There is currently a plan being developed along with business owners on adding acceleration lanes, extra exits and safer exits. It will be finished in March 2015. Here is one of the only articles I could find, it's in Russian (also has video and infographics):
http://www.m24.ru/articles/59550
http://stroi.mos.ru/rekonstrukciya-k...vyazok-na-mkad
Almost all interchanges on the MKAD are being rebuilt to improve the flow of traffic, which includes acceleration lanes. Also, the city of moscow is building a few chordal highways? (not really sure the details have been pretty vague and each chord is different) and a large toll ring road to go around the whole of the Moscow region (525 km long)

I understand, MKAD was upgraded during very hard years in the 1990's just widening the road and quitting the pedestrian at-grade-crossings, that's all.

Wow; what awesome and futuristic designs! The best looking highways I've ever seen IMO...

That city highways are awesome. Also, they mention collector lines and roads and exclusion of cloverleaf interchanges and building acceleration lanes on/around MKAD! It's a pity these urban motorways tend to end into some shitty "highway" and drop from 12 to 4 lanes after MKAD...

Doesn't Moscow Region have it's own plans except TSKAD? I mean, it consists of a large belt of many quite big cities...

Yes, several new roads will be built connecting large cities in the Moscow region, primarily in the East and the Southwest. However, information on them is very limited besides "we're gonna build them eventually" so I don't know anything about them. If you look at cities East of Moscow (Reutov etc) on openstreetmap you will see one of these roads, not really under construction yet.
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Mo...44d6cc5757cf4c This interchange will be the end of the Northwestern Chord and the start of the road I talked about above. That's what I imagine will happen anyway.

The main problem is the poor shape of the circle connecting all those roads.

Funny, 'dispetcher'

'Dlya' means fast or something, right?

"Dlya" means "for", "line for transponders"

I thought Odintsovo bypass was a motorway, not expressway.

Yes, but this is confusing for English speakers learning Russian. The English word "for" translates into Russian as either для (dlya) or за (za) depending on whether the meaning is, for example, "a gift for her" or an exchange, for example, "a refund for a returned purchase".

Not directly related to road infra, but funny stuff: due to ruble devaluation, car sales skyrocketed, both Russian, Belorussian, Kazakh citizens are now buying cars in mass quantities, because cars become extremely cheap.
E.g. this one ~5000 euro


~4000 euro


New stuff is coming next year, presumably all < 10000euro



There are plenty of foreign car manufactures in Russia too, manufacturing all together ~2mln cars a year.

Have you got any other AADT figures for Moscow and surroundings? I have been long searching for them. Btw Odintsovo by-pass looks like a proper motorway for me?
