Three new railway stations to be built in Moscow

Three railway stations for high-speed trains are going to be built in Moscow soon. One of them will appear near the Kalanchevsky Square, the second one – on Ilich Square and the third one will be built in the area of Moscow City business center, Interfax reports.

Moscow’s chief architect, Alexander Kuzmin, stated at a session of the city government that the capital needs new railway terminals.

“For the time being, there are nine railway stations in Moscow. We need to organize high-speed communication to have Moscow linked with European capitals,” Kumin said.

The official pointed out that high-speed service can be organized on such directions as Moscow-St. Petersburg, Moscow-South, Moscow-East and Moscow-West.

“The construction of additional railways and new railway stations would make a journey from Moscow to Berlin last for about eight hours,” the official said.

Moscow currently works on another major railway project to connect the city center with three airports – Domodedovo, Sheremetyevo and Vnukovo. Passengers will be able to use the new terminal to reach any of the three international airports and travel to St. Petersburg on a new high-speed train.

An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
