Moscow: From Balaklavka To Kashirka

The paths of the Paveletsky direction are worthy of mention in the Guinness Book of Records: from Nakhimovsky Prospekt to the Moscow Ring Road - not a single crossing. For a long time it was necessary to connect the direct road Balaklava Avenue along Kantemirovskaya Street with Borisovskie Prudy Street, which would provide crossings through two railway directions (in addition to the Paveletskaya, the Kursk railway line also runs here). They planned to begin construction back in 2009, and the launch of the South Rockada was supposed to take place in 2011. But the crisis hit … Now the situation in the Warsaw-Kashirka area is so terrible that you can no longer wait. To begin with, a “puncture” will be made from Balaklava Avenue to Kantemirovskaya Street via Paveletskaya Railway. The length of the projected segment is 6475 meters.



According to experts, this is obvious to every motorist, the new highway will improve the transport situation in the south of the capital, significantly unloading the Kashirskoye and Warsaw highway, as well as Proletarsky Prospekt. On the road, three lanes in each direction will be organized - alas, it does not work out more. But at the same time, in the area of interchanges, the roadway will be expanded to four lanes.

There is a road project, it was ready back in 2007, but it seems that they will adjust it. Indeed, over the years, much has changed. A shopping complex has been built, along the roads there are parking lots. In the capital's construction complex, they say that this year 150 million rubles will be spent on the design of the Balaklavka-Kashirka section. What awaits us for this money?

According to officials, the road that connects Balaklava Avenue and Kashirskoye Highway will become part of the Rublevo-Kapotnya link. These are almost all the details, because the new project is only at the start. And according to the old, at the junction of Balaklavka with Varshavka, a three-level denouement should appear. Further, the rokada would pass under the highway with an 80-90-meter tunnel, and the highway itself went up to the overpass. Using the ground level, it was planned to make turns. In the area of the Paveletsky railway line, the road would dive into a small puncture tunnel under a high railway embankment. A bridge would cross the Chertanovka river, along which the highway would cross to its other side. Another crucial interchange - two-story - at the intersection with Proletarsky Prospekt. The tunnel here prevents the construction of a shallow underground line.

Recently it became known that the new highway, as previously planned, will pass along the border of the Kotlyakovo industrial zone, through a natural complex in the Chertanovka river area. Further, the route will pass "through the existing residential development along Kantemirovskaya Street." Sounds ominous. But more precisely, Kantemirovskaya Street will be expanded along the even, northern side, as planned, up to 8 lanes. The distance to residential buildings there is about 80 m. These are vacant lots, open parking lots and flat garages. Where all this will move (there are about a thousand cars), until they report. According to the old project, Cantemirovka was supposed to be expanded with a power line that goes along the road, replacing the overhead line with a cable. The freed up space even made it possible to create a protective strip of green spaces.

At the intersection with Caspian Street, a new highway will pass through the Kursk railway, cut off the corner of the Tsaritsyno Natural History Park and exit onto Borisovskie Prudy Street. How? It was previously thought through a tunnel. In NPO-5 NIIIP of the General Plan, where the first project was being developed, then it was said that Tsaritsyno Park prevents the passage of this site on the rocky ground. According to that project, the length of the tunnel was about 1.5 km, two three-lane “sleeves” with one-way traffic, connected by several emergency “moves”, were supposed to be in it. The diameter of the structure (14.2 m) made it possible to make it two-tier: the upper one was planned to be used for automobile traffic, the lower one for communication. But all this was planned earlier … As it will be now - the details, we must think, will follow.

In my opinion…
