Four new Sokolnicheskaya metro line stations opened in New Moscow
On June 20, 2019, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin opened four stations of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line in the Troitsky and Novomoskovsky administrative districts of Moscow. Mostotrest acted as the general contractor for the project.
The new section of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line runs from the Salaryevo station to the intersection with the Solntsevo-Butovo-Varshavskoye Avenue road, then follows the road through a combined tunnel and crosses Kaluzhskoye Avenue to terminate at the Kommunarka station.
As part of the project, Mostotrest built a new double track section with a length of 11.6 km. The length of the section along mainline tracks totalled 9.3 km
In addition, Mostotrest built two ground metro stations (Filatov Lug and Prokshino) and two underground stations (Olkhovaya and Kommunarka).
At the conclusion of the contract in May 2018, the construction period was determined to be 518 days from the date of signing. Therefore, the project was commissioned by Mostotrest with a significant lead over the contract period.
The opening of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line between the Salaryevo and Kommunarka stations will allow to:
• significantly improve transport services for residents of the entire Troitsk and Novomosk Administrative Districts (TNAD) and, specifically, New Moscow's communities of Moskovski and Sosenskoye, reducing travel time to the city centre to 40 minutes
Х reduce metro-bound flow of TNAD residents (approx. 500 thousand people by 2020) and, consequently, relieve Kievskoye Avenue (-20%), Kaluzhskoye Avenue (-10%) and the Moscow Ring Road (MRR) (-9%)
Х ensure safe passage of pedestrians across the Solntsevo - Butovo – Varshavskoye Avenue road, with exits on both sides of the road towards residential and public buildings, as well as public ground transport stops
Х relieve the Salaryevo station (-14%) of the Sokolnicheskaya metro line, Raskazovka station (-12%) of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya line, Teply Stan station (-17%) of the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya line, and Buninskaya Alley (-15%) of the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazevskaya line.
Х improve the environmental situation in the TNAD by reducing intensity of land transport on the Kievskoye and Kaluzhskoye avenues, including approaches to the MRR.
Currently, Mostotrest continues to work on the construction of the Solntsevo Ц Butovo - Varshavskoye Avenue road (Borovskoye Avenue Ц Kaluzhskoye Avenue and Kievskoye Avenue - Kaluzhskoye Avenue sections). The road will create transport links between Kievskoye and Kaluzhskoye avenues bypassing the MRR: the road will run parallel to the MRR and link the two districts of the capital with the town of Vidnoye, as well as redistribute traffic flows between the radial roads at the MRR entrance points, partly relieving them of existing traffic.
Together with the new road, the Salaryevo - Kommunarka metro section will ensure accessibility of New Moscow's districts, and will become a component of modern transport infrastructure of the Russian capital.
