Specialists will not need to carry out earthworks, block traffic and turn off communications.

As part of the modernization of the Mozhaisky collector, specialists at CJSC began restoring the waterproofing of the main structures, ventilation shafts and emergency exits.

Power cables, communication cables, as well as heating and water supply pipes located in the collector provide resources for the Fili-Davydkovo and Mozhaysky districts with a population of more than 255 thousand people. Modernization will allow not only to extend the life of the collector, but also to increase the reliability of the operation of the laid communications.

“Modernization of the collector is carried out in accordance with the plan and will be completed on time. In the first sections, where restoration of load-bearing structures is not required, specialists have already completed the preparatory work and have begun to restore the waterproofing. During the modernization of the collector, the bearing capacity of 230 reinforced concrete floor slabs will be restored, more than 33.6 kilometers of floor joints, walls, junctions of hatches, emergency exits and ventilation shafts will be waterproofed,” said Pavel Kiselev, First Deputy General Director, Chief Engineer of JSC Moskollektor .

Specialists will also modernize the drainage system – they will replace the walkway, repair water discharge pipelines and drainage wells.

Pavel Kiselev stressed that it is important not to disturb the usual way of life of the residents during the work.

“The construction of the collector makes it possible to fully modernize the underground structure without excavation, without disturbing the appearance of the city. For the comfort of local residents, all work will be carried out without disconnecting communications and only during the daytime, using hand-held power tools and low-noise equipment,” said the First Deputy Director of JSC Moskollektor.

The Mozhaisky collector was built in 1968. The total length of the underground structure is more than 5.9 kilometers. It runs along busy streets and highways with almost round-the-clock heavy traffic. Thanks to unique technologies, modernization work will be carried out without opening and blocking traffic along the main highways, as well as without cutting off hot and cold water supply, electricity, heating and other energy resources.

As previously reported by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Communal Services and Improvement Petr Biryukov, this year it is planned to repair, reconstruct and modernize 15 communication collectors with a total length of over 31 kilometers.
