The length of the underground and surface metro lines in Moscow will reach 1,000 km by 2024 – Andrey Bochkarev

A large-scale metro and railway development programme will turn the capital into a world leader in terms of rail network density

The length of the capital’s rail transport lines, including the metro and the Moscow Central Diameters (MCD), will reach 1,000 kilometres by 2024, Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction, said at the 10th Moscow Urban Forum. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding acts as the managing company for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow metro, and has been participating in the MUF as the Exclusive Partner since 2014.

“We asked an international company BCG to conduct a survey, and the survey data indicate that a large-scale programme to develop metro and railway transport in Moscow will turn the capital into a world leader in terms of rail network density. By 2024, the total length of our rail transport lines will be 1,000 kilometres,” Andrey Bochkarev said.

The head of the Construction Complex specified that the metro and the MCC would account for 520 km and the MCD and railway lines for 480 km of total lines by 2024.

Earlier, the head of the construction complex said that it was planned to decide on new plans for the development of the capital’s metro by the end of 2022.
