Sergei Sobyanin on the Moscow Metro’s Troitskaya Line construction

Construction and renovation

Construction of the Slavyansky Mir metro station in the Troitskaya Line is making fast progress. A third of the project has already been completed. Sergei Sobyanin visited the project. 

“Troitskaya Line, Moscow Metro’s longest radial line (about 40 km), is already taking shape: to date, the boring of two tunnels between two stations has been completed and works continue in three more tunnels. I think these works will be finished next year. Construction is going on along the entire line from Ulitsa Novatorov to Kommunarka stations. It will be the first part of the long line stretching from Moscow Central Circle to Kommunarka station and on to the city of Troitsk,” said the Mayor.

Slavyansky Mir station

The constructed Slavyansky Mir station is situated beside a shopping mall of the same name, at the 42nd kilometre of the MKAD’s outer side. Its commissioning will improve transport accessibility for the township of Mosrentgen, home to some 20,000 people, as well as for a largest commercial district in Moscow, which includes, in addition to the Slavyansky Mir shopping mall, a shopping and recreation centre and several superstores on the other side of Kaluzhskoye Motorway. Switching a portion of shopping centers’ visitor flows to the metro will considerably lighten transport load on the adjacent MKAD, Kaluzhskoye Motorway and Profsoyuznaya Street sections.

The colonnaded three-span subsurface station with one island platform will have one entrance lobby on the surface. The station will be decorated in an orange-grey colour spectrum with creatures from fables depicted on the tunnel walls. The ceiling will feature oblique strips with built-in lamps.

The concourse will also look unusual — as if made of huge boulders covered with drawings relating to the same subject.

Station builders are finishing the installation of the enclosing structures and continue earth and concrete works. The station is 32 percent complete.

Troitskaya Line

Troitskaya Line (tentative name — Kommunarskaya Line) will run from Krymskaya station of the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) to the city of Troitsk and will provide the population of new Moscow districts with fast railway connection. The South-Western Administrative Area will also get another transport line.

“The first stage is important by itself, because it reduces the load on Kaluzhskoye Motorway and MKAD there and provides convenient transport accessibility for the people living in several Moscow residential areas,” noted Sergei Sobyanin.

All in all, over a million people live in the Troitskaya Line zone of influence and several hundred thousand more work and study there.

The new metro line will lighten the load on the central and southern sections of the Sokolnicheskaya and Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya lines and allow traffic to be reduced in adjacent streets, which will, in its turn, improve the environment there.

The Troitskaya Line will have 16 stations and its length will be about 40 kilometres. Sevastopolsky Prospekt of the Moscow Central Circle will become its interchange station. Passengers will be able to interchange from Ulitsa Novatorov station to the Big Circle Line (BCL). A major transit hub with the Sokolnicheskaya Line will be built at Kommunarka station.

TheTroitskaya Line’s  construction began in 2018. Preconstruction activities have been launched at the Sevastopolsky Prospekt – Ulitsa Novatorov head section. Construction is going on between Ulitsa Novatorov and Bachyurinskaya stations and between Bachyurinskaya to Kommunarka stations; the total length of these two lines is 16 kilometres. The section has seven stations: Ulitsa Novatorov, Peoples' Friendship University, Ulitsa Generala Tyuleneva, Slavyansky Mir, Mamyri, Bachyurinskaya and Kommunarka.

Construction documents for the section between Kommunarka and Troitsk are being drafted. The future line will be bored using traditional Moscow method: two one-track tunnels six metres in diameter.

The main line tunnels from Ulitsa Generala Tyuleneva station to Slavyansky Mir were completed this past July. The Galina-type tunnel-boring machine finished boring the right main line tunnel from Mamyri station to Slavyansky Mir in October. And the Maria-type tunnel-boring machine finalised construction of the left main line tunnel between these stations several days ago – on 26 November.

In 2019–2020 Peoples' Friendship University station was the starting point for four tunnel-boring machines. The Yelena-type (started on 30 January 2020, bored 87 percent) and Svetlana-type (started on 25 November 2019, bored 97 percent) tunnel boring machines are moving toward Ulitsa Novatorov station, Olga-type (started on 25 December 2019, bored 77 percent) and Victoria-type (started on 5 May 2020, bored 60 percent) – are moving toward Ulitsa Generala Tyuleneva station.

Yevgenia- and Daria-type tunnel boring machines are to begin boring in late 2020 – early 2021; they will dig out the main line tunnels between Mamyri and Bachyurinskaya stations.

“Currently, six tunnel boring machines are in operation; four will stop working in February, two will start functioning in December and are to finish the work at Kommunarka by the end of the year. This line will be completed in full, in terms of boring operations, by the end of the next year,” said Dmitry Gerasimov, Head of Construction Technologies Development Management JSC.

Troitskaya Line’s section from Ulitsa Novatorov to Kommunarka is scheduled for putting into operation in 2023–2024.
