It will link the Olimpiyskiy Sports Complex to the station
“Construction of the second concourse is envisaged by the adjusted project to construct the Suvorovskaya station on the Circle Line of the Moscow Metro”, said Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow on Urban Planning and Construction.
Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding is the managing company to construct new lines and stations of Moscow Metro.
“During the adjustment of design documentation for the Suvorovskaya station, the possibility is worked out to build a second concourse in addition to the main one planned at the intersection of Durov and Delegatskaya Streets”, said Andrey Bochkarev.
According to him, the second concourse is planned to be constructed at the intersection of Olimpic Avenue and Durov Street.
“This will enable to link to the Olimpiyskiy Sports Complex which is currently being reconstructed via the pedestrian underpass and improve the transport accessibility of the adjacent territory”, said the Deputy Mayor.
Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, explained that the platform part of the Suvorovskaya station will be connected to the second concourse by a 300-metre-long pedestrian underpass. They will accommodate horizontal travolators over 75 metres long for greater convenience for passengers.
“In addition, preparations are being made to provide the mechanisation on the Durov Street construction site and to prepare it for the resumption of construction and installation work”, added the head of the holding.
Recall that the construction of the Suvorovskaya station of the Moscow Metro, stopped several years ago, was resumed in February 2022. The station will be located between the existing Novoslobodskaya and Prospekt Mira stations on the Circle Line and will become an interchange to the Dostoevskaya station of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. Total, in the course of the past 10 years, with involvement of Mosinzhproekt, more than 125 km of metro lines, 61 metro stations, and 11 electric depots were built and commissioned in Moscow.
