Second entrance halls of the Butyrskaya and Fonvizinskaya stations to open before the end of the year
A common entrance hall of the two Petrovsko-Razumovskaya metro stations on the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya and Serpukhovsko-Timiryazveskaya lines will open in 2017.

Second exits from the Butyrskaya and the Fonvizinskaya stations on the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya metro line is expected to open before the end of December. The vestibule of the Petrovsko-Razumovskaya metro station, another station on the light green line, will open in 2017. It will form a common vestibule with the station of the same name on the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazveskaya Line.

“Metro builders are continuing to build entrance halls, decorating their interiors and preparing them to open,” Head of Moscow’s Department of Construction Andrei Bochkaryo said.

Builders are using durable materials for the interior: marble, granite and stainless steel. They will install ramps with non-skid coating, light and contrasting lanes and textured surfaces in underpasses for people with limited mobility.

Three new stations of the northern section of the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line – Butyrskaya, Fonvizinskaya and Petrovsko-Razumovskaya – opened in September.

The Butyrskaya station is located near Ogorodny Proyezd between Rustaveli Street and Planned Street No 766. The station has two entrance halls. The first is in Ogorodny Proyezd with exits to both sides, and the second one is at the intersection of Rustaveli Street with Ogorodny Proyezd.

Fonvizinskaya is located at the intersection of Fonvizina Street with Milashenkova Street. Its northwest vestibule has exits to both sides of Milashenkova Street. Its southeast vestibule has exits to both sides of Milasehnkova and Fonvizina streets, the Milashenkova Street monorail station and bus stops.

Petrovsko-Razumovskaya station is located near the station of the same name on the grey metro line between Dmitrovskoye Motorway and the Moscow Savyolovskaya Railway. The station has two vestibules with exits to Dmitrovskoye Motorway: the bus terminal and the Petrovsko-Razumovskaya station on the Oktyabrskaya Railway.  

The Moscow authorities plan to open the Okruzhnaya, Verkhniye Likhobory and Seligerskaya metro stations on the light green metro line in the second half of 2017. The extension of the Lyublinskaya-Dmitrovskaya Line to the north will considerably improve public access to the Butyrsky and Timiryazevsky districts and take the load off the Serpukhovsko-Timiryazveskaya Line. The number of passengers using the new stations will exceed 20,000 during rush hours.
