Moscow Walking Accessibility Factor

Walking accessibility factor, which shows how many residents get to school or to work on foot in Moscow is an average of 25%, RIA Novosti reported with reference to the statement by the Deputy Mayor for Urban Policy and the Construction, Marat Khusnullin.

      "Here in Moscow, unfortunately, average factor throughout the city is 25%," the official said. He added that, for example, when constructing the new Chinese cities this ratio marks 50%, that is, about half of the city residents could get to work or to school on foot. "This is the main solution to the transport issue", Mr. Khusnullin underlined.

      According to him, in coming years the authorities are planning a large volume of transport constructions. However, it cannot solve the transportation problem, as Moscow already has a huge amount of cars: the Russian capital is second only to New York in number of cars per thousand people and every year the number of cars is increasing by 4-5%. "The infrastructure, in turn, cannot grow by 4-5% per year," the deputy mayor said.
