MOSCOW, December 20 (Itar-Tass) — The reconstruction of the Moscow Ring Motorway will start in 2013, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
In an interview with the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper on Thursday, Sobyanin said, “Next year we will start reconstructing the Moscow Ring Motorway. We will work by sections. The design document has been prepared.”
According to earlier reports, the cloverleaf interchanges on the Moscow Ring Motorway will be replaced because the cloverleaf interchanges cannot cope with the interrupted flow. They can be preserved in the places where there is no intensive motor traffic. “According to our plans, the construction of new facilities along the Moscow Ring Motorway will be limited although the city authorities do not intend to demolish trade centres on the Moscow Ring Motorway,” Sobyanin said.
The mayor also noted that next year five highways, the Yaroslavl, Leningrad, Warsaw and Kashira highways, would be reconstructed. He added that the city set the task to reconstruct all highways for eight months.
