Finishing work continues in the passenger zone of the Michurinskiy Prospekt station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Moscow Metro; soon, they will begin installing decorative panels, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the government of Moscow on urban policy and the construction Andrey Bochkarev. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the managing company to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.
“At Michurinskiy Prospekt of the Big Circle Line, builders continue dressing the passenger zone of the platform. The installation of subsystems for the decorative panels on the track walls is at the final stage – their installation will begin by the end of the month,” said Andrey Bochkarev.
As he said, the wall lining with Sayan marble in the escalator zone is being continued.
In turn, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JCS, explained that installation work began on the previously installed escalator equipment in both station halls.
“In addition, the finishing work in the office premises of the station is underway, their readiness is estimated at 54%. Monolithic works on constructing a crosswalk via Udaltsova Street and the change to the same-name station on Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line continue,” added the head of the Holding.
It is assumed that the Michurinskiy Prospekt station will be three-span with two rows of columns. It will be based on panels with built-in lights under the ceiling, half of which will be made of translucent material with laser deposition of ornaments, and the other half will be made of brushed stainless steel with a graphic design.
The Michurinskiy Prospekt station is planned as part of the southwestern section of the Big Circle Line. In addition, there will be a change to the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line. When it is open, the central interchange hubs of the metro, the adjacent sections of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya, and Sokolnicheskaya lines will lessen the load; it will reduce traffic on the adjacent areas of the street and road network, including Michurinsky Prospekt, Udaltsova Street, Aminevskoye Highway, Lobachevsky Street.

Various – from the desire to take children for a walk in the park near one’s home to the need to get quality medical care. The city with an individual at its center. Every Moscow resident,” said Sergey Sobyanin.
