The construction and installation have been completed in full at the two additional exits from the Aminyevskaya station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the Moscow Metro and the engineering equipment inspection has begun, according to Mr. Andrey Bochkarev, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Urban Planning and Construction.
The Mosinzhproekt Group of Companies is a general designer and general contractor for the construction of new lines and stations of the Moscow Metro.
“At the additional exits to the city from the Aminyevskaya BCL station, the testing and commissioning of utilities that ensure safe operation have begun, in particular the video surveillance, fire alarm, ventilation and smoke exhaust systems”, said Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.
According to Deputy Mayor, the operation of the installed lift equipment is also being inspected. A lift with a capacity of eight passengers has been installed at each exit.
Mr. Yuri Kravtsov, CEO, Mosinzhproekt JSC, added that staircases leading down to the station concourse and ticket hall have been installed at ground level.
“A metal rack suspended ceiling with spotlights, granite floors and marble walls have been installed in the pavilions”, informed Mr. Yuri Kravtsov.
The head of the holding specified that one of the new exits under construction leads from the station to Aminyevskoye highway in the direction of Michurinsky avenue and to a public transport stop. The other is located near the turnaround flyover and will provide access to the Matveyevsky Park housing estate, which is currently under construction.
Five exits to the city were opened as part of the Aminyevskaya station launch in December 2021. It is also connected by an underground passage with the same name platform of the future MCD 4.
The station is located in the Ochakovo-Matveyevskoye District, with exits to residential areas on Bolshaya Ochakovskaya Street and Ochakovskoye Highway. A transport interchange hub (TIH) is being established on the Aminyevskaya station basis.
The opening of ten stations of the Big Circle Line: Terekhovo, Kuntsevskaya, Davydkovo, Aminyevskaya, Michurinsky Prospekt, Prospect Vernadskogo, Novatorskaya, Vorontsovskaya, Zyuzino, and Kakhovskaya, is the largest one-time launch in the history of the Moscow Metro.
