It will be decorated with aluminium panels

“Architectural finishing of the floor, walls and ceiling of the platform section at the Pechatniki station on the Big Circle Line (BCL) eastern section is underway”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.

Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is one of the operators of the TIH network development programme, as well as the general designer and general contractor to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“Installation of the utilities and finishing of the technical premises are underway at the station. Architectural and finishing activities are also underway in the passenger area. The floor is being laid with granite, the walls and ceiling are being cladded with aluminium panels”, informed Andrey Bochkarev.

The Deputy Mayor recalled that a large transport interchange hub (TIH) is under construction on the basis of the station, which will combine the BCL station under construction, the operating Pechatniki station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line (LDL) and a new station of the second line of the Moscow Central Diameters (MCD2).

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, noted that one of the artistic solutions in the Pechatniki design is a combination of black and white colours. The architectural appearance of the station is based on the image of the capital letter of the station’s name.

“The columns located at the escalators and stairs of the transfer bridge will be a composition of two Russian letters “П”. They will be constructed in black marble. At the ends of the station there will be compositions of inverted Russian “П” letters, which will also serve as benches for passengers”, specified Yuri Kravtsov.

According to the head of engineering holding, the construction of the Pechatniki BCL station is taking place under difficult hydrogeological conditions and in close proximity to the operating station of the LDL.

In addition to Pechatniki, the eastern section includes Nagatinsky Zaton, Klenovy Bulvar, and Tekstilshchiki stations. The length of the section is about 11 km. Its opening will improve the transport accessibility for a number of districts in the south-east of Moscow.

Recall that on 10 June, Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, inspected the Pechatniki TIH under construction and launched the MCD-2 station.

“Transport accessibility is being improved for three districts in Moscow of about 300 thousand people, 50 thousand people just live within walking distance. This provides an opportunity to develop an entire large industrial area, to renovate and reconstruct it, to create new jobs”, emphasized the Mayor of Moscow.
