Traveling around the city will become faster and more convenient for millions of Muscovites and residents of the Moscow region.

The start of 2022 will be another year of intensive development ground metro, wrote Sergei Sobyanin in my blog. According to him, today additional tracks for the future MCD-3 and MCD-4 are being actively built, the construction of new and reconstruction of existing stations continues. The opening of 10 of them is just scheduled for this year.

Two large transport hubs — Pechatniki and Maryina Roshcha — will be opened at MCD-2. The first one will connect the MCD with the stations of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line and the Bolshaya Koltsevaya metro line, as well as with surface urban passenger transport. As a result, public transport will become more accessible for 360,000 residents of the south-east of Moscow. Passengers of the second diameter will have a new convenient transfer to the metro. According to forecasts, in 2025 Pechatniki station will be used by 8.4 thousand passengers per day, and in 2030 – already 11 thousand.

Two island platforms with canopies will be built here. Through the new terminal (concourse), passengers will be able to cross the South-Eastern chord, go to neighboring streets and get into the metro.

“In order to cross the railway and get to the Pechatniki metro station, today the residents of Lyublinskaya, Shkulev, Artyukhina, Malyshev streets have to make a detour of several kilometers. The problem will be solved by a new pedestrian tunnel linking the station with Lublinskaya street. Thus, there will be a convenient and safe pedestrian connection between the Pechatniki and Tekstilshchiki districts,” Sergei Sobyanin said.

From the Maryina Roshcha station, it will be possible to transfer to the MCD-2 trains and the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line, and in the future, to the MCD-4 and the Bolshaya Koltsevaya line. As part of the first stage, an island platform with awnings and an above-ground passenger lobby with exits to Vetkina Street and Maryina Roshcha 7th passage will be built. Passengers will be able to safely cross the tracks of the Riga direction of the Moscow railway. More than 60,000 residents will receive a surface metro station within walking distance from their homes.

It is predicted that 11.5 thousand passengers will use this station per day in 2025, and 14.9 thousand in 2030.

“In a few years, as part of the creation of the MCD-4, a second passenger platform will be built at Maryina Roshcha station,” Sergei Sobyanin noted.

Another new station, Minsk, will be opened as part of the promising MCD-4. The TPU, which will be created on its basis, will unite the Solntsevskaya metro line and surface urban passenger transport. From here it will be possible to go to Minskaya Street, General Dorokhov Avenue, Victory Park and the natural reserve “Valley of the Setun River”. Residents of the TiNAO and the Moscow Region will have one more convenient transfer to the metro, which will become free after the opening of the MCD-4.

According to plans, 17.3 thousand passengers per day will use this station in 2025, and 21.7 thousand in 2030.

Large-scale reconstruction will soon be completed at Ochakovo, Meshcherskaya, Peredelkino, Lesnoy Gorodok and Tolstopaltsevo stations. They will also be part of WDC-4.

In place of the obsolete commuter train stop Ochakovo, a modern convenient station will appear with an elevated passenger lobby and two island platforms with canopies. It will be used by residents of the district of the same name and employees of numerous enterprises located in local industrial zones. From there it will be possible to go to Natasha Kovshova Street and Ochakovsky Park, as well as to the passage of the Construction Plant. Crossing railroad tracks will now be convenient and safe.

According to experts, in 2025 this station will be used by 8.5 thousand passengers per day, and in 2030 the passenger traffic may increase to 11.7 thousand.

Meshcherskaya will become a convenient station with a modern passenger infrastructure. There will be two island platforms with canopies along the entire length, which will protect passengers from the sun and precipitation. The existing tunnel will be extended and reconstructed, turning it into a modern passenger terminal with ticket offices, turnstiles, escalators and elevators. From the station, passengers will be able to go to the village of Meshchersky, to Matrosova Street, to a new residential complex and the Govorovo metro station. It will become more convenient and safer to cross the railroad tracks.

Thanks to the new station, transport services for residents of the Meshchersky settlement and the Vostryakovo microdistrict will improve. According to forecasts, 2.9 thousand passengers per day will use it in 2025, and 4.2 thousand in 2030.

Two island platforms will be made at Peredelkino station and sheds will be installed. In addition, an underground lobby will be built with exits to Lukinskaya Street, 7th Lazenki Street and to Meshchersky Park and the writers’ town in Peredelkino, a cultural cluster and a popular recreation area for citizens.

Local residents will have a safe transit underpass across the railway tracks. It is planned that in 2025 this station will be used by 9.1 thousand people per day, in 2030 the passenger traffic will grow to 12 thousand people.

At the existing MCD-1, it is planned to complete the reconstruction of two stations this year.

Timiryazevskaya has become part of a large transport hub, which also includes the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya metro line station of the same name and ground public transport stops.

After the reconstruction, the station will have two new platforms with canopies along the entire length and a modern underground passenger terminal integrated with the metro lobby. The terminal will house escalators, elevators, ticket offices and restrooms.

Local residents will be able to safely cross the railroad tracks through the new tunnel. It is planned that in three years the station will be used by 23.6 thousand passengers per day, and by 2030 the passenger flow will be 30.8 thousand.

“Finally, in 2022, it is planned to complete the multi-year project of creating the Okruzhnaya transport interchange hub, which unites the MCD, the MCC and the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line. By the end of the year, the northern vestibule of the MCD-1 station will be opened with a long-awaited pedestrian crossing between the MCC and the MCD through a covered elevated gallery,” the Moscow Mayor wrote.

In addition, the construction of the second vestibule of the Okruzhnaya metro station is nearing completion. Passengers will be able to transfer between MCC, MCD and metro stations without going outside. It is planned that the daily passenger traffic in 2025 will reach 24 thousand people, and in 2030 it will grow to 35.1 thousand.

“The new stations will increase the attractiveness of the surface metro. Daily trips around the city will become faster, more convenient and, thanks to free transfers, cheaper for millions of Muscovites and residents of the Moscow region,” concluded the Moscow Mayor.
