SOUTH-EASTERN CHORD SECTION FROM PAVELETSKY SUBURBAN RAILWAY LINE TO MKAD WILL HAVE BEEN COMPLETED BY 2023
The South-Eastern Chord section from Paveletsky Suburban Railway Line to Moscow Automobile Circle Road (MKAD) is 36% complete. The project was developed by “Mosproekt-3”, the company which forms a part of the so named Group of companies.
“The lack of transport infrastructure is one of the main challenges, which we are solving by creating a new transport network consisting of four chords. North-Western Chord is completed. South Rocade and North-Eastern Chord are two-thirds complete. The last one is South-Western Chord, a large-scale construction project, which will improve the transport service for 22 districts of Moscow with the population of over 2 million people. The construction is carried out in all sections”, – said Sergei Sobyanin, the Mayor of Moscow, during his visit to the site.
Within the South-Eastern Chord section it is planned to construct over 11 km of roads, two overpasses and a tunnel under the railway lines, it is also planned to reconstruct several passages and exit-roads. “The section is planned to be completed by 2023”, – highlighted Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
