On the 15th of March, the government of the Moscow region approved the planning design for the “Podolsk – Klimovsk – Domodedovo – Konstantinovo – Ramenskoye” tramway line section.
As Constrution.ru was told by the regional press office, the project was elaborated by the Head Architecture Department of the Moscow region. In the opinion of the Deputy Chairman of the regional government, German Elyanyushkin, this is a project unprecedented in its scale and complicated nature.
The total length of the line will be 250 km. It will connect 20 cities and improve the availability of transport by a factor of 2 or 3. At present, the first start-up line is being worked on, which will become part of the single transportation system of Moscow and the Moscow region, united by commuting hubs with suburban trains and metro stations.
Implementation of the project will make passengers more mobile, with more interior comfort. The length of the line in the Moscow region will be 192 km, and in Moscow, 54 km.
A light rail system will connect 4 international airports – Domodedovo, Vnukovo, Sheremetyevo, and Ramenskoye. The price of the construction will be equivalent to 3 bln euro.
