Where will the Moscow tram diameters go?

Weekly “Arguments and Facts” No. 17. The highlight of the program. How import substitution works and what Russia can do on its own 04/27/2022

For the first time in the last 40 years, a new tram line will be laid in the capital. It will go along Akademika Sakharov Avenue.

The new route will connect the existing routes for this type of transport at Komsomolskaya Square and at st. m. «Clean Ponds». According to the Moscow Deptrans, “a 1.6 km long section will create additional” tram diameters “. across the city. First — from Metrogorodok to Chertanovo, second — from Novogireev to metro„Universitet“. Modeling of the site showed that there will be no problems for motorists — the roadway on the street is wide enough and with a margin of throughput, and the work of the traffic light at the intersection with Garden Ring will not change».

Presumably, up to 2 million people will use these diameters. And 50 thousand of them — these are passengers who need to get from Komsomolskaya Square to Boulevard Ring (the future route will make it twice as fast as metro).

By the way, now experts are figuring out whether it is possible to do without stretching the contact network over the Garden Ring. There is an option in which the cars will cross Sadovoye on a battery charge (it is not so wide, and doing without extra wires — is quite a feasible task). Will this plan work out or not, Muscovites will know by the end of 2023 — the beginning of 2024 by by this time they promise to launch the new route.

Recall that the city is constantly updating the tram fleet. By the middle of the year, 20 more three-section Vityaz-Moscow trams will enter the routes. (Their total number will be 464). Moscow buys them from Russian manufacturers, who guarantee service maintenance of cars for 30 years.

Since the beginning of this year, citizens have made more than 43 million trips on trams. A traditional parade, held in mid-April, despite cold weather, gathered 20 thousand people. Human. Eight vintage cars (the oldest of which is 114 years old) paraded from the depot named after. Bauman to Ostankino pond and back. And then it could be inspected not only from the outside, but and from the inside. There is a chance that another — unscheduled — parade of trams.

By the way, you must have heard the news that the city will provide subsidies to organizations that are ready to recruit Muscovites who have recently lost their jobs through no fault of their own. The transport complex of the capital has already announced the availability of vacancies for professional drivers who are ready to “steer”, including trams.
