People in Moscow will be able to observe how the Third Interchange Circuit is built.

Moscow’s Department of Construction plans to resume free excursions to metro construction sites for citizens aged 16 and older. The list of stations has been worked out. Most likely, it will include the Third Interchange Circuit (TIC).

“We will continue the tradition of inviting Muscovites to take part in such excursions. We will inform them about the stations specifics and ‘secrets’ too and also explain the technology used when constructing the Metro,” noted Head of the Department of Construction Andrei Bochkaryov at the Urban Development Forum.

The excursions are supposed to last from one to two hours. Applications can be filled out on the department’s official website using social media. The random numbers generator will select participants, whose maximum number will be 20 people per an excursion.

Prior to an excursion, participants will be briefed on safety precautions. They will be provided with safety helmets and protective clothing. The venues will be thoroughly chosen based on safety criteria for untrained people.

Excursions have been conducted to metro stations under construction for several years already. Earlier, tours of Shelepikha (TIC) and CSKA stations (Khodynskoye Polye) and Rasskazovka station on the Kalinsko-Solntsevskaya Line were held. The above-mentioned stations will have been built this year.
