“Active Citizen” starts the survey about the big ring line
Voting started on the Active Citizen portal, during which Muscovites will be able to express their attitude to the project of the Big Ring Line of the underground
Muscovites are invited to tell if they support the project, and what changes they consider necessary to be made in order to make its implementation most effective.
“Of course, the big metro ring line is useful. She creates a lot of connections. This is not a new invention. I recall that the Big Circle Line was envisaged by previously existing general plans. And the Kashirskaya-Kakhovskaya section, which will be included in the BCL, was opened 50 years ago. But since then, unfortunately, for many decades nothing has been built. And now it is being built almost over its entire length – this is very important, since it will unload the center and create new additional links between the central regions of Moscow. This is only welcome. Along with the MCC, this configuration will create eight – two large ring lines at different distances from the center”, says Chairman of the Russian Passengers Union Kirill Yankov
The large ring line of the metro is the largest project in the history of metro construction in Russia and in the world. The first section – five stations – was opened in the winter of 2018. The length of the Big Ring will be 70 km with 31 stations. From the BKL stations it will be possible to make 23 transfers to other metro lines, four transfers to the Moscow Central Ring, six transfers to the first two Moscow central diameters (WDC-1 “Odintsovo-Lobnya”, and MCD-2 “Nakhabino-Podolsk), 11 transfers on the line of the railway.
