FOUR OVERPASSES WILL BE CONSTRUCTED WITHIN THE RECONSTRUCTION OF THE INTERCHANGE AT THE SHELEPIKHINSKAYA EMBANKMENT
Within the reconstruction of the interchange at the intersection of the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue, Shelepikhinskaya Embankment and Third Ring Road (TTK) there will be constructed four new overpasses. The facility was designed by Mosproekt-3 JSC, which is a member of the same named holding company.
“New multi-level stack interchange is constructed in Presnensky District at the intersection of the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue, Shelepikhinskaya Embankment and TTK. The interchange will provide free traffic flow to the TTK (city center direction) and an easy access to Moscow City Business Center through Vtoroy Krasnogvardeysky Passage. It is planned to construct and reconstruct 9,7 km of roads. Construction works will also include overpasses and retaining walls construction, utility system laying, landscaping and planting in nearby territory”, – said Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
As the Deputy Mayor has previously highlighted, the construction process is divided in several stages, construction works of the first stage, which included the reconstruction of two projected passages – № 4571 and № 6680, are almost completed.
“The second stage covers 2 km long section and includes the construction of four overpasses: exit road from the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue to Pervy Krasnogvardeysky Passage, left-turn access road from Shelepikhinskaya Embankment to the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue, exit road from the TTK to the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue and exit road from Shelepikhinskaya Embankment to the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue. It is also planned to construct two pedestrian underpasses and to erect an additional span of a railway bridge. Major construction works of the second stage will be completed this year”, – added the head of Moscow Complex for Urban Planning and Construction.
In order not to cause any train traffic disruption on Moscow Central Diametres (MCD), The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 specialists decided to use incremental launching to erect artificial structures of the interchange.
“New outbound road is located in close proximity to railway lines, so our specialists designed bridge structures of the interchange at the intersection of the North Relief Road for Kutuzovsky Avenue and the TTK to cover Smolensky Suburban Railway Line. We’ve managed to keep heavy train traffic on the MCD at the same level due to the launching method that implies span construction near the engineering structure and then bringing it into the final position during maintenance windows”, – highlighted Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO.
The third stage will include embankment reinforcement, roads, pavements and pedestrian crossings construction.
