Second section of Moscow metro Line 15 opened

The Nekrasovskaya Line (Line 15) is now fully operational, as of March 27, the Moscow Mayor, Sergey Sobyanin, has officially opened the second 14.5 km section of the line, linking the Nekrasovka and Lefortovo stations.

The new section brings the line to a total length of 22.3 km served by 10 stations.

“We have completed the construction works for one of the largest metro lines in Moscow. 22 km and 10 stations link Nekrasovka station to Lefortovo station. This is the final section of the Nekrasovskaya line. The branch is the most important, thanks to its transport accessibility. It will improve transport services for almost a million citizens,” Sobyanin said.

The new and final metro section of this line has 6 stations, of which two are part of the Big Circle Line. The section reduces travel time by 30 minutes, compared to road transport.

In 2019, Moscow Metro has opened the first 7.9 km section of Nekrasovskaya Line with four stations, from Kosino station to Nekrasovka station.

The Line 5 is offering transfer to the other transport modes, with stations providing connection to the entire metro system, Moscow Central Circle, railway transport and road transport (to the Moscow Ring Road).
