The project includes planting 500 trees

“The adjacent territory of the Aminyevskaya transport hub will be paved with black and white granite slabs from the national deposits for ease of movement for passengers”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is one of the operators of the hub network development programme.

“Gabbro black granite from a deposit in Karelia and white granite from the Tashmurun deposit in the Republic of Bashkortostan, one of the largest deposits of natural stone in the world, are used for the landscaping. The slabs will be laid in staggered rows”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

The Deputy Mayor recalled that the Aminyevskaya hub would be located at the intersection of the Aminyevskoye and Ochakovskoye Highways. The first stage of the hub creation was the launch of the same name metro station, which was opened in December 2021 as part of the 10-station section of the Big Circle Line (BCL).

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, specified that the area near the exits of the Aminyevskaya BCL station, on the basis of which the hub is being established, will be paved with large-sized slabs measuring 60 cm by 30 cm, and the pavements along the streets laid with slabs measuring 20 cm by 10 cm.

“The area of granite paving will be more than 18 thousand square metres. The total landscaping area of the transport interchange hub is 93 thousand square metres. It provides for planting 505 trees, almost 8 thousand shrubs and about 2,5 thousand square metres of flower beds. There will be 86 small architectural forms installed, including benches and arbours”, added Yuri Kravtsov.

According to the head of the Engineering Holding, a pedestrian underpass on a clean shoe basis was commissioned along with the Aminyevskaya station to the stop of the Kiyevsky suburban railway line. In future, the platform will be used for trains on the MCD 4 route.

“As part of the hub project, eight stops of the ground urban passenger transport will also be installed, and the territory of the transport hub will become a comfortable public open space for Muscovites”, said Yuri Kravtsov.

The pedestrian underpasses under construction will connect the metro station, the railway platform of the future MCD 4 and stops of the ground public transport to the nearby residential area.

Over the past ten years, more than 125 km of metro lines, 61 stations and 11 electric depots were built and commissioned in Moscow with the participation of Mosinzhproekt.
