It’s about 1.2 km long

“Work continues on the fourth section of the Southern Rocade from Maryinsky Park Street to the Moscow Automobile Ring Road”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the general contractor and general designer of several sections of the Southern Rocade.

“A reinforced concrete fire wall along the Moscow Oil Refinery is being constructed along the section of the Southern Rocade from Maryinsky Park Street to the Moscow Automobile Ring Road. The wall is about 1.2 km long. The general construction readiness of this rockade section is 38%”, said the Deputy Mayor.

According to him, the project envisages construction and reconstruction of roads with a total length of 5 km. Last March, a pedestrian crossing was commissioned at the intersection of Verkhnie Polya Street and Maryinskiy Park Street.

“With four elevators installed for the convenience of people with limited mobility, the pedestrian crossing will make Verkhnie Polya Street safer for pedestrians, and will increase its capacity”, noted Andrey Bochkarev.

The head of the Construction Complex added that work on the fourth section is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023.

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, said that construction and relocation of utilities on the site are underway.

“Power lines of about 3 km long are being modified, and rainwater drainage is being constructed, heating networks are being relocated and gas pipelines are protected with steel casings”, specified Yuri Kravtsov.

The Southern Rocade will connect the city’s major motorways: the Moscow Automobile Ring Road, Kutuzovsky Prospekt, Michurinsky Prospekt, Prospekt Vernadskogo, Leninsky Prospekt, Profsoyuznaya Street, Varshavskoye Shosse, Proletarsky Prospekt, Kashirskoye Shosse, and Lyublinskaya Street.

The new motorway will be a relief road of the Moscow Automobile Ring Road and the Third Ring Road, reducing unnecessarily long road journeys as well as providing access to the federal highways M-9 Baltia and M-5 Ural.
