The closure of the site is necessary, since all work will be carried out during the day.
The closure of a section of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line is necessary to integrate the engineering systems of the Prospekt Vernadskogo station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) and the station of the same name on the Sokolnicheskaya Line. This was told by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Development Policy and Construction Andrey Bochkarev…
“The closure of the section of the Sokolnicheskaya line between the stations“ Sportivnaya ”and“ Troparevo ”, which is scheduled for the period from July 17 to August 8, is necessary to integrate the engineering systems of the Prospekt Vernadsky station under construction in the south-western section of the BCL and the existing station of the same name on the red line, and also the organization of a transfer hub between them “, – said the deputy mayor.
It is necessary to close the metro section, because the work related to the disconnection of power supply, communication and water supply lines will be carried out during the day. It is impossible to organize them at night due to strict regulations, the duration of operations and their sequence. In addition, it is planned to deliver materials from the electric depot by railroad cars.
“We will try to carry out all the necessary work as quickly as possible,” said Andrey Bochkarev.
The length of the south-western section of the Big Circle Line will be 7.7 kilometers. There will be four stations here. The commissioning of the section will improve the road situation in the west and south-west of the capital, relieve the central metro stations and adjacent sections of radial lines, primarily Sokolnicheskaya and Solntsevskaya.
