Moscow authorities stubbornly continue to transfer citizens to public transport, and certainly to land. By October, the fifth dedicated lane will start operating in the capital; it will run along the Warsaw highway from the Annino metro station to Serpukhovskaya. Such lanes are already operating on Volokolamsk, Leningradsk, Shchelkovo highways and on Andropov Avenue.
So that car owners can safely leave their cars on the outskirts and transfer to a bus or trolleybus, just two hundred meters from the Annino metro station, an intercepting parking lot for 1, 500 cars will open in late September. Parking on it will be free. Parking races are organized both from the Warsaw highway, and from the MKAD. Looking at the construction site now, it’s hard to believe that in a month or so, all the work will be completed: the cover has not even begun to be laid, and the fenced area so far is just a dug out wasteland. However, according to residents of the district, work at the facility was in full swing, especially after Sergei Sobyanin visited the construction site.
“There used to be a dump,” said Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Public Utilities and Beautification Peter Biryukov about the site of the new parking complex. - There were abandoned orphaned rooms in which the homeless lived. Now the territory will be well-groomed and landscaped."
"Vydelenka" should become an alternative to the Serpukhov-Timiryazevskaya metro line. But under the ground, the path from the Moscow Ring Road to the center will be much quicker to overcome, so experts need to doubt the need for this dedicated lane “In the confrontation between land transport and the metro, the second looks better: faster and easier,” they say in the Moscow traffic jam center.
Transport companies and ordinary motorists are confident that autumn innovations will lead to collapse. “Muscovites will not change buses if they have a car,” says George Danilov, director of the Lotos taxi company. - We have such a squeamish attitude towards public transport. But traffic jams will be terrible. It seems that the authorities should deal with traffic jams, and they only exacerbate the situation.”
