It’s the part of the Elektrozavodskaya hub

“Installation of two elevators and the elevator equipment of a new pedestrian bridge connecting Rubtsovskaya and Semyonovskaya embankments of the Yauza River, as part of the Elektrozavodskaya transport interchange hub (TIH), is completed”, said Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is a general designer and general contractor for construction of the facility, and acts as one of the operators of the programme aimed at creating TIH network in Moscow.

“Both elevators are installed, the pre-commissioning activities are in progress. Simultaneously, installation, completed by two-thirds, of the internal engineering systems and equipment is in progress, i.e. power supply, lighting, despatching, video surveillance”, said Yuri Kravtsov.

The Head of Mosinzhproekt specified that the overall completion of the pedestrian bridge is estimated at 90%, and the architectural finishing is completed by 80%.

“Primer surfacing and painting of the walls of the first and fourth pillars of the bridge is near to completion, as well as the finishing of the technical premises, installation of the glass lamellas is completed by more than three quarters”, specified the Head of the Holding.

Konstantin Maslakov, General Director of MIP-Stroy 1 (part of the Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies) noted that the company’s specialists are finishing the work related to restoration of Rubtsovskaya and Semyonovskaya embankments.

“In the course of the works performance associated with installation of the support pillars for the bridge superstructure, the structural elements of the old embankments with the foundation resting on the wooden piles, underwent partial dismantling. In order to create a new, more rigid foundation, the technical solution provides for installation of the bored piles at the depth of 20 metres, made from the high-strength concrete featuring the increased resistance to frost and waterproofing. At the site of the dismantled sections of Rubtsovskaya and Semyonovskaya embankments, the work related to their reconstruction is in progress”, said Konstantin Maslakov.

The Head of MIP-Stroy 1 also said that landscaping of both embankments, with the total area of ​​420 square metres, is near to completion.

“Paving with granite around the bridge support pillars is completed, the asphalt concrete pavement of the roadway and pedestrian sidewalks is restored, the trees are being planted”, added Maslakov.

The Elektrozavodskaya hub will integrate the same-name stations on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya and Big Circle (BCL) metro lines, as well as the Elektrozavodskaya platform of the Moscow Railway (MZD).

The project also involves reconstruction of the adjacent streets, arrangement of the parking lots, and comprehensive landscaping of the area. In addition, an underground transfer will be built between the two existing metro stations.
