In-situ concreting is 85% complete at the station

“Installation of ventilation and power supply systems has started at the Tyutchevskaya station of the promising Troitskaya Line”, informed Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is a general designer and general contractor to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow metro.

“The installation of ventilation ducts and cable brackets for the electrical cable is underway”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

According to the head of the Construction Complex, the overall readiness of the Tyutchevskaya station is estimated at around 60%.

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, specified that the installation of utilities is carried out mainly under the platform and in the indoor premises of the station complex, where, in parallel, the construction of brick partitions and the architectural finishing are underway.

“In-situ concreting is 85% complete at the station: the main structures of the concourse, as well as the exit chamber and headshunts adjacent to the station are being erected”, specified Yuri Kravtsov.

The head of the engineering holding said that a maintenance station and overnight storage of the rolling stock on the Troitskaya Line will be set up here, and a ventilation chamber will be installed.

“In addition, pouring of the rigid bedding is nearly complete and work in topside structure has started in the tunnels adjacent to the station”, specified Yuri Kravtsov.

The Troitskaya Line, 40 km long, under construction will connect the platforms of the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) with the urban district of Troitsk, passing through the Southern, South-Western, Troitsky and Novomoskovsky districts of Moscow. The expected daily passenger traffic flow is around 100,000 people per day. Around one million people live in the zone of influence of the new stations, and several hundred thousand more work or study nearby.
