New metro scheme of Moscow with the CIT: will it be easier to move around?
Metropolitan Metro is constantly changing. New stations and lines are being built. This allows you to combine different areas of the city and suburbs into a single transport network. Metropolitan allows you to quickly get from one area to another, without idle for several hours in traffic jams, which in Moscow - not uncommon. One of the main lines is the ring line, which until 2016 was the only branch of the metro that intersected with all the other lines. This year, the Moscow Railway (Moscow Ring Road) opened. It partially duplicates the second ring of the highway, and in the north of Moscow passes above it. In the article we will tell you about the peculiarities of the CZHD, how the new Moscow metro system looks like, let's consider other important points.
Metro of Moscow
The Metropolitan of Moscow has one of the most complex schemes in the world. It consists of 14 lines and 203 stations, among which there are both underground and ground ones. Most of the metro lines pass through the whole city. There are also short lines that have in their composition only 2-3 stations and connect non-intersecting branches. Also there is 2 ring, one of which is not quite a traditional underground. It will be discussed later.
New ring line: what it looks like
The Moscow Ring Railway is a railroad for the most part of an open ground type. It passes in the flat territory, over the roads and difficult areas passes through the bridge. On the new ring line 31 station, among which there are both separate and intersecting with other metro lines.
Before MKZhD go not ordinary trains, but trains, more like trains. These trains are called "swallows". They are equipped much better than simple trains running in the underground metro. They are larger in size, more spacious, they have more seats. They also have toilets, screens, space for carrying prams and bicycles. The cars even promise to be equipped with sockets for recharging gadgets, but the Wi-Fi network is still in doubt. Make it want, but when and how qualitatively, it is still unknown.
New ring line: how it works
Moscow Metro scheme with the CWC shows that many stations of the ring line will have transitions at the metro station. Such stations will be 17. When transplanting from 11 stations, the transition to the metro will be through closed galleries: metro engineers call this the principle of "dry legs". With 10 stations, the CZHD can be switched to suburban trains. And with ground transportation stops, it is planned to link each stop. This has already been done, but not yet in full. To get from one station to another, you need from 2 to 5 minutes.
Trains run at intervals of 5-6 minutes during rush hours (morning and evening), 10-15 minutes at the rest of the time. The time of work does not differ from the rest of the subway - from 6 in the morning to one in the morning.
The fare for the MLC is the same as in the subway - 50 rub. Also, the same travel cards operate ("Troika", "90 minutes", preferential, etc.). Unless during the transition from the metro station to the station the MKDZ will have to use the card again or pay the fare using a single ticket.
How the subway scheme looks now
The updated scheme of Moscow metro with MKZHD began to look more extensive and full. The metropolitan began to cover a much larger territory, and to get from one station to another (for which earlier it was required, for example, 3 transplantation) now can be with 1 transplantation or altogether without them.
Advantages and disadvantages of the LRC
Cherepovets, like any innovation in the big city, has its advantages and disadvantages. First consider the advantages:
- Reduction of the time spent for a trip from point A to point B on the Moscow metro. The scheme with the new stations, presented above, allows, perhaps, not to orientate faster in it, but now it's become more realistic to make a trip without unnecessary transfers.
- Reducing the passenger flow on the first ring line and, as a consequence, its unloading.
- The new transport scheme of Moscow metro with the CWC covers remote areas of Moscow and the Moscow region.
- Development of infrastructure and construction of empty areas near the new stations of the CZD.
- Many did not like the updated metro in Moscow. The scheme with the new stations baffles both tourists and local people. But we think, you can get used to it.
- Travel by CZHD is paid separately from the standard metro. That is, it turns out that it is advantageous to travel on a new road only to those who have preferential travel or who go without transplants.
- A temporary drawback is that there is not yet a new metro scheme for Moscow with the CWD, so you have to rely either on the old schemes, or on mobile applications and printed cards. But this will change within a couple of months.
In the future, it is planned to complete all the transitions to adjacent stations of the underground metro, to take out the exits from the MLC to public transport stops. While the Moscow metro system with the Moscow Railway is not very well known not only for Russians, but even for Muscovites. Therefore, there is already a replacement of signs with the scheme in the metro and on the streets. The flow of people to the CZKD is still not so large, but gradually increasing the number of passengers and, consequently, increasing profits.
Also, next to the stations of the MLC, it is planned to build new residential complexes, since previously hard-to-reach territories ceased to be such. So, for example, a plan for the construction of the former ZIL plant site has already been proposed. In general, it is expected that the MKZH will breathe new life into remote areas and into the transport infrastructure of the capital.
