Large circular subway line will carry twice more passengers than the Moscow Central ring (ICC), said the mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobjanin in interview to TV channel «Russia-1».

«Metro in its technology and traffic, of course, will give odds to MCK, and the Big ring road will be carried at least two times more passengers than today.» — said the head of the capital.

«This (the Big circle line — ed.) the possibility of cross-linking many areas of Moscow, is to reduce the time of movement in the way, and in some areas two or three times,» — said Sobyanin.

The third interchange circuit of the Moscow metro, built at a distance of ten kilometers from the ring line, once completed, will be the longest underground ring in the world and the busiest Metropolitan branch. The line will include 31 station 21 and transfer to other metro and ICC. Its length is 67 kilometers.
