Two flyovers are being built here
“Installation of sound barriers and utilities, and reinforcement of spans of the two flyovers are underway on the section of the Moscow High-Speed Diameter (MSD) from Shosseynaya Street to Polbina Street”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.
Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is a general contractor and general designer of a number of sections of the Moscow High-Speed Diameter.
“Two flyovers are being constructed on the site, which will connect the high-speed diameter with the Lublinskaya Street relief road under construction”, said the Deputy Mayor.
He specified that the length of the flyover for the entrance from the Lublinskaya Street relief road to the high-speed diameter towards the Moscow Ring Road is 130 metres, and the length of the exit flyover from the MSD to the relief road is about 220 metres.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, said that all three piers of the entrance flyover have been erected and around 770 tonnes of steel structures of the spans and all four piers of the exit flyover have already been installed with over 1,250 tonnes of steel structures.
“In parallel, work is underway to redevelop the power and heating networks, construct a storm water drainage and install external lighting. Construction of the roadway and pavements is under preparation”, added Yuri Kravtsov.
The commissioning of the section will improve the transport accessibility of Pechatniki, Lublino and Tekstilshchiki districts, providing them with additional transport links and reducing the traffic load on Lublinskaya Street and Volgogradsky Avenue.
Earlier, Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, announced about the decision to stitch together the North-Eastern and South-Eastern Chords into a new city highway, the Moscow High-Speed Diameter. Currently, its readiness is estimated at 62%.
“For the millions of car owners, creation of the Moscow High-SpeedDiameter will constitute a new transport reality: faster and more comfortable travels from one area of the city to another. Bypassing the centre, it will take only 40 minutes to drive through the entire city without a single traffic light”, wrote Sergei Sobyanin in his blog.
