MOSCOW (Metro Rail News): Last Saturday marks an important day in the public infrastructure system of Moscow. President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, and the Mayor of Moscow, Sergey Sobyanin, launched the Moscow Central Diameter-4 Line, a suburban commuter line that runs across the Moscow city. It is the longest among the diameters- its length is 86 Kilometers. 

It runs from West to East through Moscow & connects 7 central railway terminals of the capital. It facilitates 18 transfer stations with 36 options of interchange to the metro. It connects more than 20 districts of Moscow & 4 cities in the Moscow region. 

“We forecast that it will be used by 260-270 thousand people per day by the end of 2023. At the same time, the infrastructure is designed to accommodate future growth in passenger traffic. We will continue to develop the diameter after the launch of MCD-4: we will build two Moscow city stations, Begovaya and Rizhskaya, and renew the rolling stock,” – said Maksim Liksutov, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for transport.

Such trains run on the new line: EP2D & EP2DM, which run at intervals of up to 5-5.5 minutes during peak hours & without interruptions during the daytime. It is expected to decrease the footfall on other metro lines by 9% while its daily passenger count may reach 455 thousand people.
