City of Megaprojects. From Results to New Goals
The smooth functioning of large megacities builds upon the quality and accessibility of the city’s housing, transport and recreational infrastructure. Moscow is one of the world’s leaders in construction. It is expected that in the period of 2012 – 2018 Moscow will have built more than 22 million square meters of housing and thus kick-started a massive housing renovation programme. The city is implementing a programme for road construction and transport infrastructure, which has already seen launched two major projects that are expected to reverse traffic congestion and make the city more accessible – the Moscow Central Circle and the Central Diameters, a RER-style network. Moscow is developing actively a new generation of social infrastructure. The new Zaryadye Park, a unique landscape project which was opened to public in 2017, received several esteemed architectural rewards. The Moscow International Medical Cluster has been completed in Skolkovo. The Luzhniki Stadium has been restored for the World Cup 2018.
