By the end of this year, it is planned to build about 20 km of roads for various purposes within the boundaries of the annexed districts, Vladimir Zhidkin, head of the department for the development of new territories of the capital, told Interfax.
“One of the main principles of the development of new Moscow is the formation of a full-fledged transport framework. The construction of new roads is the most important condition for the full-fledged economic growth of territories and an increase in its comfort. In the remaining months of this year, another 16.6 km of roads are to be commissioned,” Zhidkin said. He explained that in addition to high-speed trunk roads, so-called cross-links are being built in new Moscow. “This allows to relieve the burden of large departure routes and create additional connections between individual settlements,” Zhidkin said.
Earlier, he noted that since the accession, about 250 km of highways have been built in the new districts.
