TEMPORARILY CLOSED STATIONS OF KALUZHSKO-RIZHSKAYA LINE CAN BE OPENED AHEAD OF SCHEDULE

The stations of the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line, which were temporarily closed during the Big Circle Line construction, can be opened ahead of schedule. The project of the Big Circle Line southern section was designed by Mospromroekt JSC, which is a member of The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3.

“Temporary restrictions on the section between Novye Cheremushki and Belyaevo Station are caused by tunneling in the area of the operating Kaluzhskaya Station. In order to provide safe transportation, we had to close those stations for passengers from 20 of March to 2 of April. Nevertheless, we will put the maximum effort to complete all works ahead of schedule”, – said Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.

As Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO, has previously highlighted, the Vorontsovskaya Station hall, which is currently under construction, is at the output area of a tunnel boring machine. In order to speed up the construction, there were designed some temporary apertures to disassembly tunneling shield.
