MOSCOW, April 16 (Itar-Tass) — The city authorities intend to increase the traffic capacity of Moscow’s Kashirskoye Highway by 30 percent. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin on Monday inspected the course of its reconstruction.
At the present moment work is done to organize 44 side lanes for public transport, and this work is to be completed by November 1. Bus lanes will also be organized by that date. All in all, six pedestrian subways will be built and one will be reconstructed.
A total of 1,000 construction specialists work there round-the-clock. The head of the transport department, Maxim Liksutov, told the mayor that the highway would be equipped with smart traffic lights.
Reconstruction work is to be completed by the summer of 2013.
