The construction of the new Kozhukhovskaya Line in southeast Moscow is to be completed in 2018, construction of the stations is underway on the new line, said Deputy Moscow Mayor for Urban Development and Construction Marat Khusnullin.
“Construction for all of the Kozhukhovskaya Line stations is now underway,” Khusnullin said. “For example, the basic structures at the Lukhmanovskaya and Nekrasovka stations are now being put in place, while utility systems are being realigned at the Aviamotornaya, Nizhegorodskaya Ulitsa, Stakhanovskaya, Okskaya Ulitsa, Yugo-Vostochnaya, Kosino and Ulitsa Dmitrievskogo station sites.”
Mr Khusnullin said the new line would provide metro access to more residential areas that previously has no metro stations within walking distance and reduce passenger flow on the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line.
A large 10-metre double-track tunnel drilling machine was used on the Kozhukhovskaya Line project for the first time.
The new metro line will run from the Nekrasovka residential area via the districts of Kosino-Ukhtomsky, Nizhegorodsky, Vykhino, Zhulebino and Ryazansky Prospekt and connect with the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line, and will cross and provide a change at the Lermontovsky Prospekt station .The new line will also be integrated into the currently under construction Third Interchange Circuit on the metro.
