Specialists have started to install metal structures.
The construction of entrance pavilions has begun at the Vorontsovskaya station under construction on the southern section of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Moscow Metro, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for Urban Development Policy and Construction Andrey Bochkarev.
“At the Vorontsovskaya station of the southern section of the BCL, work has been completed on the installation of monolithic structures for pedestrian exits numbered four, five and six. Now the specialists have started the installation of metal structures, ”he said.
The frame of the pavilions will be made of metal, the facade will be faced with porcelain stoneware, and the roof will be covered with aluminum sheets.
“The glazing of the pavilions will be made of multi-layer tempered glass and triplex – glass, which is used in the production of cars,” said Andrey Bochkarev.
Subway slopes will be equipped with a gangway for the convenience of people with limited mobility, and an elevator will appear at pedestrian exit number six.
“As for the pedestrian exit number three, it is being constructed in the complex for the construction of a transfer to the existing Kaluzhskaya station of the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line. In total, Vorontsovskaya station will receive four pedestrian exits – two from the side of Profsoyuznaya Street and two from the side of Architect Vlasov Street, “added Alexander Sitnikov, head of the Vorontsovskaya station construction project.
The opening of the southern section of the BCL from the station Prospekt Vernadsky to Kakhovskaya will improve transport services for residents of five Moscow districts with a population of about 550 thousand people, reduce the traffic intensity in these areas and improve the environmental situation, relieve the central and southern sections of Sokolnicheskaya, Kaluzhsko Rizhskaya and Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya metro lines, as well as to ensure the integration of the Troitskaya line under construction into the Moscow metro network.
BCL will become the longest metro ring line in the world. Its length will be 70 kilometers. 31 stations will open on the line. From them it will be possible to make transfers to radial metro lines, the Moscow Central Ring, Moscow Central Diameters and radial railway lines.
Now there are 10 BCL stations 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.
