In total, more than 40 buildings and structures for servicing trains will be erected on the territory of the depot.

In the west of the capital, the main stage of construction of the Aminevskoye depot has begun. It will serve the Big Ring Line (BCL) of the metro, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for Urban Development Policy and Construction Andrey Bochkarev.

“At the construction site of the future Aminevskoye depot, which will serve the BKL trains, the preparatory period has been completed – the builders have finished dismantling the existing structures, are actively excavating and have begun the main stage of work,” he said.

The depot will be located on the territory of the former industrial zone on the western side of General Dorokhova Street near its intersection with Vereiskaya Street.

“The new depot will provide the necessary train schedule and create additional capacities for overnight stays and repair of the BCL rolling stock. In total, more than 40 buildings and structures intended for servicing trains are expected to be erected here, ”added Andrei Bochkarev.

The head of the Construction Complex clarified that the tunneling of the connecting branch from the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro to the depot under construction is underway.

General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC (operator of the Moscow metro development program) Yuri Kravtsov clarified that most of the tunnel had already been passed.

“The construction of the tunnel, which will stretch from the transition chamber between the stations“ Aminevskaya ”and“ Davydkovo ”, is being built by the shield of“ Esmin ”, almost 600 meters out of about 800 planned have already been covered,” he added.

In addition, two more tracks from the Davydkovo station will lead to the Aminevskoye depot. They will pass, among other things, along the overpass.

“At present, the installation of the enclosing structures made of bored piles continues here, they are also at a high level of readiness,” added Yuri Kravtsov. He stressed that the large subway ring will be served by three depots: the existing Zamoskvoretskoye in the south and the new ones – Nizhegorodskoye in the east and Aminevskoye in the west of the BCL.

The Big Circle Line is the world’s largest metro construction project. The BCL will be 70 kilometers long, including the existing Kakhovskaya – Kashirskaya section. The BCL will house 31 stations and three depots. It could become the longest subway ring line in the world, overtaking the current leader – the second ring line of the Beijing subway.
