The station was built and opened as part of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line from Michurinskiy Prospekt station to Rasskazovka station. Section length: 15.3 km, number of stations: 7.
The architectural solution of Rasskazovka station:
The architectural concept of the station combines the Art Deco decorative style and the space of a classic public library reading hall. The main elements of the interior are columns decorated as filing cabinets. They are a virtual library where every passenger can download a bar code (QR code) for their favorite literature.
Near the station’s entrance hall, Rasskazovka is a monument to writers and metro construction workers. It consists of two parts – a fragment of the tunneling machine rotor and sculptures of the writer and the worker. The rotor part of the shield is 6.5 meters; its weight is about 46 tons; the sculptural group weighs 5 tons.
As a result of the commissioning of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line from Michurinskiy Prospekt station to Rasskazovka station, a fast, uninterrupted connection between the south-western, western, central, and eastern districts of the city was created; the load on the existing neighboring lines and the main metro stations was reduced.
Modern fire and anti-terrorist security systems have been installed at the site. Accessibility for people with limited mobility is ensured.
AWARDS AND ACHIEVEMENTS:
A section of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line from Michurinskiy Prospekt station to Rasskazovka station – the winner in the Best Implemented Project for Construction of Metro and Railway Transport Facilities category of The Best Implemented Project in the Construction Industry competition
The opening of seven stations simultaneously on one metro line is a record for the Moscow Metro. The last time such a large section was introduced in 1983 on the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya line (section from Serpukhovskaya station to Yuzhnaya station).
