Are these road works just a rumor circulating among neighbors, or was there an official, written announcement?
Preparations or even the project stage has begun, as residents adjacent to the site were informed that their buildings would be surrounded by new roads from all sides.

The official said that the design of the park in the Southern District Chertanovo has not yet begun. The process of building the theme park is estimated at five years. Thus, the opening of the Universal park will be no earlier than 2022.
"This year we have approved their draft plan, which was approved as part of a project surveying. At this stage, the investor can build, said Timofeev. If they finish the concept of the park this year and the design next year, they may move on-site, I think, in 2017. They've got 1 million square feet to built on, this is a huge area, it will take at least five years to complete."
It's not cancelled. It takes a long time to build an indoor theme park.
Another cancelled Universal Studios project?
All photos were taken this week. Nothing has happened so far. The metal structure / construction on the first two photos has been there for the past two years already, nothing new.
On hold? Why? Related to the political upheaval, or for other reasons?
The mall, hotel and arena are moving forward. The theme park portion is on hold.
Any update about that park?
