It is planned to create one more station, ZIL
The project for the construction of the head section of the Troitskaya line from the Sevastopolsky Prospekt station to the ZIL station has been approved. The relevant decree was signed by Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the operator of the Moscow Metro Development Program.
According to the official portal of the Mayor and Moscow Government, the decision was taken following a meeting of the Moscow Government. In particular, it is planned to create one more station, ZIL, on the planned section of the Troitskaya metro line with a length of 1.8 km, which will become an interchange to the same name platform of the Moscow Central Circle (MCC) and later on to the promising Biryulyovskaya line.
“Thus, a new large transport interchange hub (TIB) will be formed, combining three lines of rail public transport: MCC, Troitskaya and Biryulyovskaya metro lines. The head section of the Troitskaya line is traced primarily under non-residential neighborhoods along the northern boundary of the MCC right of the way line,” noted the official portal.
It is assumed that the extension of the Troitskaya metro line under construction from the Krymskaya station to the ZIL station will increase the demand of the Troitskaya Line by the Muscovites due to the formation of a new TIH, improve transport service of Akademichesky, Kotlovka, Nagorny, Donskoy Districts, and eastern part of Danilovsky District with a population of over 400,000, reduce traffic on nearby routes and eventually create a new diametrical line of the metro by extending the future Troitskaya Line to the Nizhegorodskaya station and its junction with the existing Nekrasovskaya Line.
Over the years Mosinzhproekt has introduced more than 105 km of metro lines, 51 stations and 11 electric depots as a general designer and general contractor to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow metro.
