THE NORTH-EASTERN CHORD SECTION FROM YAROSLAVSKOYE TO DMITOVSKOYE HIGHWAY IS 60% COMPLETE
The North-Eastern Chord section from Yaroslavskoye to Dmitovskoye highway is 60% complete. The project was designed by Mosproekt-3 JSC, which is a member of the same named holding company.
“Currently the artificial structures are actively being constructed on the one of the latest sections of the North-Eastern Chord – the section from Yaroslavskoye to Dmitrovskoye Highway. Construction works include piles drilling, overpasses bearings construction, span metal structures erection, including span launching. According to our estimates, the section is overall 60% complete”, – said Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
According to the Head of Moscow Complex for Urban Planning and Construction, the interchange on the intersection of the North-Eastern Chord and Prospekt Mira Street will become the key facility within the construction on this section. The interchange is currently 80% complete.
“Furthermore, 2,4 km long overpass is currently being constructed. The overpass is directly above the Moscow Central Circle line, Savyolovsky and Oktyabrskaya Suburban Railway lines. Bridge bearings are under construction, span erection is also under way. There were used both cantilevering and launching methods, launching method was used at the intersections with railway lines”, – added Andrey Bochkarev.
Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO, has previously highlighted that difficult conditions at one of the stages on this section required from The Group engineers to create nonstandard design solutions: “Main route overpass has intersections with two tracks of Moscow Suburban Railway lines and comes along Moscow Central Circle, a half kilometer long section of the facility even fully covers the 3rd track of the MCC. In order not to cause any train traffic disruption, our specialists considered railway temporary restructuring. During the construction period, there were used new temporary tracks built specially on this purpose. It made possible to construct an overpass in the safest and the most effective way”.
