Since 2011, the Moscow metro network has grown by 1.5 times.

Over the past 10 years, 100 metro stations and the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) have appeared in the capital. In the coming years, it is planned to open another 50-60 stations. He spoke about these and other achievements and plans of the capital’s transport complex Sergei Sobyanin on your page on the social network “In contact with”


Also, over 10 years, 12 new railway stations were opened in the city and 39 existing railway stations were reconstructed. In September 2016, a movement was launched on MCC, and in November 2019 – two Moscow central diameters: MCD-1 Odintsovo – Lobnya (52 kilometers, 28 stations) and MCD-2 Nakhabino – Podolsk (80 kilometers, 38 stations).

In 2021, 12 stations of the Big Circle Line (BCL) were opened: Narodnoe Opolchenie, Mnevniki, Terekhovo, Kuntsevskaya, Davydkovo, Aminevskaya, Michurinsky Prospect, Vernadsky Prospekt, Novatorskaya, Vorontsovskaya, Zyuzino and Kakhovskaya. Of them 10 stations started working at the same time – in December last year. The length of the new section is 25 kilometers.

The tunneling of all BKL tunnels is expected to be completed by the end of this year. The construction readiness of the line is 90 percent. It is planned to completely close the ring in 2023.

Last year in the metro appeared 337 modern cars “Moscow-2020” – this is 44 full trains. They run along the BCL, Koltsevaya and Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya lines. The new trains have wide doors and inter-car passages, there is an air disinfection system, the number of USB ports has been increased five times, and the noise level has decreased by 15 percent.

In the next two years, it is planned to purchase another 660 cars “Moscow-2020”. This will allow the capital’s metro train fleet to become the youngest in Europe and the United States.
