Analysis of the Road and Transport Infrastructure in Moscow: From Th eory to Practice

2012. No. 2. P. 202–213 [issue contents]

This article examines problems of road and transport infrastructure of Moscow. It considers analytical models of large cities, and the transport problems of Moscow are investigated with the help of these models. A model, describing cause-effect connections between various problems of the road and transport structure of the city, is presented in the article. The study results in the definition of the priorities for the transport infrastructure development: the monopolicentric model suits more large cities such as Moscow, than the pure monocentric model. Policentric models, particularly ones with developed district centers, could become optimal for Moscow in terms of load on the road network. At such an arrangement of migration flows, employees would not have to move every day from their area to the center to work and back. The development of regional centers would create new jobs there.

Conclusions: the analysis of the road and transport infrastructure of the city of Moscow has shown that in order to solve the problems in the short and medium term, the following measures may be taken: the priority for public transport; the establishment of new car parks in the area of the final metro stations; the creation of a more coherent road network in the surrounding towns; the   denial of benefits for drivers by the status indication; the elimination of temporary and semi-permanent structures impeding traffic; the introduction of tightly regulated and “sensitively” paid parking in the city. In the long term measures to reduce the monocentricity and multi-functionality of the city are necessary to be taken.
