Its length was about one kilometer.

On the eastern section of the Big Circle Line (BCL), another excavation has been completed. The left running tunnel between the transition chamber at the Klenovy Boulevard station under construction and the reconstructed Kashirskaya station is ready. This was stated by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for Urban Development Policy Andrey Bochkarev.

The length of the tunnel was about one kilometer, tunneling work was carried out by the shield “Elena” with a diameter of six meters.

“The excavation was carried out at a high rate: about 500 meters of underground space were covered in a month,” said Andrey Bochkarev.

Yuri Kravtsov, general director of the contractor company Mosinzhproekt, said that the Elena shield worked at a depth of seven to 25 meters.

“The work was carried out in the technical zone of the Zamoskvoretskaya line, under Andropov Avenue and the territory of the city park“ Sadovniki ”. By the way, the start of “Elena” was 70th on the big metro ring, ”noted Yuri Kravtsov.

He also added that the tunneling of the adjacent right-hand tunnel between the Klenovy Boulevard and Kashirskaya stations was completed two months ago with the help of the Olga shield.

The eastern section of the BCL will house the Klenovy Boulevard, Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatniki and Tekstilshchiki stations. Their opening will improve transport accessibility for residents of several districts in the south-east of Moscow.

The construction of the Big Circle Line is the largest metro construction project. The new ring will be 70 kilometers long and will have 31 stations and three depots. 22 new stations are already open to passengers.
