MOSCOW, October 14 (Itar-Tass) — The Moscow authorities have no plans to overbuild the territory of “new” Moscow and create a mega-city there.
Sobyanin told the Postscriptum program on the TV-Center channel on Saturday that the idea was to preserve the territory as it is with parks and large green areas when a decision to expand Moscow was made.
“Densely built-up areas are expected to appear on a territory between the Butovo and Solntsevo districts,” Sobyanin went on to say.
“Moscow is surrounded by huge neighborhoods built with 25-storied apartment buildings which don’t have social amenities or transport infrastructure. But the most terrible thing is that there are no jobs,” the Moscow mayor emphasized.
“People residing there are forced to head for Moscow in search of jobs, and this creates a transport collapse which we see,” Sobyanin went on to say.
“That is why we want to implement a different project at least in this part of Moscow. First, there will be no densely built-up areas; second, the territory behind the town of Troitsk will be turned into a recreation area. We will create housing and jobs simultaneously so that to make this project interesting to Muscovites who will get new housing; for businessmen who will create new jobs and for all Muscovites who will have a nice place for recreation,” Sobyanin stressed.
