THE SOUTH-EASTERN CHORD SECTION FROM THE PAVELETSKY SUBURBAN RAILWAY LINE TO MKAD WILL BE COMPLETED BY 2023
The South-Eastern Chord section from the Paveletsky Suburban Railway Line to Moscow Automobile Ring Road (MKAD) is 36% complete. The project was designed by Mosproekt-3 JSC, which is a member of the same named holding company.
“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 is South-Western Chord, a large-scale construction project, which will improve transport service for 22 districts of Moscow with a population of more than 2 million people. Construction is carried out on all sections”, – said Sergey Sobyanin, the Mayor of Moscow, during the site visit.
Within the South-Eastern Chord section it is planned to construct more than 11 km of roads, two overpasses and a tunnel under 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.
