The builders are assembling the platform sheds and erecting the lobby walls.
Reconstruction of the Matveevskaya station of the future fourth Moscow Central Diameter (MCD-4) has been completed by almost 60 percent. This was told by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow, the head of Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure Development Maxim Liksutov…
“Together with our colleagues from Russian Railways, we continue large-scale work to bring the stations of the Kiev direction of the future MCD-4 to the standards of Moscow transport. In 2020, Pobeda, Michurinets and Krekshino stations were reconstructed in this direction. And this year we plan to open six more stations after reconstruction: Vnukovo, Tolstopaltsevo, Matveevskaya, Kokoshkino, Meshcherskaya and Aprelevka, ”said Maxim Liksutov.
The builders have already started assembling canopies on new platforms and are erecting the walls of the passenger lobby from the side of Matveevskaya Street. Trains now stop at temporary wooden platforms.
The Matveevskaya station is located in the west of Moscow. After the completion of the reconstruction, it will turn into a modern train station. There will be two platforms connected by a covered overpass. Passengers will be protected from snow and rain by canopies along the entire length of the platforms. Crossing the railway will not only be safe, but also comfortable for all passengers – the crossing will be equipped with elevators and escalators.
The first two diameters were opened in November 2019. Today there are 60 stations at MCD-1 and MCD-2. From 20 you can change to the metro and the Moscow Central Ring.
MCD-3, which will connect Zelenograd and Ramenskoye, is planned to open in late 2022 – early 2023. MCD-4 will connect the Kiev and Gorky directions of the Moscow railway, MCD-5 – the Yaroslavl and Paveletskoye directions.
