The excavation for the future Fiztekh metro station of the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya line has been fully completed, according to Mr. Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.

The Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“The excavation of one of the longest excavation pits of the Fiztekh station with almost 700-metre-long headshunts on the light green line section under construction was carried out in several stages. Today, this work is fully completed”, noted Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.

The head of the Moscow Complex of Urban Planning Policy and Construction told that the construction workers primarily prepared the dismantling chamber for the simultaneous run out of the two tunnel boring machines and then took the ground out in the platform and concourse area before proceeding to the headshunts behind the station.

Mr. Andrey Bochkarev specified that since the future Fiztekh station was the terminus of the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya line, the headshunts for the turn-around and stabling of rolling stock would be necessary behind it. A traction step-down substation and a ventilation unit, located above the exit chamber, are being constructed in a unified excavation pit.

The length of the northern extension section of the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya line under construction is about six kilometres and includes three stations: Yakhromskaya, Lianozovo and Fiztekh. The new stations will improve transport accessibility for residents of Dmitrovsky, Vostochnoye Degunino, Beskudnikovsky, Lianozovo districts, as well as the settlement of Severny.
