THE MONOLITHIC STRUCTURES OF THE INTERCHANGE AT THE PECHATNIKI BCL STATION ARE 40% COMPETE

It will become a part of one of the largest Moscow hubs

“The main structures of the interchange between the Pechatniki stations of the Big Circle Line (BCL) and the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line are 40% 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 new lines and stations of the Moscow metro.

“Today, the construction of the Pechatniki transport and interchange hub is being carried out very actively”, said Andrey Bochkarev.

The Deputy Mayor recalled that the Pechatniki TIH would be one of the largest in the south-east of the capital and would allow to evenly distribute passenger flows and provide a comfortable interchange between the stations for 17 thousand people in rush hour.

“The transport hub will combine the Pechatniki BCL station under construction and the operating station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line, as well as the prospective MCD-2 Pechatniki platform and above-ground urban transport. We plan to open an interchange to the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line in parallel with the BCL station”, said Bochkarev.

According to Konstantin Maslakov, General Director of MIP-Stroy 1 (part of the Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies), the Pechatniki BCL and the Pechatniki station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line will be linked by a pedestrian gallery.

“The monolithic staircase descent to the platform of the existing Pechatniki station is fully completed. Construction of the main structures of the interchange, the pedestrian gallery, is underway. We estimate their readiness to be 40%. In addition, architectural and finishing work at the operating station and construction of walls under the prospective stairwell crossing have begun”, said Konstantin Maslakov.

The eastern section of BCL includes four stations: Klenovy Bulvar, Nagatinsky Zaton, Pechatniki and Tekstilshchiki. The eastern section is 11 km long. Its opening will improve the transport accessibility for a number of districts in the south-east of Moscow.

Creation of the Big Circle Line is the principal project of the Moscow Metro construction. Its length will exceed 70 km, and it will accommodate 31 stations, 22 of which are already open to passengers. The Big Circle Line will link the existing and prospective lines of the Moscow Metro.
