All available green space will be preserved
“The beautification area adjacent to the territory of the Kakhovskaya station under reconstruction will be more than 40,000 sq. m.”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the managing company to construct new lines and stations of Moscow Metro.
“During the landscaping of the territory adjacent to the Kakhovskaya station, all available green space will be preserved, which is more than 360 trees and shrubs. Near the station, flower beds will be arranged, benches and litter bins will be placed. In total, the beautification area will be more than 40,000 sq.m., about 18,000 “squares” of them will be completed in the first phase of the commissioning of the station, and about 22,000 sq.m. will be landscaped later, during the second phase, along with the opening of a new Sevastopolskaya interchange on the Grey Line,” said Andrey Bochkarev.
According to him, near the station, which after the reconstruction will be a part of the Big Circle Line (BCL), the bituminous concrete pavement will be restored, and bicycle parking lots will be arranged.
In turn, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, explained that the installation of the renovated wall panels at the station is currently in progress.
“The architectural and finishing work on the tunnel walls is also nearing completion. The installation of suspended ceilings in the ticket halls and concourses of the station is in progress,” added the holding head.
Remember that Kakhovskaya, Varshavskaya, and Kashirskaya stations of the former Kakhovskaya Line are under comprehensive reconstruction, as a result of which they will become part of the Big Circle Line of Moscow Metro. Today, the BCL is the main underground construction project in Moscow: it will be 70 km long with 31 stations, 12 of which have already been opened for passengers. By the end of the year, it is planned to commission another nine new stations and the Kakhovskaya station under reconstruction.
