The extension will make the trip to Troitsk 15–20 minutes faster. Construction will begin this year.

The Moscow General Planning Research and Development Institute has begun developing a project to extend the new metro line from Stolbovo station to the village of Desyonovskoye and the town of Troitsk under a directive from the Moscow Committee for Architecture and Urban Planning (Moskomarkhitektura). The working name of the station is Kommunarskaya. This section will extend the new line to be built from Ulitsa Novatorov station on the Big Circle Line to Stolbovo.

The new line will be built in the area where 400,000–450,000 Muscovites live. It will make the trip from Troitsk to old Moscow 15–20 minutes faster. In addition, it will improve the environmental situation in the Novomoskovsky Administrative Area.

The institute designed the plans for the Ulitsa Novatorov-Stolbovo section. There will be seven stations along the line: Ulitsa Novatorov, Ulitsa Akademika Oparina, Ulitsa Generala Tyuleneva, Slavyansky Mir, Mamyri, Kommunarka, and Stolbovo. According to Deputy Mayor on for Urban Development and Construction Marat Khusnullin, construction will begin this year. It is expected to be completed in 2023.
