About five stations of the Big Circle Line (BCL) – Novatorskaya, Zyuzino, Vernadsky Prospekt, Narodnoe Opolchenie and Petrovsky Park – work began last year. They are planned to be completed by September 2021.
This year, workers will begin landscaping areas adjacent to eight more stations. These are Aminevskaya, Davydkovo, Sokolniki, Elektrozavodskaya, Michurinsky Prospekt, Vorontsovskaya, Kuntsevskaya BCL and Butyrskaya of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line. The work will be finished by the second half of next year.
“As part of projects to improve the pedestrian and transport accessibility of these metro stations, new convenient sidewalks will be installed, which will be separated from the roadway with a curb, and will replace the asphalt concrete surface of the roads,” said Pyotr Biryukov. “Large-scale landscaping is envisaged – planting trees and shrubs, arranging lawns, benches of various modifications will be put on the routes to the metro”.
For public transport passengers, modern stopping pavilions with charging stations for mobile devices and wireless communication will be installed. They will also equip parking pockets.
The head of the municipal economy complex stressed that it is planned to replace the old one and install additional lighting. Several hundred lanterns with energy efficient lamps will appear on the territory near the new stations.
The Big Ring Metro Line is the largest project in the history of metro construction in Russia and one of the largest in the world. The BCL will be 70 kilometers long and will include 31 stations. It will unload existing stations inside the ring and the Subway Circle Line.
Now 10 BCL stations are open for passengers. In February 2018, Delovoy Tsentr, Shelepikha, Khoroshevskaya, CSKA and Petrovsky Park were opened in the north-west of Moscow. At the end of the same year, another station appeared – “Savelovskaya”. In March 2020, the first passengers were received by Lefortovo, Aviamotornaya and Nizhegorodskaya, in December – by Electrozavodskaya. In 2021, it is planned to open 11 more stations on the Big Circle Line.
