It will be incorporated into a major hub
“The Pechatniki station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) is 50% complete”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.
Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is a general designer and general contractor to construct the new lines and stations of the Moscow metro.
“Cast-in-situ activities, installation of interior walls and partitions, architectural and finishing activities, and pits backfilling are all underway”, Andrey Bochkarev said.
He pointed out that the key image of the station’s interior design is a capital letter ‘П’ in black and white colour scheme. At the same time, the interchanges are being arranged.
“The BCL Pechatniki station is an essential part of the upcoming transport interchange hub: one concourse will provide interchange to the existing Pechatniki station on the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line, and the second concourse will be connected to the MCD-2 station under construction”, said Konstantin Maslakov, General Director of MIP-Stroy 1 LLC (part of the Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies).
Earlier, the Deputy Mayor said that the new Pechatniki station on the MCD-2 will be commissioned by the summer of 2022. It will be part of the major hub in the south-east of Moscow, which will combine the station on the Lublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line, the MCD-2 and BCL stations under construction, and the ground public transport.
A new transit crossing through railway lines will connect the districts of Tekstilshchiki and Pechatniki.
It is assumed that more than 76 thousand passengers a day will use the new transport hub.
Construction of the Big Circle Line is the main project of the Moscow Metro construction. It will be more than 70 kilometres long, with 31 stations, 22 of which are already open to passengers.
