Shcholkovskaya metro station exits to be equipped with lifts
Shcholkovskoye Motorway is undergoing reconstruction work, which will finish in November next year.

Reconstruction of the northern exit of Shcholkovskaya metro station (Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line) is now under way, said Andrei Bochkaryov, Head of the Moscow Department of Construction.  There are plans to equip each of the four exits from that station with a lift.

“In total, the reconstruction of Shcholkovskoye Motorway between the Moscow Ring Road and the Garden Ring involves renovation and construction of five pedestrian underpasses,” the Department Head said.

One pass under Shcholkovskoye Motorway has already been renovated and put into operation, and work on three other ones is in progress. The reconstruction of the motorway will be completed in November 2017.

On 16 September, traffic opened on the flyover at the intersection of Shcholkovskoye Motorway with 9th Parkovaya Street.
