This year the Moscow tram celebrates its 125th anniversary. Sergei Sobyanin spoke about the development of this type of transport on your blog.

“The oldest Moscow public transport celebrates its anniversary in good shape. The tram is still popular and loved; about 700 thousand passengers use it every day,” noted the Moscow Mayor.

The multi-year rolling stock renewal program has almost been completed. Today, the share of new, comfortable and completely low-floor carriages is 95 percent. In a few years, all Moscow trams will be exactly like this.

The reconstruction of tram tracks is actively underway. The facilities are equipped with safe platforms that are raised above the level of the roadway. However, in Moscow, with its dense buildings, it is quite difficult to lay new tracks. However, in recent years, trams have again begun to run to Belorussky and Paveletsky stations.

Construction has now begun on two more new sections of tracks. The first one will run along Sergius Radonezhsky Street from the Ploshchad Ilyich metro station to Andronevskaya Square. It will connect existing lines and shorten the journey for passengers to Kursky Station. And in the future it is planned to organize a new direct route along the Entuziastov Highway to the Kursky Station.

The length of this section will be 2.1 kilometers, approximately another 480 meters will be reconstructed. Seven new stops will be equipped with raised platforms, information pylons and ramps for people with limited mobility and passengers with strollers.

Modern streetlights with energy-saving lamps will be installed along the tracks. Upon completion of the construction of the tram line, a comprehensive improvement of Sergius of Radonezhsky Street and adjacent courtyards is planned.

The second line, almost two kilometers long, will run along Masha Poryvaeva Street and Academician Sakharov Avenue from Komsomolskaya Square to Chistye Prudy. It will connect separate segments of the tram network in the east, center and south of the capital. The route will connect Sokolniki, the area of three stations and Paveletsky station, and passengers will be able to get to the stop they need without transfers.

There will be a total of 15 stops on the new section. They are equipped with modern pavilions with heated waiting areas and USB ports for charging gadgets.

Work on the construction of this line will take place in two stages. In 2024, it is planned to relocate utilities. In 2025, we will begin directly constructing new tram tracks.

Along the new line, the lighting system and architectural and artistic lighting of buildings will be modernized. And at tram stops near the Chistye Prudy metro station, in parks and in small green areas there will be landscape lighting. The trees will also be illuminated.

In addition, Academician Sakharov Avenue and Masha Poryvaeva Street will become more comfortable. Trees will be planted there, lawns will be laid out, benches will be installed and bicycle parking will be installed.

“The development of rail transport is one of the priorities

transport strategy of Moscow. And the tram plays one of the main roles in this work,” emphasized Sergei Sobyanin.

Safer, faster, quieter: Moscow trams are becoming more convenient for passengers
