MOSCOW, August 26 (Itar-Tass) — During the current year, Moscow will build a record of 8.5 kilometres of underground lines, Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said in an interview with the Rossiya-1 television channel on Sunday.
He stressed that the Moscow underground had not build that many lines a year in its history.
“Next year, we shall make 14 kilometres, in the following year – 18 kilometres, and then – 30,” Sobyanin said. “Within five years we shall build 75 kilometres, and the distance of lines will grow by 1.5 times.”
He continued saying that the transport issue remains very important in the city, and “it will not be possible to solve it within a year or two.”
He said that the city had started works at 6 roads going from the city.
“We have set strict conditions for the constructors – not to interfere with the roads and to have the work done within 12 – 18 months,” he said adding “within five years, we shall reconstruct all major roads, which are 17.” The mayor said Rosavtodor (Federal Highway Agency) started reconstruction of the roads outside the circle road of Moscow, in the territory of the Moscow region already.
During the current year, Moscow will open three new stations of the underground.
