The project aims to develop new modes of transportation, including the construction of a metro
As part of cooperation with the Yekaterinburg Administration, specialists from Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding are conducting negotiations to develop a plan for the comprehensive development of the city’s territory with the integration of multimodal transport infrastructure, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt, said at the 10th Moscow Urban Forum. Mosinzhproekt acts as the territorial development operator for a number of large urban development projects in Moscow and the Exclusive Partner of MUF 2021.
“The project is aimed both at increasing the efficiency of the existing transport network in Yekaterinburg by increasing the connectivity of all transport systems and at developing new modes of transportation to handle the ever-growing passenger traffic, including the construction of metro, tram and railway lines,” Yuri Kravtsov explained.
The CEO of Mosinzhproekt noted that the company’s rich experience in the development of transport infrastructure and the implementation of integrated territorial development projects may be in demand in many regions of Russia.
“In its collaboration with the regions, Mosinzhproekt uses a client-centered approach, offering individual solutions. Every Russian city has its own unique geography, architecture, town planning specifics and business activity. That is why the holding’s specialists take an extremely thorough approach to collaboration and preparation of proposals for changing the existing or creating a new transport infrastructure,” Yuri Kravtsov stressed.
According to Andrey Bochkarev, the capital’s Deputy Mayor for Urban Development Policy and Construction, Mosinzhproekt possesses high competencies and experience in implementing large urban and integrated territorial development projects. “The experience gained by Mosinzhproekt during the implementation of urban mega-projects in the capital can be quite effectively extended to other large cities both in Russian regions and around the world,” Andrey Bochkarev noted.
Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding has been the managing company for the construction of the Moscow metro since 2011 and is the territorial development operator for large urban development projects in the Russian capital such as Mnevnikovskaya floodplain, where it is planned to build various facilities with a total area of about 2.5 million square metres, the territory of the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center in the Filevskaya floodplain, where a special economic zone and a powerful research and production cluster will be created, and the Kommunarka Administrative and Business Center, where it is designing a fitness centre and an intermuseum multifunctional depository and exhibition complex, as well as engineering and transport infrastructure facilities: host electricity, heat, water supply and wastewater disposal facilities, an extensive network of utilities, wastewater mains, communication networks, etc., and the first stage of the street and road network.
