The Volokolamsk highway overpass near metro station Tushinskaya in Moscow is to go into commission on City Day, reporters were told today at the construction site by the Mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin.
The site of the Volokolamskoye Highway, according to him, is one of the most problematic in the city. Nearby is the Tushino transport hub, one of the largest in the city, and Spartak metro station. That is why there is a need for road expansion.
The CEO of the construction contractor ‘Glavstroygroup’, Victor Tikhonov, assured us that span construction has begun and 80% of the platform support is ready.
650 people are working at the site and must finish everything by City Day. The deputy mayor of Moscow for urban policy and construction, Marat Khusnullin, drew the attention of the audience to the fact that the planned construction period for such projects is usually 36 months, but in this instance it will be completed in 15.
