Moscow outbound routes improvement standards album

Album of standardized solutions for complex improvement of the territory of Moscow outbound routes (PDF, 213 MB)

Task: to design a guide on improvement of Moscow streets that would set an example.

Release date: October 05 2015

Outbound routes are streets that connect the center of Moscow with major external highways leading to other cities. Apart from car traffic, radial avenues provide for pedestrian transportation: they accommodate public transportation stops, major city objects and parks. In order to increase the comfort and safety of outbound routes, state enterprise GlavAPU has developed standards for their improvement that will be used for planning new streets and renovating existing ones. An album presenting standardized solutions for improvement of outbound routes in Moscow was diligently created at the studio.

Chapters are separated by half titles

Five types of functional planning sections are distinguished on outbound routes depending on their purpose and patterns of use. Each chapter is dedicated to one of the types.
