Recall, previously, Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, announced about the decision to stitch together the North-Eastern and South-Eastern Chords into a new city highway named as Moscow High-Speed Diameter.

“It’s an alternate transport reality. It is to relieve the Moscow Automobile Ring Road, the Third Ring Road, and a huge number of roads that run in the south, east, and north of Moscow and are most heavily congested. It is also an alternate environment: reduction of 20 percent in harmful emissions because there is no overmileage, less traffic jams and so on”, said Sobyanin.
