Construction resumed last summer by resident request.

The Belomorskaya station on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line will be completed by the end of the year, said Andrei Bochkaryov, Head of the Department of Construction.

“The station will be completed next year and will open for service,” the head of the department said.

Mr Bochkaryov added that the contractor had been selected through a tender earlier this year. The station will be located in the north of the city, on the south side of Belomorskaya Street at Smolnaya Street.

The project was to break ground in 2018, but the city, acquiescing to pubic demand, moved the project schedule forward.

This year, the Khovrino metro station will open on the green line. Earlier, Deputy Mayor for Urban Development and Construction Marat Khusnullin said the technical infrastructure for the future transport interchange hub is already being built near Khovrino.
