Preparations for the installation of decorative panels on the tunnel walls and the flooring have started at the Yakhromskaya station of the extension section on the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya metro line, according to Mr. Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.

The Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.

“Last year, the cast-in-situ structure of the platform was fully completed at the Yakhromskaya station. Currently, roll waterproofing is being laid on the concrete to protect it from moisture, after which it is planned to start laying the granite slabs in light grey and red”, stated Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.

According to Deputy Mayor, the installation of bracing for the metal panels’ installation on the platform section walls is underway.

Mr. Yuri Kravtsov, CEO, Mosinzhproekt JSC, noted that one of the tunnel walls would be completely covered by a panel of 22 triple-layered aluminium panels of 1.5 by 5 metres each.

“They will form a single colossal composition about the life of Moscow and Muscovites of the past. The panels will be attached to a frame using aluminium subsystems”, said Mr. Yuri Kravtsov.

The head of the engineering holding specified that red and white would be also actively used in the platform decoration. The tunnel wall opposite the panel will be paneled in red.

Recall that the Yakhromskaya station is located along Dmitrovskoye highway between Yakhromsky passage and 800-Letiya Moskvy Street. In addition to the Yakhromskaya station, the Lianozovo and Fiztekh stations are being built on the extension section of the Lyublino-Dmitrovskaya metro line.

The opening of the new section will improve transport services in Dmitrovsky, Vostochnoye Degunino, Beskudnikovsky and Lianozovo districts, as well as the Severny urban settlement: their residents will be able to save up to 20 minutes while travelling around the city. The extension of the light green line will also unload Dmitrovskoye highway.
