TUNNEL DRIVING OF THE SIXTH TUNNEL OF THE TROITSKAYA METRO LINE HAS BEEN COMPLETED

The tunnel boring machine completed the right running tunnel between Troitskaya Metro Line two stations: between Universitet Druzhby Narodov and Ulitsa Novatorov stations.

Specialists of the Mospromproekt JSC, which is part of The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3, have designed a section of a new radial line from Ulitsa Novatorov Station to Communarca Station using BIM-technologies.

“Our engineers have developed the design solutions for the new line tunnels, from the construction technologies to the method of lining. Given the predominance of water-saturated groundwater, we decided to use high-precision watertight blocks to avoid further infiltration of groundwater into the structure,” said Anna Merkulova, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 CEO.

Troitskaya Metro Line is the first Russian metro project that is developed using information modelling technologies.

“For example, we have developed a three-dimensional model of the architectural and structural part, engineering systems, all the main electrical backbone networks during the designing of the Slavyanskiy Mir Station,” Dmitry Tsyupa,  Mosproekt-3 Technical Director, added.
