All stations of the light-green line section under construction, are already connected to one other
“Today, for the first time in the history of Moscow Metro engineering, three tunnel boring machines (TBM) completed tunnelling at the new section from Seligerskaya to Fiztekh of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line in parallel”, said Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow.
“Tunnelling is fully complete at the three stations. The builders will continue arranging excavation pits and erecting stations. I think that the entire section will be commissioned by the end of 2023,” said Sergei Sobyanin.
The work is complete by 3 TBMs in parallel:
• “Klavdia” (Lovat 242, Canada) completed the right running tunnel between the Yakhromskaya station and the Lianozovo station, the tunnel is 1.8 km long;
• “Tatiana” (Herrenknecht S-770, Germany) and “Irina” (Herrenknecht S-771, Germany) completed the running tunnels between the Lianozovo station and the Fiztekh stations, each tunnel is 2.3 km long.
The 6.9 kilometer section of the Lublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line runs along the Dmitrovskoye highway. It will include Lianozovo, Yakhromskaya, and Fiztekh stations to be opened.
The construction of the northern section of the light green line from the Seligerskaya station started in 2019. All work is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023. The section is 25% complete.
Extending the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line of the Moscow metro to the Fiztekh station will improve transport services for about 500,000 people. Residents and workers in the Beskudnikovsky District, Eastern Degunino District, Dmitrovsky District, Lianozovo District, Severny District and the city of Dolgoprudny in the Moscow region will be able to reduce commuting time by around 20 minutes.
Passengers will be able to choose between the metro, MCD or surface public transport. The opening of the new stations will reduce stress on the final stations of the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya Line and partly Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Lines of the Moscow Metro. The road traffic will be reduced on the Dmitrovskoye highway and adjacent streets.
Recall that the Butyrskaya, Fonvizinskaya and Petrovsko-Razumovskaya stations were commissioned on the Lublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line in 2016. In 2018, the Okruzhnaya, Verkhniye Likhobory and Seligerskaya stations were opened, and the Likhobory electric depot was commissioned.
