Moscow central ring: the city became closer
• The Moscow central ring: the city became closer
Yesterday, the Day of the city to the Moscow center ring opened the door for passengers 26 new stations. The new transport artery runs under the motto "The city has become closer," and indeed it is.
Moscow central ring - it is an urban train that connects the subway and suburban train system, so that passengers will be able to quickly change from one vehicle to another. Within a month of travel it will be free - that all have appreciated the advantages of the new route.
Moscow Circular Railway (MOZHD) was built around Moscow more than a hundred years ago. Its length is 54 km. Throughout the 14 stations were built, and they are - unique samples of Moscow Art Nouveau of the early twentieth century.
Do 1917 MOZHD transported to Moscow, workers and employees of adjacent businesses, although passengers are always not enough. Later, when the areas for which the track passed MOZHD received reliable tram and bus links, passenger traffic on the ring was closed. Since 1934, the ring went only commodity and spetssostavy with diesel locomotives.
By 2012, visually nothing has changed, only occasionally in the ring passed smoky Tovarnik. Then, abruptly blocked the traffic, all dug up, pulled down part of the bridge and around the complete reconstruction of the ring was produced for four years - is the electrification, reconstruction of two major pathways in high-tech jointless, providing smooth and low noise course trains, construction of 31 km of additional main railway line, on the which will be transferred freight transportation, and construction of a new station 31.
By the way, some of the old station survived. All the new platforms were built from scratch (except Gagarin Square), but the current low platform near the station of historical buildings have been preserved in its original form.
Platform equipped with turnstiles, where unlike platforms radial directions commuter trains will operate a single ticket of the Moscow metro, the Troika and the Moscow city street traffic. However, during the first month since the beginning of operation they will not control the travel expenses, as all travel on the Moscow central ring will be free during this period.
A total of renewed central Moscow will ring twice more stations than ever before - 31 instead of 14 pre-revolutionary.
And here is the train. Many people may be familiar with Swallow - high-speed trains, created on the basis of the Siemens Desiro platform for the Russian railways. All on the Moscow central ring a day will run up to 134 pairs of trains. The maximum speed of the rolling stock of about 120 km / h. Capacity of 1,200 passengers.
In 2014 the production of Swallow trains underway in Russia at the "Ural Locomotives" in Upper Pyshma (Ekaterinburg).
The trains comfort seats, there are mounts for bicycles, toilets (!!!), climate control, room for passengers with limited mobility. In addition, there are sockets for charging gadgets and access point Wi-Fi. In short, a modern European train.
Each of the new stations of the Moscow central ring is a not a modest stop, as it was a hundred years ago, and comfortable and modern transport hub. On 17 TPU provides transplant to underground stations of the Moscow Metro, and ten - on the suburban train lines. And we promise a system of covered passages and galleries that will protect passengers from the rain, cold and snow.
At the stations, you can recharge your phone, laptop, and even boil water in the kettle (if you suddenly carry any with an electric kettle).
Only the first year of operation, the MSC will be able to transport about 75 million people. Almost half of them are passengers subway, 20 million - railway transport, 13 million - land transport, and 7, 5 million - the inhabitants of nearby houses. By 2025, the projected passenger traffic to 300 million people a year.
On the "uselessness" of some stations: as the development of transport infrastructure will have a new round of development of industrial zones abandoned earlier, adjacent to the ring will increase their investment appeal. Maybe now a few stations are located in industrial areas of doubt, but after a few years, things can change.
It is expected that over time the Moscow central ring will reduce the load on the subway. On the northern section of Sokolniki line number of passengers shall be reduced by about 20 percent, Violet Metro - 18 percent, in the Ring - 15 percent. So in the subway will be so closely.
have won and train stations, as passengers will be able to make a change to the Moscow center ring, before you reach the city center. It is planned that the load on the Kursk station will decrease by 40 percent, at the Yaroslavl and Leningrad - by 20 percent, and at the Kazan and Riga - 30 percent during peak hours.
Once a teenager, I was walking along these paths and kicked the empty bottle. Today there will be walking passenger trains, and access to bystanders and the bullies gradually closed.
Ahh, green station!
Oh well. Meet the new metro scheme. CIP is marked in white with a red outline. The new map will show the approximate time of transplant route from Moscow central ring to the subway, and the type of transplant is indicated. Where the dotted line, it is necessary to go outside. Where one color flows into the other seats will be passing through the tunnel. clickable:
Well, as you?
