OVER 30 TRANSPORT HUBS WILL BE CONSTRUCTED IN MOSCOW WITHIN THREE YEARS
The construction of 33 hubs is scheduled by Moscow Investment Programme for 2021-2023. That has been reported by Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction. The experts of GC Mosproekt-3 are closely engaged in the implementation of the programme of transport hubs.
“Transport hubs are definitely an important part of the advancement of the transport system. The aim is to make the passenger transfer between different means of transport more comfortable and faster,” – Andrey Bochkarev, the Head of Moscow Complex of Urban Planning Policy and Construction.
The engineers of the Moscow Scientific-Research and Design Institute of Typology and Experimental Design (MNIITEP), which forms a part of Mosproekt-3, managed to develop twenty-two projects of transport hubs in the Moscow Central Circle. “Ryazanskaya” Transport Hub became the flagship project, having connected the MCC station, the suburban railway platform, the Nekrasovskaya Line and the Big Metro Circle joint station.
“Today it is the only transport hub in the country that connects the maximum number of traffic flows. When designing and engineering, we faced the challenge to integrate several transport systems, each with its own technological features and operation regulations. The regulation framework was not sufficient enough to address some of the project issues, therefore, we had to develop the solutions that had not been applied before,” – Anna Merkulova, CEO of the Group of сompanies Mosproekt-3.
The construction of the transport hub was carried out in stages: first, MCC station was launched, then Karacharovo Platform was transferred, recently Nekrasovskaya Line trains have started their action, the construction of the Big Circle is still in progress. All along the train traffic did not cease.
“A number of complex assemblies of escalator-elevator groups were developed to adjoin to the already existing structures. The train traffic on the railway lines managed not to be interrupted as a result of so-called “technological windows” at night time,” – Anna Lukonskaya, Design and Engineering Work Department of MNIITEP. She spoke about the peculiarities of design and engineering of transport hub in the expert interview with “Russia 24” TV channel.
