Monolithic work is being completed, interior decoration has begun.
The construction of the Nagatinsky Zaton station on the eastern section of the Big Circle Line (BKL) of the metro is 60 percent complete. This was told by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for urban planning policy and construction Andrey Bochkarev.
“Currently, monolithic work at the station has been completed by 86 percent, earthwork — by more than 91 percent. At the same time, the development of the station pit has been completed in full. 14 percent completed the interior decoration, more than half – waterproofing, 48 percent – the construction of internal walls and partitions,” he said.
In the future, on the basis of the station “Nagatinsky Zaton” there will be a transport interchange hub (TPU) with the same name with housing, social facilities and parking lots. As part of the second phase of TPU development, it is planned to build a residential complex with a kindergarten for 150 kids and a school for 300 students.
The eastern section of the Big Circle Line, 11 kilometers long, includes four stations: Klenovy Boulevard, Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatniki and Tekstilshchiki. Today, its overall readiness is estimated at 57 percent.
“Tunneling work at the site is 98 percent complete. The ten-meter tunnel-boring complex “Lilia” is working on driving a double-track tunnel in the section from “Nagatinsky Zaton” to “Klenovy Boulevard”, and the six-meter shield “Elena” is laying a single-track tunnel between the transition chamber near the station “Klenovy Bulvar” and the chamber of metal structures near the station Kashirskaya,” said Yury Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC.
The opening of stations in the eastern section will improve the transport accessibility of a number of districts in the south-east of Moscow.
The BCL will become the longest circular metro line in the world, overtaking the current champion, the second circular metro line of the Beijing metro (57 kilometers). Its length will be 70 kilometers, it will house 31 stations and three electric depots. Passengers will have access to transfers to 20 stations on 11 other metro lines, four transfers to the stations of the Moscow Central Ring, six transfers to MCD-1 Belorussko-Savelovsky (Odintsovo – Lobnya) and MCD-2 Kursko-Rizhsky (Nakhabino – Podolsk) , 11 transfers to other railway lines.
