Nine stations of the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro will be open for passengers in 2021.
That’s been reported by the Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction. Specialists of the Mospromproekt, which is part of The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3, are involved in this key project of the Moscow Metro development.
“We will open four stations of the south-western section – Davydkovo, Aminievskaya, Michurinsky Prospekt and Prospekt Vernadskogo, as well as three stations of the southern section – Ulitsa Novatorov, Kaluzhskaya and Zyuzino in next year. In addition, it will be open two stations of the western section – Terekhovo and Kuntsevskaya,” Andrey Bochkarev said.

“Complicated hydrogeological conditions forced our engineers to use the ‘wall in the ground’ method for mounting an enclosing structure for construction pit. Where conditions were better, it was possible to use the plank tightening pipes method. It has helped to optimize the costs and construction duration so that new convenient routes could be provided to passengers as quickly as possible,” Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO, said.
The Big Circle Line project is the largest in the history of Moscow metro building. It will include thirty-one stations; the total length of the Line will be approximately seventy km. Its stations will have transfer to the radial lines of the metro, the Moscow Central Circle, the Moscow Central Diameters and radial lines of the railway.
