CONSTRUCTION OF UNDERGROUND PARKING AT “MICHURINSKY PROSPEKT” STATION OF BIG CIRCLE LINE HAS BEEN LAUNCHED
The construction of the underground parking at “Michurinsky Prospekt” station of the Big Circle Line has been launched. The project of the Big Circle line south-western section was developed by Mospromproekt, the company which forms a part of The Group of companies Mosproekt-3.
“Today, architectural finishing works and utilities installation are being carried out in four stations of the Big Circle Line south-western section. In “Michurinsky Prospekt” station the construction of the underground parking with 78 parking spaces has also begun: the parking will be constructed immediately over the future station”, – said Andrey Bochkarev, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
The The main challenge of the project is the dense urban development and lack of space. ““Michurinsky Prospekt” station is located at the intersection of Ulitsa Udaltsova and Michurinsky Prospekt, the area with a high level of traffic. With the so named station of Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line and other transport infrastructure they are going to create a transport hub”, – noted Andrey Bochkarev.
According to Andrey Bochkarev, in order to minimize the construction footprint, The Group of companies Mosproekt-3 engineers reconsidered the station dimensions and designed and engineered a seven-story station. One of the floors is going to be used as the parking area.
According to Anna Merkulova, CEO of The Group of companies Mosproekt-3, the construction of both the future parking and the station complex is conducted simultaneously, the parking is connected to the so named station hall of Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line and the future transport hub. To reduce the load on the station’s structures, the light-weight concrete is going to be used when constructing the parking.
As a reminder, the south-western section of the Big Circle Line consists of four stations: “Prospekt Vernandskogo”, “Michurinsky Prospekt”, “Aminevskaya” and “Davydkovo” stations. The total length of the section is going to take approximately 7,7 km.
