MOSCOW, January 24, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Vice-Mayor Marat Khusnullin said on January 23 that the construction of metro lines and railways would turn Moscow into a world leader. He said the city was building as many metro stations and tunnels as in Soviet days.
“In 2014, we should create conditions for building 22 and 26 kilometers of metro tunnels in 2015-2016, respectively. This is a serious challenge to the entire Moscow construction industry because with these facilities built we are going to enter leading positions in the construction of transport infrastructure,” Khusnullin said.
He clarified that 13 kilometers of metro lines would come in operation in Moscow this year.
As for the road construction, Khusnullin said that at least 80 kilometers of new roads would be built this year.
“Last year, we finished the construction of five outbound radial routes with 127 kilometers worth of bus only lanes for public transport. This makes up 64% of all bus only lanes in the city,” the Moscow vice-mayor said.
At present, Moscow has four outbound routes, including Shosse Entuziastov, Schyolkovkoye Shosse, Mozhaiskoye Shosse and Ryazansky Prospect. There construction will be over this year. Besides, six city road junctions are undergoing repairs.
The construction of the Central Automobile Ring Road will get under way in the territory of New Moscow this year.
