It’s designed to provide comfortable conditions for work and rest

“In-situ concreting has been completed on the combined maintenance personnel building (CMPB) as part of the future Pechatniki transport interchange hub (TIH)”, 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.

The total area of the CMPB is 6,6 thousand square metres. The main structures of all six above-ground floors and one underground floor, which will house the utilities, have been completed. Inside the building, brick partition walls are being built and the architectural finishing has also started”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

According to him, the CMPB is designed to provide comfortable conditions for the personnel work and rest at the eastern section of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Metro.

Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, added that at the same time the concrete is being poured in Concourse 2, located next to the CMPB.

“It gives an entrance to the TIH from Shosseynaya Street. In particular, it will be used to access the above-ground gallery to the newly opened MCD 2 Pechatniki platform”, specified Yuri Kravtsov.

The head of the engineering holding specified that the entrance to the TIH will also be from Guryanova Street. Passengers will be able to reach the prospective Pechatniki BCL station and the operating same name station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line via Concourse 1.

Also as part of the TIH, there will be an underground pedestrian crossing through Guryanova Street, and modern surface public transport stops will be installed, which will be accessed by both of the new concourses under construction.

In addition to Pechatniki, the 11 km long eastern section of the BCL includes the Nagatinsky Zaton, Klenovy Bulvar and Tekstilshchiki station complexes. Its opening will improve the transport accessibility for a number of districts in the south-east of Moscow.

Recall that previously, Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, inspected the construction progress of the Pechatniki TIH and opened the MCD 2 platform of the same name as part of it.

“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.
