Sobyanin Says Work on Leningradskoye Shosse Will End Soon

Mayor Sergei Sobyanin offered assurances Tuesday that construction work on Leningradskoye Shosse would wrap up soon, providing some relief from the traffic jams that have clogged two main arteries running through northern Moscow.

"Progress on the roads is moving forward as quickly as possible," Sobyanin said at a City Hall meeting.

He said the stretch of Leningradskoye Shosse between the Sokol metro station and the Moscow Ring Road and the construction of an interchange on the MKAD would be completed "in a few months," Interfax reported.

But Sobyanin did not give a time frame for when an extensive overhaul on Dmitrovskoye Shosse might be complete, saying only that the finished road would be one of the most sophisticated in the city.
