Following the approval of the layout design for two more sections of the Biryulyovskaya metro line, its entire route has been provided with urban planning documentation, 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.

“The layout projects for the last two sections of the Biryulyovskaya metro line, from the Klenovy Bulvar station to Kashirskoye highway and on to Biryulyovo Zapadnoye district, have been approved. Thus, the urban planning documentation for the entire Biryulyovskaya line from the ZIL station to the Biryulyovo station with a total length of 22 km has been approved”, said Mr. Andrey Bochkarev.

According to him, thanks to the new line, the layout of which was developed by the General Plan Institute, the Moscow metro will become more accessible to more than 700 thousand residents – the metro will come to the areas where it has long been awaited.

“The main advantage that the Biryulyovskaya Line will bring to the city is the new transport links, and you can never have too many of them. Residents of Biryulyovo Zapadnoye and Biryulyovo Vostochnoye, who currently have to travel to neighbouring districts to reach the nearest metro stations, will get their stations basically within walking distance”, explained Deputy Mayor.

He added that the Biryulyovskaya Line would improve transport services for the residents of seven districts in Southern and South-Eastern administrative districts of Moscow, which are Danilovsky, Nagatinsky Zaton, Moskvorechye-Saburovo, Tsaritsyno, Biryulyovo Zapadnoye, Biryulyovo Vostochnoye and Pechatniki.

Ms. Yuliana Knyazhevskaya, Chairman of the Moscow Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning, specified that according to the project, 10 stations and one electric depot would be constructed on the new line.

“The layout of the first section was approved in 2021 and includes the following stations: ZIL, Ostrov Mechty and Klenovy Bulvar. Seven stations will be constructed in the presently approved sections: from the Klenovy Bulvar station to Kashirskoye highway, the Kuryanovo and Moskvorechye stations will appear, and in the third section – the Kavkazsky Bulvar, Kaspiyskaya, Lipetskaya, Lebedyanskaya and Biryulyovo stations”, told Ms. Yuliana Knyazhevskaya.

According to her, the line will allow citizens to take new, convenient routes to the Dream Island amusement park, the Kolomenskoye Museum-Reserve and ZIL.
Besides, the southern sections of the Zamoskvoretskaya and Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya lines will be unloaded.

Four stations on the new line will also have transport interchange hubs (TIH): the Biryulyovo station will be connected to the Biryulyovo-Passazhirskaya platform of the Moscow Railway Paveletsky direction (in the future it will become part of the MCD-5 route), the Klenovy Bulvar and Ostrov Mechty stations will become interchanges with the Big Circle and Zamoskvoretskaya metro lines, respectively, and the ZIL station will provide interchanges to the Troitskaya metro line under construction and the MCC.

More than 150 kilometres of lines of the total number of the metro assets commissioned in Moscow have been constructed with the involvement of Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding. The Group of Companies has commissioned 70 metro stations and 11 electric depots, six of which are new and five of which are of a reconstructed type.
