In prospect, one more or a number of Winchester tunnels might emerge in Moscow, the head of Moscow Construction Department, Andrey Bochkarev, told at a press conference on Thursday.
“This year we have put into operation the first Moscow Winchester tunnel located at a junction of Narodnoye Opolchenye and Berzarina streets”, said Andrey Bochkarev. At the same time, he didn’t rule out that in prospect, there will be more of such tunnels.
“Peculiarity of this tunnel is that the flows of oncoming vehicles are not side by side, but one above the other. This was necessitated by efficiency of the use of land and urban space. Not everywhere one can build a broad tunnel, whereas Winchester tunnel might be constructed in restrained urban conditions,” added Bochkarev.
