It’s a station of the plotted Biryulyovskaya metro line
“All three stations of the first section of the future Biryulyovskaya Line: ZIL, Ostrov Mechty and Klenovy Bulvar, will be located in rapidly developing areas of Moscow. Their expected passenger traffic during rush hours will range to tens of thousands”, said 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.
“Passenger traffic at the ZIL station during rush hour can reach 40 thousand people. The station will be located along Likhachev Avenue with access to Tyufeleva Roshcha Park. The station will be connected by interchanges with the operating MCC platform ZIL and the same name station of the Troitskaya metro line under construction”, informed Andrey Bochkarev.
According to the Deputy Mayor, the other two stations of the first section of the prospective line will also be interchangeable. Passenger traffic can reach 29 thousand at the Ostrov Mechty station and about 25 thousand people at the Klenovy Bulvar station during rush hour.
“The Ostrov Mechty station will be located near the theme park of the same name. It will have exits to Andropov Avenue, to the Northern and Southern Landscape Parks, as well as to the prospective residential development on the banks of the Moskva River. There will be an interchange from the Ostrov Mechty to the Tekhnopark station of the Zamoskvoretskaya Line”, said Andrey Bochkarev.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, added that the Klenovy Bulvar station on the Biryulyovskaya Line will have an interchange to the BCL station with the same name. The station of the prospective radial line will be located along Klenovy Bulvar with exits to the residential development located on both sides of the street.
“The architectural design of the Klenovy Bulvar station was established during the open architectural competition supported by the Moscow City Government. A similar competition is now underway to develop the design of the Ostrov Mechty station. Five finalists have already been selected”, said Yuri Kravtsov.
The head of the engineering holding recalled that Mosinzhproekt is the organiser of open architectural competitions.
The 21 km long Biryulyovskaya Line currently under construction will accommodate ten stations. According to the design documentation, the line is divided into three sections. The site planning for the section from the ZIL station to Klenovy Bulvar has been approved, the documents for the other two sections are being drawn up.
Commissioning of the Biryulyovskaya Line will improve transport services in the south and south-east of Moscow. The radial line will go through seven districts: Danilovsky, Nagatinsky Zaton, Moskvorechye-Saburovo, Tsaritsyno, Biryulyovo Zapadnoye, Biryulyovo Vostochnoye, and Pechatniki.
