Sergei Sobyanin opened four stations of Nekrasovskaya metro line

June 5

The first section of Nekrasovskaya line was opened in Moscow. It includes four stations: Kosino, Ulitsa Dmitriyevskogo, Lukhmanovskaya and Nekrasovka. Section length is almost 7 km long.

"Our dream comes true, Nekrasovka has a metro now. We have not completely solved the problem of the metro accessibility in this area, but today we celebrate a really significant event: we open the first four stations of the new metro line. But 'the first stations' does not mean that the other five ones need to be built from scratch, on the contrary, they have been building at full speed, and I expect that in less than a year we will open the whole branch," said Sergei Sobyanin.

High-speed transport for hundreds of thousands citizens

Nekrasovskaya Line will serve as an alternate route of the southeaster radius of Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya branch being overloaded now. With the opening of new metro stations, the load on the nearby roads, including Lermontovsky and Ryazansky Prospekts, Nosovikhinskoye Motorway and others is to be also reduced.

"Opening of the whole branch will provide a great advantage to 800,000 people living in many areas of Moscow and Moscow region, it will significantly unload the branch that Nekrasovskaya Line crosses, that is Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line being presently extremely overloaded. So, this is a comprehensive solution to the issue of metro accessibility for a large number of people living in the eastern and southeaster areas of Moscow. And it will naturally reduce the road traffic. Life will become quite different for Nekrasovka and Kosino-Ukhtomsky districts' residents, as it is much easier now to get to the centre of Moscow," Moscow Mayor said.

Nekrasovskaya Line is expected to be 18.6 km long with nine stations included. It will run from Aviamotornaya station at Entuziastov Motorway to Nizhegorodskaya Ulitsa station at the beginning of Ryazansky Prospekt and further along Ryazansky Prospekt beyond Moscow Ring Road (MKAD) towards Zhulebino, Kosino-Ukhtomsky and Nekrasovka districts.

The new line has been designed by experts from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tatarstan and Belarus. Construction started in 2012, progressing stage by stage.

The length of the first section Kosino — Nekrasovka is 6.9 km. Two Moscow districts, Nekrasovka and Kosino-Ukhtomsky, have metro now. Vykhino-Zhulebino district has acquired one more station. It is the first time in the history of the Moscow metro construction that the opening of a new line starts with the site located beyond the Moscow Ring Road. It was possible due to the arrangement of the interchange from Kosino station to Lermontovsy Prospekt station of Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line.

Sergei Sobyanin added that landscaping and improvement works have started around new stations to be completed until the end of this year. Besides, an electric engine station has been opened to service the new line.

"Today we have also opened an electric engine station, which is to employ about 500 people. The facility is to be surrounded by large technopark with modern jobs available. Electrical cables and wires will be put underground, and step by step this area is to become not just a residential Moscow district, but an area of comprehensive development with new jobs available, sports centres, shopping and social facilities: schools, hospitals, kindergartens, which are being constructed in this area," said Sergei Sobyanin.

He expressed his gratitude to the metro workers who had taken part in the new line launch and who are to ensure its proper operation. Moscow Mayor noted that the construction was rather complicated due to water-saturated soils and other obstacles.

The honorary title 'Honorary Transport and Communications Worker of the City of Moscow' for the contribution to construction and commissioning of Nekrasovskaya Line Moscow metro section was awarded to the Moscow metro electric train's driver Sergei Kozlov, first Deputy Head of the Moscow Metro Power Supply Service Anton Kryuchkov, the Moscow metro motor depot engineer Georgy Shibaev.  Several  Moscow metro employees received commendation from Moscow Mayor.

Three lakes

Kosino station is located between Lermontovsky Prospekt and the Kazan direction tracks of the Moscow railway. This is a sub-surface station, with an off-boarding platform and two entrance halls with exits to Kosino platform and Lermontovsky Prospekt.

Kosino station is equipped with elevators for passengers with limited mobility (as well as other stations of the new line)

The interior reminds of the main attractions of Kosino-Ukhtomsky district: Beloye (White), Chernoye (Black) and Svyatoye (Saint) lakes. Glossy suspended ceiling made of triangular perforated elements looks like flickering water.

The floor is made of granite with platform columns lined with aluminum panels. Walls of the entrance halls and ticket office halls are clad in white and cream spotted Sayan marble.

There are sidewalks and lawn laid near the station leading to public transport stops on Lermontovsky Prospekt and overhead pedestrian crossing across Kazan direction tracks of the Moscow railway.

One of the major Moscow Transport Interchange Hubs will be built as part of Kosino and Lermontovsky Prospekt stations and Kosino's platform. It will comprise an underground floor with an interchange hub between metro and railway stations, the final stop of surface transport and a commuter parking lot, multifunctional complexes with parking lots and a fitness centre.

Moon Glade

Ulitsa Dmitriyevskogo station is located between Saltykovskaya and Tatyana Makarova streets. It is a columned double-transit sub-surface station with an off-boarding platform. There will be two entrance halls with the only one to start working first.

The main station’s image is a moon glade with natural shades of gray, beige and gray-and-brown prevailing.

The floor is decorated with yellow and dark grey granite ornaments. The emerald wall is a station's highlight. Granite, aluminium, metal and ceramic panels decorate the interior.

The ground around the station is laid out with granite, lawns and flower beds with trees and shrubs planted. Transport Interchange Hub is to be arranged here, with a waiting room and commuter parking lots providing a connection between the metro, surface public and private transport.

Water Surface

Lukhmanovskaya station is located at the intersection of a future Moscow — Nizhny Novgorod — Kazan highway and Lukhmanovskaya Street.

Its exits lead to a residential  development of Kozhukhovo district, Lyubertsy, Moscow Region, and Transport Interchange Hub being under development. Station's ceiling is made of anodised aluminium panels that will reflect passengers as a water surface. The floor is made of dark green granite, platform and entrance halls' walls are lined with orange-coloured ceramic and metal panels.

There is a pedestrian crossing across Lukhmanovskaya Street, with parking lots, public transport stops, terminus and sidewalks near the metro exits arranged, 4,000 shrubs planted, and flower beds and lawns laid out.

Transport Interchange Hub as part of Lukhmanovskaya station will include a bus terminal, platforms to pick up and drop off passengers, a parking lot, a hotel and shopping and entertainment centre.

Night Sky

Terminal station Nekrasovka is located between Zashchitnikov Moskvy Prospekt and Rozhdestvenskaya Street. It has exits to residential and public buildings, public transport stops, Zashchitnikov Moskvy Prospekt, Pokrovskaya and Rozhdestvenskaya streets.

Platform columns are clad in pearl grey and white metal and ceramic panels (on the order of moonstone). Lamps built into the walls and ceiling remind of a night sky. The floor is decorated with polyhedra ornament. Special corrugated strips are provided for people with limited mobility.

There are three pedestrian crossings and terminus near the station, with  trees and shrubs planted, flower beds and lawns laid out, and the ground laid with granite.

Transport Interchange Hub to be arranged as part of Nekrasovka station, will become the major public space of the district, with a unique Fitness Centre, an Ice Palace, a swimming pool, a gym and a shopping and entertainment centre. A Protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church is to be built in the area as well, with a large park surrounding the TIH.

Nekrasovskaya Line: to be continued

Another 11.7 km long  Aviamotornaya — Kosino section of Nekrasovskaya Line with five stations is in its final stage of construction now.

This section is remarkable for its laying of a part of the tunnels from Kosino to Nizhegorodskaya stations conducted with a 10m diameter Liliya tunnel shield, with the assistance of Viktoriya shield that was used during preparation for Olympics in Sochi. Trains will run in one tunnel in both directions.

Another feature of Nekrasovskaya Line development is the use of top-down technology, a cutting-edge metro construction technology used in Nizhegorodskaya station's construction, when the underground part is erected from top to bottom of the ground level with the possibility of parallel upward construction of facilities. This allows to reduce time, costs and area of work that is relevant if a station is being constructed on a densely built-over area.

First, Rudnyovo electric engine station for Nekrasovskaya Line's rolling stock's maintenance, repair and layover was constructed with more than 500 people employed, and 1,300 employers expected.

Nekrasovskaya Line is to be directly connected to the Big Circle Line in the first years of operation, so passengers will have a possibility to travel from Nekrasovka to Lefortovo without changing.

Metro in Moscow

In 2011-2019, there were 143.5 km of metro lines and 77 new stations commissioned, three additional metro and Moscow Central Ring entrance halls and 10 electric engine stations built.
