THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE UNDERGROUND PARKING AT THE MICHURINSKY PROSPEKT STATION OF THE BIG CIRCLE LINE HAS BEEN LAUNCHED
The construction of the underground parking at the Michurinsky Prospekt Station of the Big Circle Line has been launched. The project of the Big Circle line south-western section was designed by Mospromproekt JSC, which is a member of The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3.
“Today, architectural finishing and utilities installation are carried out on four stations of the Big Circle Line south-western section. At the Michurinsky Prospekt Station the construction of the underground parking with 78 parking spaces also has begun: the parking will be constructed directly over the future station”, – said Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
The main challenge of the project are dense urban development and lack of space. “The Michurinsky Prospekt Station is located in the intersection of Udaltsova Street and Michurinsky Avenue, area with a high traffic. With a same named station of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line and other transport infrastructure they will create a united transport hub”, – noted Andrey Bochkarev.
According to Andrey Bochkarev, in order to minimize the construction footprint, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 engineers reconsidered station dimensions and designed a seven-story station. One of the floors will be used as a parking.
As it was mentioned by Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO, the construction of both future parking and station complex is conducted simultaneously, the parking is linked with a same named station hall of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line and the future transport hub. To reduce a load on station’s constructions, for a parking construction there was used a light-weight concrete.
The south-western section of the Big Circle Line contains of four stations: Prospekt Vernandskogo, Michurinsky Prospekt, Aminevskaya and Davydkovo Station. The total planning length of the section is approximately 7,7 km.
