Moscow plans to open another 14 MCD stations in 2021, said Deputy Moscow Mayor for Urban Development and Construction Andrei Bochkaryov at the Moscow Urban Forum online conference.

“Next year we plan to complete five new stations and rebuild nine existing MCD stations. The key task for 2021, set by the Moscow Mayor, is to develop the MCD-3 and MCD-4 infrastructure, including the building of additional railway capacity, station platforms and transit hubs,” the Deputy Mayor said.

Since the start of 2020, 14 new stations have opened for passengers. The integration of the NATI railway platform that will become part of the MCD-3 and the Likhobory station on the Moscow Central Circle line has been completed. The reconstruction of the Podolsk station on the MCD-2 line is expected to be finished before the end of the year.

“The implementation of the MCD programme is one of the priorities in transport development in the city for the next few years. The construction of new stations and platforms makes it possible to integrate the MCDs into the city’s common transport system,” said Andrei Bochkaryov.

The first diameter lines, the Belorussko-Savyolovsky MCD-1 (Odintsovo-Lobnya) and the Kursko-Rizhsky MCD-2 (Nakhabino-Podolsk), entered service in the autumn of last year. Today the MCD-1 and the MCD-2 cover 132 km of railway and have 60 stations. Passengers can change to the metro, the Moscow Central Circle and Moscow Railway radial lines at 20 stations. About 130 million rides have been taken on the MCDs since they opened for service.

The development of Leningradsko-Kazansky MCD-3 infrastructure (Zelenograd to Ramenskoye) and the Kievsko-Gorkovsky MCD-4 (Aprelevka to Zheleznodorozhny) will be the main task for 2021.
