Mr. Vladimir Putin, Russian President, and Mr. Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, opened the traffic along the entire Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Moscow Metro.
The Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.
“Today, we are opening nine stations on the Big Circle Line of the Moscow Metro. This was the final stage of a large-scale construction project. Mr. Sergei Sobyanin has reported to me many times on how this construction was going. The new circle line is now fully commissioned, and it has become available for travel along its entire length. I congratulate residents of Moscow and the Moscow Region on this remarkable event”, stated Mr. Vladimir Putin, according to the ‘Moskva’ CNA.
In turn, Mr. Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, thanked Mr. Vladimir Putin for his appreciation of the Moscow Construction Complex work.
“Today is a historic event not only for the metro, but for the entire transport system and Moscow. It is the biggest and most challenging project in the history of metro construction. It is the new heart of Moscow’s transport system, which integrates both the MCD and the MCC and metro lines into a single transport system, and allows new metro lines to be connected, creating the future of the transport system. This is, of course, a huge and important project”, stressed Mr. Sergei Sobyanin.
Mayor expressed his gratitude to all Moscow residents who had also contributed to the BCL project.
Nine stations of the Big Circle Line were commissioned: Maryina Roshcha, Rizhskaya, Sokolniki, Tekstilshchiki, Pechatniki, Nagatinsky Zaton, Klenovy Bulvar, Kashirskaya, and Varshavskaya.
The creation of the Big Circle Line is the main project of the Moscow Metro construction. It is more than 70 km long and has 31 stations. The Big Circle Line connects the existing and future lines of the Moscow Metro.
