The idea of building a central ring road (CKAD) had been a topic of discussion for a while. The design for the Central Ring Road took four years, from 2008 to 2011. More than 100 specialized project institutions and organizations participated in the preparation of the project. The construction works began on the laying of a new expressway, which will pass through the territory of Moscow and "new Moscow", 50 kilometers from Moscow ring road (MCAD) . It is estimated by specialists that CKAD will be a catalyst to economic growth in the whole region. Road construction is planned to be completed by 2025.

Prospects for opening CKAD
The new route will be the main road of the high-speed road network for all of central Russia. It's going to be 529.9 kilometers. The CKAD will relieve the traffic on the urban highways (those that continue on to Moscow) and the Moscow ring road MCAD from the transit of goods: heavy vehicles travelling the long distances to Moscow could be redirected to their Destination.
Opening the route will reduce the cost of freight transport and transport costs. However, through the organization of rapid transit traffic, the negative impact on the environment will be reduced by unloading existing roads and human settlements through which truck caravans are now being followed.
The construction of CKAD will help to establish many major international transport corridors in the territory of the Moscow Region: London-Nizhny Novgorod, Helsinki-southeast Europe, north-south and Helsinki-Nizhny Novgorod.
The plan is to build a central ring road in five phases (launch complexes), on the principle of public-private Partnership (PPP) *. This means that the state, by allocating subsidies from the federal budget and funds from the National Welfare Fund of the Russian Federation and private investors, participate in the financing of the facility. Each launch complex will be built as a separate PPP project.
