Nizhegorodskaya Transport Hub
The largest transport hub in Eastern Europe consolidates two metro lines, Moscow Central Circle (MCC) and suburban railway line, which in future will become new Moscow Central Diameters line (MCD-4). The underground concourse provides comfortable transportation for 600 thousand of passenger per day.
Within the implementation of the project on the integration of different types of transport, The Group of Companies Mosproekt-3 engineers had to improve normative and technology base.
Today Nizhegorodskaya Transport Hub is the only transport hub in Russia, which unites the maximum traffic flows consolidated into one. When designing the facility, we faced the challenge of integrating several transport systems, all of which has own technological characteristics and operating regulations. Transport hub construction was carried out in stages: top-down method allowed to start transport hub construction before the metro line construction was complete. MCC station was opened first, then Karacharovo platform was removed and finally there was launched train traffic on the Nekrasovskaya Line, while continuing the Big Circle line construction. Train traffic didn’t stop in all that time.
