Currently, four stations are under construction on the eastern section of the BCL: Klenovy Boulevard, Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatnikov and Tekstilshchikov.
More than half of the tunnel between the Pechatniki and Nagatinsky Zaton stations of the Big Circle Line has been passed. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for Urban Development Policy and Construction Andrey Bochkarev…
“The ten-meter Victoria tunnel boring complex has passed 904 meters of a double-track tunnel between the stations under construction on the eastern section of the Pechatniki BCL and Nagatinsky Zaton, which is more than half of the total length of the tunnel,” he said.
At present, on the eastern section of the BCL, a double-track tunnel is being drilled between the Nagatinsky Zaton and Klenovy Boulevard stations.
“The Lilia tunnel boring complex has overcome more than 70 percent of the tunnel under construction in this section. In addition, a single-track tunnel is being driven from the Kashirskaya station towards Klenovy Boulevard, “added Andrei Bochkarev.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, noted that now the “Victoria” TPMK has stopped at a specially equipped site to replace the cutting tool and then will go under the Moskva River, which is about 500 meters wide.
“The Victoria complex also passed through a dense urban development zone in the Pechatniki area, part of the tunnel was passed directly under the Pechatniki station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line, and then under the sewer of the Nishchenko river. Mixed soils (from sands to limestones) prevail along the route, and they are heavily watered, ”said Yuri Kravtsov.
The eastern section of the BCL is almost half finished.
“The readiness of the Tekstilshchiki and Klenovy Boulevard stations is on average 50 percent – architectural and finishing works and works on the installation of engineering systems are underway. The Pechatniki and Nagatinsky Zaton stations are one third ready – work continues on the construction of the main structures of the stations, ”said Yuri Kravtsov.
Currently, four stations are under construction on the eastern section of the BCL: Klenovy Boulevard, Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatnikov and Tekstilshchikov, which will improve the transport accessibility of the adjacent areas.
