The population of Moscow’s Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas will soar five times over by 2035, reaching 1.6 million.

In the past five years, the city has built a metro line to the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas, as well as over 11 million square metres of buildings and has also created 100,000 jobs there. By 2035, the newly incorporated territories will be in no way inferior to Old Moscow’s administrative areas.

Sergei Sobyanin inspected the new territories on the fifth anniversary of their being incorporated into Moscow. During his trip, he opened a new school, an overpass at the 33rd kilometre of the Moscow Railway’s Kiev Line, inspected an upgraded square near the town of Moskovsky’s Palace of Culture and congratulated employees of a pharmaceutical plant in the Krasnopakhorskoye rural town on the company’s 10th anniversary.

The city will continue to develop its newly incorporated territories. “We will create jobs, build new good-quality housing and improve the neighbourhoods. We will build eight large thematic parks here,” Mr Sobyanin noted during his visit.

The Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas were established on 1 July 2012. They include the Troitsk and Shcherbinka city areas and 19 rural districts and towns located on an area of 148,000 hectares. Moscow’s land area increased 2.5 times as a result.

A large-scale programme has been drafted to develop the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. In the past five years, the population of these new areas has increased by 40 percent to 347,800. In all, 100,000 jobs have been created. Also, there is no shortage of accommodation at kindergartens, and seven new outpatient clinics have been built. Six area schools rank among the city’s top 300 schools.

In all, 153,000 veterans, people with disabilities and families with many children receive social benefits in line with city standards.

Over 11 million square metres of buildings have been built in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas, 14 parks and public gardens have been improved, and 30 new bus routes have been opened. A new metro line extension with the Rumyantsevo and Salaryevo metro stations has been built.

Under the General Plan for the Reconstruction of Moscow, the population of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas is to increase five times by 2035: from 350,000 in 2017 to 1.6 million. The number of jobs is to increase 5.5-fold: from 200,000 to 1.1 million. All general plan parametres are based on these indicators.

Looking into the future: development of the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas

The general plan hinges on four main principles for developing the newly incorporated territories: comprehensiveness, polycentrism, earlier-than-planned infrastructure development and environmental friendliness.

Residents of new districts in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas will be able to live, work, study and relax within the areas. The social facilities will be located within walking distance of their homes. The so-called growth points or centres for production, business and social activity, will make it possible to reduce shuttle migration volumes. For these purposes, housing will be built either simultaneously with the transport systems, utility mains and social facilities or just after installation. Numerous local green areas will make it possible to build nice parks and leisure/recreational areas.

Social infrastructure, nature areas, restoring cultural landmarks

The Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas will be developed under new principles for creating a people-friendly cityscape, including:

  • new city blocks, dividing inner courtyards and public spaces (streets) and creating a systematised urban infrastructure;
  • people-friendly cityscape and introducing diverse architectural solutions;
  • higher density, new social infrastructure, retail outlets, recreation areas and places of work within walking distance from local residential areas;
  • new multifunctional housing developments with retail and other street-level services;
  • environmentally friendly construction projects;
  • preserving and improving nature areas.

By 2035, there will be about 100 cultural, leisure and recreational facilities, about 320 new kindergartens, 170 schools and 125 medical facilities, including outpatient clinics, a hospital in Kommunarka and a maternity clinic.

The general plan notes the boundaries of specially protected nature areas, lists water protection zones, shoreline, protective and waterfront sections for preserving the areas’ landscapes and biodiversity. Environmental reclamation projects call for protecting the valleys of small rivers, reclaiming solid waste sites and restoring damaged forests.

There are also plans to protect and restore over 180 cultural heritage landmarks, including the Ostafyevo, Valuyevo, Voronovo and other estates. Historical-cultural and tourist/recreational centres will be established at these estates.

Developing the transport infrastructure, roads and streets

By 2035, there will be 72 kilometres of metro lines, 33 metro stations and four train maintenance facilities.

The metro’s Sokolnicheskaya Line will be extended towards the town of Moskovsky and Sosenskoye (Kommunarka) township, and the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line will reach the village of Rasskazovka in the rural district of Vnukovskoye and airport Vnukovo. Another line will link the rural district of Ryazanovskoye with districts in the Southern Administrative Area, including Zapadnoye (Western) and Vostochnoye (Eastern) Biryulyovo and Nagatinsky Zaton. The new Ulitsa Novatorov-Stolbovo Line will also be built.

Commuter trains will not be overlooked. Additional mainline capacity will be built along the Moscow Railway’s Kiev Line, and existing tracks will be upgraded on the Kursk Line.

There are plans to modernise a section of the Moscow Railway’s Greater Ring and to build additional stations or platforms, including those between the Kokoshkino and Kryokshino stations on the Kiev Line and between the Shcherbinka and Silikatnaya stations on the Moscow Railway’s Kursk Line. The grounds around the stations will be improved. Pedestrian underpasses and overpasses, as well as park-and-ride facilities and bus stops, will also be built.

Surface transit will continue to be developed. The city is establishing new bus routes and new bus maintenance facilities. Tram routes, including fast tram routes, are being built, and 25 transit links/hubs are also under construction.

The route length of local roads and streets will increase from 1,461 kilometres to 2,088 kilometres. Lateral roads will be built. New radial routes will be built and old ones reconstructed, including the Kaluzhskoye, Kievskoye and Varshavskoye motorways. The city will build numerous transport interchanges and overpasses across railway racks. Another major transport project calls for building a 44.6-kilometre section of the Central Ring Road around Moscow.

Construction

A metro line has opened in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas, ranking among the construction industry’s main achievements. Rumyantsevo and Salaryevo, the two new stations on the Sokolnicheskaya Line, were opened in 2016.

Road construction is underway. In May 2017, the city completed the first stage of upgrading Kaluzhskoye Motorway, the main route in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. In all, 26 kilometres of new roads were built, plus three bridges across the Sosenka River, four overpasses, three underpasses and six pedestrian crossings. The city has also completed and upgraded four more roads with a total route length of 14.5 kilometres, namely, sections of the Rasskazovka-Moskovsky, Mamyri-Salaryevo, Borovskoye Motorway-Gorkogo Street and Tsentralnaya Street in Kommunarka. Two overpasses have been built across the Moscow Railway’s Kiev Line near Kokoshkino and also across the Kursk Line near Shcherbinka. There are plans to open five transport infrastructure facilities with a total length of 18.2 kilometres, including sections of the Borovskoye Motorway-Botakovo village road and a road linking Zheleznodorozhnaya railway station with the Moscow Region’s border. Akademika Semyonova Street has been extended, and an overpass built in the rural district of Pervomaiskoye. And an overpass has been built over the tracks at the 36th kilometre of the Moscow Railway’s Kiev Line near Kryokshino station.

Roads with a total route length of 95 kilometres are currently being built in the administrative areas. And an overpass is being built across the tracks at the 25th kilometre of the Moscow Railway’s Kiev Line near Vnukovo station.

The city has built 47 social facilities since 2012, including 30 kindergartens and preschools for 6,100 children, ten schools for 9,674 students and seven outpatient clinics for 1,710 visits per shift.

The city has invested over 700 billion roubles in both areas’ housing construction and attendant infrastructure. In the past five years, over 11 million square metres of buildings, including 8.6 million square metres of housing, have been built with city funding.

The most important projects include:

  • the Comcity office park near the Moscow Ring Road (MKAD) and Rumyantsevo metro station employing 12,000 people;
