London (CNN) – The Russian capital of Moscow is Europe's most populous city. More than 11 million people call Moscow home - bringing with them nearly four million cars.

As Moscow's population continues to rise, it's becoming clear the city has outgrown its infrastructure. The vast highways that cut through the center are so clogged with traffic that parts of Moscow are almost always at a standstill. Even the imposing metro system is not keeping up with demand.

The city authorities say there's just one option – expansion. Over the next 20 years they plan to more than double the capital's size, swallowing up a huge area to the south.

Roads and rail will be improved, and eventually government offices, universities, and hospitals will move out of the historic centre. This week's Future Cities explores urban planning on a truly vast scale, and what the people really think about it.
