Sobyanin announced the start of construction of HSR-1 Moscow-Petersburg

Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin , Russian Transport Minister Vitaly Savelyev and Russian Railways General Director Oleg Belozerov reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the start of construction of the Moscow section of the Moscow-St. Petersburg high-speed highway (HSM-1). Sobyanin spoke about this in his TG channel .

HSR-1 will become a key transport link connecting the largest urban agglomerations and economic centers of Russia, which are home to about 40.2 million people – 27% of the country’s population. Reducing the travel time between Moscow and St. Petersburg to 2 hours 15 minutes will accelerate the development of tourism and business activity, create new jobs, reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere and the number of accidents, promoting the use of environmentally friendly railway transport.

There are 16 stops planned on the route, four of which are located within Moscow. Work on the Moscow section will be carried out in dense urban and suburban areas without stopping traffic on the Oktyabrskaya Railway. Tasks include laying additional tracks from Leningradsky Station to Alabushevo, building six bridges and five railway overpasses, as well as reconstructing three road overpasses.

The passenger infrastructure at the stations Firsanovskaya, Skhodnya, Podrezkovo, Novopodrezkovo, Molzhaninovo, Khimki, Levoberezhnaya, Khovrino and Ostankino will be modernized, which will turn into new city stations according to MCD standards.

The reconstruction will also affect the future HSR-1 stations: Leningradsky Station, Rizhskaya, Petrovsko-Razumovskaya and Zelenograd-Kryukovo, providing opportunities for transfers to 14 metro stations and the MCD, as well as to all ground urban transport.
