Aviamotornaya and Lefortovo are the two new stations on Moscow’s Big Circle Line which will be opened by the end of this year. They will operate, at first, as a continuation of Nekrasovskaya Line, currently under construction, as reported by the Deputy Moscow Mayor for Urban Development and Construction Marat Khusnullin.
The two stations create the third section of the prospective Nekrasovskaya line, while Nekrasovka, Lukhmanovskaya, Ulitsa Dmitriyevskogo and Kosino stations are on the first section, which is planned to launch early in June.
Aviamotornaya station will become part of a large transport hub with access to the multifunctional center as well. It will be connected into a transport hub with the same-name station of the Yellow line, land transport stops and the railway station of the Kazansky direction. There will also be a direct access from the vestibules to the multifunctional center to be built in place of the Lefortovo market.
According to Marat Khusnullin, the middle section (second one), from Kosino to Nizhegorodskaya, is the most difficult and the authorities plan “to bring it at least to construction readiness by the end of the year, and to open it for passengers as the best case scenario,” the Deputy Mayor emphasized.
During the construction of the Big Circle Line, the focus is on the construction of transport hubs to connect the new stations with the existing ones, as well as with railway platforms, transport stops and Moscow Central Circle (MCC) stations.
The Big Circle Line, with a total length of 70 km served by 31 stations and two train maintenance facilities, is city’s longest metro line which is expected to be completed by 2022. In 2020 and 2021, the northern section will enter services.
