Citizens will be offered two options: Kalanchevskaya and Square of Three Stations.
In the project “Active Citizen” voting starteddedicated to the name of the new station of the Moscow Central Diameters (MCD). It will be located on the square of three stations.
Now, near the square where the Leningradsky, Kazansky and Yaroslavsky railway stations are located, one of the largest transport hubs is being built. In place of the obsolete platform, a new transport and interchange hub will appear, which will accept trains MCD-2 “Kursko-Rizhsky” and MCD-4 “Kievsko-Gorkovsky”.
Project participants can choose a name for the new station from the proposed ones – Kalanchevskaya and Ploschad Three Stations – or entrust this decision to specialists. The Kalanchevskaya variant corresponds to the name of the old platform. And the “Square of Three Stations” was offered by residents of the Krasnoselsky district and students of the Russian University of Transport.
“This is not the first station, the name of which is determined by the Muscovites themselves. Recently, the Active Citizen project chose a name for the new station of the Big Circle Metro Line. As practice has shown, such voting arouses increased interest among the townspeople, ”said Alexander Pischelko, head of the State Institution“ New Management Technologies ”.
One platform has already been built at the MCD station, the name for which will be chosen by Muscovites. It accepts MCD-2 trains, and by 2024 a platform for MCD-4 trains will be ready. The passenger terminal will be located at ground level under the railroad tracks. The area of the hub will be 4.5 thousand square meters. By 2024, more than 32 thousand people will use the station every day.
“In fact, a new modern station will appear here, which will be perceived by passengers as a new object of urban passenger infrastructure, as part of a transport hub, which many Muscovites call the area of three stations. The new hub will fully open to passengers in 2023. I am sure that this is a true tendency, when the residents of the city themselves decide what the new station will be called, ”said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport
The new transport hub will meet all modern conditions to which the passengers of the Moscow Central Diameters are accustomed. Both platforms will be equipped with awnings, passenger terminals will be equipped with elevators, escalators, LED lighting; toilet rooms and ticket offices will appear. The station will be decorated in the style of the square of three stations; the specialists have already selected the appropriate color scheme and architectural solutions.
