanded and designed 150 kilometres of dedicated lanes for public transit and built 350 bus lay-bys.
