“Completion of the Moscow High-Speed Diameter (MSD) section from Shosseynaya Street to Polbina Street is estimated to be 70%”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding acts as a general contractor and general designer of several sections of the Moscow High-Speed Diameter (MSD).

“Two flyovers are being constructed on the section, which will connect the high-speed diameter with the Lyublinskaya Street relief road under construction. Now we are reinforcing spans of both flyovers”, said the Deputy Mayor.

He recalled that the commissioning of the section will improve transport accessibility of Pechatniki, Lyublino and Tekstilshchiki districts, providing them with additional transport link. The load on Lyublinskaya Street and Volgogradsky Prospekt will also decrease.

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, added that the length of the flyover for the entrance from the Lyublinskaya Street relief road to the high-speed diameter towards the Moscow Automobile Ring Road is 130 metres, and the length of the exit flyover from the MSD to the relief road is about 220 metres.

“In parallel, the foundations to install noise screens, and utilities are being constructed: external lighting and control and traffic management systems”, said Yuri Kravtsov.

At the beginning of the year, Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, announced about the decision to stitch together the North-East and South-East Chords into a new city highway named the Moscow High-Speed Diameter. The diameter will relieve the major highways of the capital and improve the environmental situation.

“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 Sergei Sobyanin.
