“General construction readiness of Tekstilshchiki of the Big Circle Line (BCL) is estimated at 50%”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the operator of the Moscow Metro Development Program.
“The main cast-in-situ structures of the station complex are 90% complete. In parallel, the utility systems are being installed, and architectural and finishing works are carried out,” said Andrey Bochkarev.
According to him, in parallel, active work are being conducted at other stations on the east of the Big Circle LIne, including Pechatniki, Nagatinsky Zaton and Klenovy Bulvar. Meanwhile, a total readiness of the eastern section of the BCL is estimated at about 43%.
In his turn, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, specified that at Tekstilshchiki of the BCL the power cable laying has already begun, and installation of air ducts is almost 50% complete.
“Six escalators out of 13 have been installed, and work has begun on laying granite on the platform part,” explained the holding head.
He also added that the concourse and station hall would be finished with porcelain stoneware and gray stone. The two-level ceiling will be made of aluminum panels with embedded lighting fixtures. The platform will be illuminated with blue light.
Earlier it was reported about the start of tunneling of the last 70th tunnel of the BCL between the Klenovy Bulvar and Kashirskaya stations. “One of the main projects for the development of the Moscow transport hub is the Big Circle Line. When we fully complete its construction, Muscovites will save a lot of time – they no longer have to go to the city center to change from one radial line to another,” Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, commented on this event.
