“The construction of the facilities of the prospective Yuzhnoye electric depot of the Zamoskvoretskaya Line of the Moscow Metro is underway”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is the operator of the Moscow Metro Development Programme.

“In-situ concreting is underway as part of the second phase of the construction of the Yuzhnoye electric depot intended for the maintenance and repair of rolling stock of the Zamoskvoretskaya Line. The steel structures of the stabling and repair building are 60% complete. The builders have started constructing the profiled sheet roofing for the prospective roof. With an area of more than 37 thousand square metres, the building is designed for 34 ditches for repair and overnight storage of electric trains”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

According to the Deputy Mayor, the total development area of the multifunctional complex is 13.6 hectares. There will be 33 buildings and structures for various production purposes.

As noted by Konstantin Maslakov, General Director of MIPSTROY 1 (part of the Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies), the auxiliary buildings and facilities as part of the electric depot are actively constructed.

“In-situ concreting is underway to install the reinforced concrete structures of the administration and amenity building (AAB). Foundations are being laid for a complex of technical and service premises for the stabling and repair building, the compressor station, the traction step-down substation and the central heat supply station. We are beginning the construction of a motor depot building, which will be used for technical inspection and repair of diesel shunting locomotives in future”, said Konstantin Maslakov.

The head of MIPSTROY 1 also added that work was under way on the site to construct the grounds for the track superstructure.

“The total length of the track superstructure of the Yuzhnoye electric depot will be about 9 thousand metres and 3,6 thousand metres of the traction third rail”, specified Konstantin Maslakov.

Recall that there are 20 electric depots in operation in Moscow. Six of them are at the various stages of re-construction or construction: Nizhegorodskoye, Yuzhnoye, Salaryevo, Vladykino, Vykhino, Aminyevskoye, owing to which 7000 new jobs will be created in Moscow.
