The extension of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line will improve transport services for about 500 thousand residents of several districts of Moscow.

The construction of the Lianozovo metro station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line has been completed by more than 70 percent. Sergei Sobyanin examined the progress of its construction.

“The Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line is one of the major metro construction projects in Moscow: 12 stations, from Maryina Roshcha to Seligerskaya, have already been built. We have already built nine, there are still three stations left to Fiztekh and to the village of Severny. The work is in full swing, most of the tunnels have been built, all tunnels must be completed by November. According to the plan, in 2023, all three stations should be launched simultaneously. The Lianozovo station is very important. MCD-1 passes nearby, and we need to move the railway station closer to the metro station in order to create a single transport and interchange hub. With colleagues from the “Russian Railways”, we docked plans. Thus, work on the construction of both the railway and the metro must be completed here at the same time, ”the Moscow Mayor noted.

All work is progressing on schedule, said Sergei Zhukov, general director of Mosmetrostroy.

“There are only three stations: Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy, Lianozovo and Fiztech. The total length will be about six kilometers. To date, 70 percent of the running tunnels have been completed. In November of this year, we are finishing all the running tunnels, and we are starting to install the superstructure of the tracks. Three stations in the U-turn: Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy, Lianozovo should complete the monolithic works by the end of this year, at the Fiztech station – approximately in September next year, “he added.


Muscovites supported the decision to extend the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line in the Lianozovo and Severny districts by voting in the Active Citizen project, in which 199,332 people took part. Of these, 156,374 people gave a definite answer, the rest found it difficult to answer or believed that the decision should be made by specialists. 84 percent of the participants voted for the extension of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line.

Construction of the section from Seligerskaya to Phystech began in 2019. The site will run along the Dmitrovskoe highway. Initially, part of the line beyond the Moscow Ring Road was supposed to be ground. However, at the beginning of 2020, Sergei Sobyanin decided to adjust the project – the section between Lianozovo and Fiztekh stations will be underground. This option has a number of significant advantages:

– reduction in the scope of work on the reconstruction and removal of utilities, including main water pipelines, main gas pipelines and power transmission lines;

– minimization of road closures during construction;

– reduction of noise and vibration impact on nearby houses;

– exclusion of the influence of weather conditions on the use of the line. This will ensure uninterrupted traffic and reduce costs.

Three stations will be opened as part of the Seligerskaya – Fiztech section:

– “Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy” – at the intersection of Dmitrovskoe highway and 800-letiya Moscow street;

– “Lianozovo” – at the intersection of Dmitrovskoye Highway and the first Moscow Central Diameter (MCD-1);

– “Phystech” – north of Akademik Landau Boulevard.

The extension of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line to the Fiztech station will improve transport services for about 500 thousand residents of the Vostochnoye Degunino, Lianozovo, Beskudnikovskiy, Dmitrovskiy, Severny districts, as well as the city of Dolgoprudny, Moscow Region. The travel time required to reach your destination from these areas will be reduced by about 20 minutes.

Passengers will be able to choose the most optimal routes using the metro, MCD or surface public transport. The opening of new stations will reduce the load on the terminal stations of the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya and partly the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya lines, as well as reduce the intensity of traffic on Dmitrovskoe highway and local streets.

At the moment, the tunneling of both running tunnels has been completed between site No. 30 behind the Seligerskaya station and the 800th Anniversary of Moscow Street.

The left running tunnel was built between the stations “Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy” and “Lianozovo”, the tunneling of the right running tunnel was completed by 73 percent.

The construction of the left running tunnel between Lianozovo and Fiztech stations was completed by 71 percent, and the right one – by 76. The tunneling boards crossed the Moscow Ring Road. Work has begun on the construction of all three stations, including Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy, Lianozovo and Fiztech.

Station “Lianozovo”

The future Lianozovo station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line is located at the intersection of Dmitrovskoe highway and MCD-1. Its two lobbies will overlook Dmitrovskoye Highway and Dubninskaya Street to land transport stops. It will be possible to transfer to the Lianozovo metro station from the MCD-1 platform of the same name.

Residential quarters of the Lianozovo and Dmitrovsky districts are within walking distance from the future station. Residents will no longer have to travel by ground transport to Altufyevo station in order to change to the metro.

According to the architects’ idea, the Lianozovo station will be decorated in restrained colors – the main colors will be dark gray and beige. Columns, ceiling and track walls will be faced with metal panels, the floor – with polished slabs of light gray granite and gabbro-diabase. Ground pavilions will be decorated with light green panels – in the color of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line on the metro map.

Now the earthworks are being completed, the specialists are laying the monolithic reinforced concrete of the future station complex. Contractor – Mosmetrostroy JSC.

In the future, it is planned to organize a full-fledged transport interchange hub at the Lianozovo station, providing a transfer between the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line, MCD-1 and surface public transport.

For this, the Lianozovo railway station can be moved 350 meters towards the Moscow region and two new passenger platforms and two underground lobbies can be built. The northern lobby is being integrated with the metro station. The southern lobby will be combined with an underground pedestrian crossing through Lianozovsky passage, which was opened in May 2020.
