The construction readiness of the two headshunts behind the Fiztekh station on the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya metro line is estimated to be 50%, 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.

“A full range of in-situ concreting is underway at the future Fiztekh station: the main structures of the station complex are 50% complete with more than 26 thousand cubic metres of concrete laid. The waterproofing work is also in high degree of readiness”, said Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.

According to the head of the Construction Complex, tunnel structures are more than 50% completed, and the construction of the mainline tunnels connecting the Fiztekh station with the neighboring Lianozovo station is two-thirds complete.

Mr. Yuri Kravtsov, CEO, Mosinzhproekt JSC, specified that there would be two concourses at the Fiztekh station.

“In the southern concourse, the walls are being constructed at platform level. It will give you access to Akademika Landau Boulevard. In the northern concourse, which will provide access to Dmitrovskoye highway, concreting of the base slab is underway”, specified Mr. Yuri Kravtsov.

The head of the engineering holding added that the construction of the platform vault using rolling forms was almost halfway through at the station. Work will soon begin on the platform slab.

Previously, Mr. Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, announced that the design of the Fiztekh station on the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya metro line had been approved. The project’s authors took a science theme as a basis. The rectangular concourse will be surrounded on three sides by unusually shaped columns in the form of large cones, extending upwards and illuminated from inside.

The new section of the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya line will improve transport accessibility of the Dmitrovsky, Vostochnoye Degunino, Beskudnikovsky and Lianozovo districts, as well as the settlement of Severny. Local residents shall save up to 20 minutes when travelling around the city once the new stations are commissioned. Extension of the light-green line will unload the traffic on highways (primarily, on Dmitrovskoye highway), and the northern sections of the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya and Zamoskvoretskaya Lines.
