During the second stage of work, the main attention will be paid to the creation of convenient access roads to the station.
Specialists of the municipal economy complex have begun the second stage of the improvement of the territory near the Eastern Station, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government Peter Biryukov.
“As part of the first stage, pedestrian routes from the residential sector to the station were put in order: the asphalt-concrete pavement was replaced, and convenient paths were made in place of the so-called folk paths,” he said. “New lights with energy-saving lamps have been installed to ensure the safety of pedestrians.”
During the second stage of the improvement, the main attention will be paid to the arrangement of convenient access roads to the station.
“A new access road from Amurskaya Street to the station will be built, its width will be seven meters, which will allow launching public transport routes there,” said Pyotr Biryukov.
A large parking space with security and video surveillance will be organized under the overpass of the North-Eastern Expressway, and a bicycle box will be equipped for storing bicycles. A lawn with an area of more than 13 thousand square meters will appear nearby, over 30 new lanterns will also be installed, benches and trash cans will be installed. It is planned to complete the work in the fall of 2021.
The Eastern Station was built in 2020–2021 as part of the large Cherkizovo transport interchange hub, which unites the Cherkizovskaya station of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line, the Moscow Central Ring Lokomotiv station and surface urban transport. 24 pairs of long-distance trains from the Kursk railway station were transferred to Vostochny. Due to the convenient location of the new station, its passengers will be able to save about 40 minutes on travel.
