Six new metro stations in Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas

February 8

Six new metro stations are going to be built in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas over the next few years or so. Construction work is now underway to complete the metro’s Troitskaya Line with the Slavyansky Mir, Mamyri, Bachyurinskaya, and Kommunarka stations.

“We are also building the Pykhtino station on the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line and preparing to launch the construction of the Novomoskovskaya station on the Sokolnicheskaya Line,” enthused Rafik Zagrutdinov, Head of Moscow’s Department of Construction.

The Troitskaya Line will link the MCC’s Krymskaya station with Troitsk. It will pass through districts with a population of over one million, plus several hundred thousand workers and students from other areas.

The new metro line will reduce congestion on the central and southern sections of the Sokolnicheskaya and Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya lines. It will virtually duplicate their southern sections, and the Tyoply Stan station will stop serving as the main transit link/hub for people living in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas.

The 40-kilometre-long Troitskaya Line will have 16 stations. The Sevastopolsky Prospekt station will allow passengers to change for the MCC. It will be possible to connect with the Big Circle Line from the Ulitsa Novatorov station, and people will be able to change for the Sokolnicheskaya Line using a large transit link/hub, due to be developed at the Kommunarka station. 

Construction of the metro’s Troitskaya Line was launched in 2018. Groundbreaking operations are underway in the main sector with the Sevastopolsky Prospekt and Ulitsa Novatorov stations. Workers are building sections between the Ulitsa Novatorov and Bachyurinskaya stations, as well as between the Bachyurinskaya and Kommunarka stations, with a total length of 16 kilometres. This part, due to open in 2023-2024, has seven stations, namely Ulitsa Novatorov, Universitet Druzhby Narodov, Ulitsa Generala Tyuleneva, Slavyansky Mir, Mamyri, Bachyurinskaya and Kommunarka. Urban development plans as regards the construction of the line’s Kommunarka section to Troitsk are also in the making.

The Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line’s Pykhtino station will open in the Vnukovskoye Rural District and on the southern side of Borovskoye Motorway, not so very far away from the nearby Pilota Gritsevtsa Street.

Due to the rugged terrain, the 163-metre platform will have to have a solid retaining wall, decorated with a timeline and drawings of Soviet-era aircraft, from the Tupolev ANT-3 propeller plane to the Tupolev Tu-160 supersonic bomber. The opposite wall will feature panoramic glass panes. Lamps shaped like aircraft turbines will adorn the ceiling, and a scale model of the Tupolev Tu-144 supersonic transport will hang above the escalator. The floor and the walls will be faced with light-grey granite, and aluminium panels will cover the walls.

At the moment workers are digging up the utility mains from the construction site as well as conducting excavation work and installing monolithic structures. The Pykhtino station is to open in September 2023.

Eight stations are currently located in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative areas. In 2016, the Rumyantsevo and Salaryevo stations opened on the Sokolnicheskaya Line. In 2018 the Rasskazovka and Govorovo stations opened on the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line. Passengers started using the Sokoilnicheskaya Line’s Filatov Lug, Prokshino, Olkhovaya and Kommunarka stations in 2019.
