    Implementation of the Compatible Circuit for the Organization of Road Traffic for the Moscow City Road Network

    Moscow, Russia

Project Summary


This project encompasses the development of Moscow’s Integrated Road Traffic Management Scheme and is specifically focused on the Moscow Ring Road, outbound routes, the Third Ring Road, and all the streets within the Third Ring Road. The area comprises approximately 1,000 kilometers and 1,250 streets. State Unitary Enterprise MosgortransNIIproekt was contracted to facilitate traffic management projects that would enhance traffic capacity and reduce accidents on Moscow’s roadways. Implementing the standards required by the Center for the Organization of Road Traffic will increase road safety, improve the transition area, and actualize the plans to develop parking spaces, freight logistics, and taxis.


The organization created an electronic solution that streamlined and simplified information exchange among the transport organizations and accelerated project development for organizing road traffic throughout Moscow. The team put in place a BIM approach that linked every project of the Organization of Road Traffic to a map that could be fully displayed for design transparency. State Unitary Enterprise uses capabilities provided by the BIM methodology at each stage of the project. These capabilities include accelerating project implementation, having engineers work on the design simultaneously, and creating a transparent approval process.


These tasks were achieved using Bentley applications, which allowed the team to accelerate project work while moving to a BIM approach. The underlying applications combine the functionality of geospatial information systems and CAD capabilities and reduce information exchange time by 70% among team members and project stakeholders. This time savings allowed State Unitary Enterprise to streamline workflows and hold down resource costs. Moreover, not having to create a GIS system saved 15% to 20% of the total project costs, and an additional 5% to 7% annually to maintain the system.


State Unitary Enterprise used OpenCities Map and ProjectWise to house all information that summarized the results of Moscow’s integrated road traffic management scheme. At each stage of the project, the team used Bentley’s BIM methodology capabilities to accelerate project implementation and approval time.

  • The Moscow Ring Road comprises 1,000 kilometers and 1,250 streets.
  • Using Bentley’s BIM methodology, the team did not have to create a GIS system, which saved the project 15% to 20% in total costs, and an additional 5% to 7% in annual maintenance costs.
  • The underlying design applications combine the functionality of geospatial information systems and CAD capabilities, allowing for a 70% reduction in information exchange time.
  • “The project allowed us to reach a new level of coordination and efficiency while complying with Russian state standards. The automatic generation of data sheets has fully eliminated the company’s expenses in time for compiling supporting documentation.”
