MICHURINSKY PROSPEKT STATION OF THE BIG CIRCLE LINE MONOLITHIC STRUCTURES ARE MORE THAN 80% COMPLETE
Michurinsky Prospekt Station of the Big Circle Line monolithic structures are 83% complete – constructors have already poured 25 thousand cubic meters of concrete and started finishing of a passenger area and service rooms. Excavation works for the construction of a pedestrian crossing across Udaltsova Street are also under way. The project of the Big Circle Line southern section was designed by Mospromproekt JSC, which is a member of The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3.
“Dense urban development and lack of space caused some difficulties during the construction period – the station is located at the intersection of Udaltsova Street and Michurinsky Avenue with a heavy traffic and this area is also marked by a big number of utilities. While designing the station complex, engineers had to take into consideration plans on incentive parking area construction within future transport hub area”, – said Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
To decrease a size of construction footprint, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 reconsidered station dimensions and designed a seven-story station, one of the floors will be used as a parking. “To minimize load on the station structures, we used light-weight concrete for a parking area construction”, – highlighted Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO.
She also added that due to the lack of space, the construction of a future parking and station complex is conducted simultaneously. According to the project, both of them are linked with a same named station hall of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line and the future transport hub.
Michurinsky Prospekt Station of the Big Circle Line will provide a transfer to the same named station of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line. The new station will also reduce traffic load on main transfer stations of Moscow Metro and southern sections of Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya and Sokolnicheskaya Line. Moreover, Michurinsky Prospekt Station will decrease road traffic on Aminievskoye Highway, Udaltsova Street, Michurinsky and Vernandskogo Avenue.
