It will have six new stations
The capital approved the first section of the Rublevo-Arkhangelskaya metro line between Shelepikha and Lipovaya Roscha. The relevant document was signed by the Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin, reported in the Mayor’s Press Office, and following a meeting of the Presidium of the Moscow Government. Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the managing company to construct new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.
“The planning project of the first section of Rublevo-Arkhangelskaya metro line – from Shelepikha station to Lipovaya Roscha station – has been approved.” The Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin signed the decree on the matter, as noted in the report.
Six new stations are planned, covering 12.65 km: Zvenigorodskaya, Karamyshevskaya, Bulvar Karbysheva, Zhivopisnaya, Strogino, and Lipovaya Roscha.
It is assumed that the construction of the new line will improve transport services for more than half a million residents of some districts of Moscow Western Administrative District and North-Western Administrative District, including the renovation neighborhood and comprehensive development territories will reduce traffic intensity on the street and road network and unload the burden of the central section of the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya metro line.
Since 2011 Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding has built more than 105 kilometers of metro lines in Moscow. 51 metro stations and eleven depots are now open. Today, the key project of Moscow metro construction is the Big Circle Line, the longest in the world with its total length of 70 kilometers. In addition to the Rublevo-Arkhangelskaya line, construction work continues on two new radial lines: Troitskaya and Biryulevskaya.
