Tunnel boring machines have already crossed the MKAD
More than two-thirds of the running tunnels between the future Lianozovo and Fiztekh stations of the new section of Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line have been built, 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 the capital’s subway.
“Tunnel boring machines (TBM) “Tatiana” and “Irina”, which began tunneling in November 2020, have already crossed the MKAD (Moscow Ring Road), while the right running tunnel has been run by 76%, and the left running tunnel — by 71%”, said Andrey Bochkarev.
According to the deputy mayor, the tunnel passage between the current Seligerskaya station and Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy under construction has already been completed.
In his turn, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt JSC, specified that the left running tunnel between Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy and Lianozovo has also been passed. “Currently, the right running tunnel is being drilled between Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy and Lianozovo stations, its readiness is estimated at 73%. The work is being carried out by TBM ‘Klavdia'”, Yuri Kravtsov explained and added that the active work is being carried out at all three stations of the “light green” branch under construction.
Earlier today, Sergei Sobyanin, Mayor of Moscow, during an inspection of the construction of Lianozovo station, announced the traffic launching on a new section of Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line in 2023 and announced the creation of a new transport interchange hub in the north of the capital.
Three stations will appear on Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya section under construction: Ulitsa 800-letiya Moskvy, Lianozovo and Fiztekh, which will improve transport accessibility for the districts of Dmitrovsky, Eastern Degunino, Beskudnikovsky and Lianozovo, as well as Severny village. Their residents will be able to save up to 20 minutes when traveling around the city after the commissioning of new stations. Also, the extension of the “light green” branch will lessen the highways (primarily Dmitrovskoe highway) and the northern sections of Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya and Zamoskvoretskaya metro lines.
