Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin annouced that the construction of the Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya metro line is on schedule and will create access to public transport services. “The line is now under construction. The extension of this line will create three additional stations, which will substantially improve access to the whole area,” the Mayor said.
The project is part of the “future developments”program and it should be opened in 2017. Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line is being built in stages. The first stage included the Delovoi Tsentr—Park Pobedy section with two stations, 3.35 km long, and was put into operation in 2014. The second stage included the Park Pobedy—Ramenki section with three stations and is 7.25 km long. The third stage will include the Ramenki-Solntsevo section with four stations and will be 9.1 km long, and the fourth stage, the Solntsevo—Rasskazovka section with three stations will be 5.1-km long.
The Moscow Metro’s new Kalininsko-Solntsevskaya Line extensions are expected to improve transit service for 600,000 people living in the Ramenki, Prospekt Vernadskogo, Ochakovo-Matveyevskoye, Troparyovo-Nikulino, Solntsevo, Novo-Peredelkino districts and the towns of Vnukovo and Moskovsky.
