It is planned to fully integrate it into the new South-Eastern Chord
“The reconstruction of Shosseynaya Street, which is part of the fourth section of the South-Eastern Chord (SEC), is one third complete”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the general contractor and general designer of a number of sections of the South-Eastern Chord and Southern Rockade.
“The reconstruction of Shosseynaya Street is now underway as part of the construction of the new section of South-Eastern Chord from Shosseynaya Street to Polbina Street. It is planned to fully integrate it into the new chord. The construction and installation work is about 33% complete,” said the Deputy Mayor.
He said that the outdoor utility systems are nearly 50% complete. The general improvement and landscaping of the surrounding area is 21% complete.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, explained that work on the fourth section of the SEC is also underway on the future main road route and the reconstruction of Polbina Street has been completed.
“A total of five exits and two overpasses will appear here. Highway sound barriers and retaining structures are also expected to be installed. When all works on the section, scheduled for 2022, are complete, the section will become an integral part of the chord and will help to relieve the traditionally crowded sections of the street and road network of the South-Eastern sector of the capital,” specified Yuri Kravtsov.
The launch of traffic along the entire length of the SEC will significantly improve transport services to the south and southeast of the capital, as well as to the New Moscow districts.
The chord system of highways, including the North-West, North-East, South-East Chords, and the Southern Rockade, is a key project for developing the capital’s road transport network, which is designed to connect the remote districts and relieve the city centre, the Third Ring Road and the Moscow Automobile Ring Road.
