Life under the Leningrad prospectus: building Halabyan-Baltic tunnel (photos)

Author of the report — Roman (Docent) Vukolov

A week ago, a cozy swamp lytdybr and other "mimimishnyh lion" in some blozhek with extensive-promoted rating has stirred up a wave of similar "reports" from Halabyan-Baltic tunnel. Because of this online community organization suspected of selling their authors and paid services. I can not judge, as there was in reality the case. I myself do not have the necessary rating, kartinochek with the seals are not published, but the tunnels and construction — this is mine, and I hope my readers favorite topic, briefly, on the visit of the tunnel I made independently by Information center SZH, and no one in it for me did not pay a dime. So I'm going to tell in their own words and their own photo. By the way, get "tunneling" in a big hole, a few years hinders me and many others go to the streets to Alabjana Leningradku, I tried a year ago but for some reason this did not happen. We will try to catch up now.

  • Baltic tunnel, north-west chord

For those who have no clue or not from Moscow city government as it seeks to solve the traffic situation, uncorking cork razrulit nerazrulivaemoe and make the city comfortable. So far there think that one of the best solutions for this — to convert some existing streets in broad bezsvetofornye highway. The tunnel, about which will be discussed as part of future times of the North-West of the chord, it will connect the street Alabjana, Baltic and more academic street. About this road many disputes, especially unhappy with her appearance were in the houses, the windows of which will be held chord.
Someone, perhaps, immediately ask, "Hey, Assistant Professor, since nobody will pay that yourself, then think about it all?". I am not an expert in the field of road construction, and not even a theoretician, as some popular bloggers writing detailed posts in the spirit of "why do not turn in the street" highways "in Moscow" (Material, by the way, curious, is essential reading.) I can only speculate as a local user and the vehicle. And that's what I think. For myself, I think — this tunnel is very necessary. I get to move between their Khoroshevo-Mnevniki and northern region. These areas are not very far, but there is no easy road. And do not tell me about the subway and other PAs. In my great area no metro stations "close proximity" to them should get a bus or trolley, which are also often feel sick on the street facing the People's Militia, but with much less than in the comfort of the car, not to mention the fact that this transport is necessary still wait. Before the subway at rush hour can get 30-40 minutes (no matter what walk!). Trains run from the nearest station to me (for example, from the October field, to some Tepliy) also will not be fast, with transfers. A desired area in a straight line, that's it, next.
Previously, at the intersection of the street Alabjana and Leningrad Prospect was light, which is already in the 90s collecting corks. And to get to the Baltic streets on more academic was not possible because of the railway Riga direction. We had to go around through the Leningrad highway, further it has loaded. It is curious that the layout of the area under Stalin called for the construction of a straight road, but then assumed a variant with a bridge. I do not think that the locals would be more than happy to byly presence at the windows of the bridge, tunnels much more attractive, though more expensive.
As for the bezsvetofornoy chord in whole — of that I am wary, despite all very convincing assurances received in the Information Center SZH. Yet these lines are cut areas, it always goes on a lot of machines that create a lot of noise and air pollutants. Even though me and convinced that this is not a "highway", but did go on it will not be like on the "highway"? When we came near by Zvenigorodskoe highway, because of the noise to sleep with the window open in the summer was difficult: the night on her chase motorcyclists and street racers, their roar creating a feeling that you are in the championship of Formula 1 (DPS? Penalty? No, not heard!) , in the afternoon buzzing busy day traffic. Ecology has since suffered too: this week on the window ledge formed a significant layer of brown dust in the area was significantly smaller birds. And all this despite the fact that my house is in the courts and not the road runs under windows. I can only sympathize with people living right next to that road. In this case, the highway in the mornings and evenings, collects enormous traffic jams, the main reason which of course congresses-trips-turns-tunnels that no matter how clearly hints: the problem of congestion bezsvetofornye wide roads do not solve.
In the North-West of the chord will be a lot of turns, but we must not forget that the reason is wanting to turn around too much, and at any conventions and turns are often collected corks, plus slow motion through rearranging the one side of the road in the opposite direction. Additionally, all this is exacerbated AutoCAD, fundamentally do not want to be on a par with the others, and climbing to the turn of the second and third row. In general, there is quite possible to agree with the above mentioned "theoreticians."

Halabyan-Baltic tunnel promised to open in 2009, completion time ever moved away. New date is scheduled for mid-2013. I've seen a lot of underground work, here is the forecast, in my opinion, looks very optimistic. Let's go through the tunnel under construction.

01. The work in the tunnel in the direction of Alabjana to the Baltic under the Leningrad prospectus (view toward the Baltic street).

02. When you find yourself in places where excavation continues, you know how massive this building, how many tasks have to be solved in its design, and why the work continues so long. The fact that Halabyan-Baltic tunnel not only runs under the line of the metro, tunnels Leningrad Prospect, lots of communication, the collector underground river and the railway, there is also a weak watered soil (wet sand on the beach imagine?). In order that all this would not matter has spread and collapsed during construction, it is necessary to strengthen the ground before digging it. To do this, in the soil, which is to be removed when drilling a tunnel constructed an array of horizontal grouting piles:

03. Then … in this array to pass through the tunnel boring machine system of tunnels. In future galleries concreted walls of the tunnel, and then combine these into a single structure adit tunnel.

05. If I'm not confused — this is the grouting solution from which creates an array of horizontal piles.

15. In the center of the sinking of the control unit (PMU). Nondescript one-story building in the middle of construction, which, if it were not for the inscription on it, you can easily be taken for building huts. But it's actually the brain: hence controlled the entire construction process.

16. In the subway tunnels and automotive, as well as on stilts has special sensors that monitor for any abnormalities. If somewhere starts the slightest hint of what or offset measures are taken immediately: optional attachment, piles, adjusted the drilling process.

Well, now shemki and maketiki which were found in abundance in
the Information Center SZH.

23. So will the chord

24. Here's a tunnel to be built at the intersection of the People's Militia and Berzarina. Now it is most likely the mirror (after the intersection at Tuhachevke, of course), at peak time associates indecent posture the entire street. Here you can see the first turn-around loop, and second railway line. Someone from those seen in the comments of bloggers dispute nafig need it, there is no traffic on it, why because of her build the tunnel. And so. Those who have no clue. This thread connects not that anyhow, and he Kurchatov Institute and one plant with the Moscow railway circle, and the traffic on it is even there. The 90's with no rarely see as the train slows down and zooms in while waiting to move retracts tail tube!

29. Sites that inetersovali me most of all — this is my neighborhood! A fragment of the chord from the Avenue Zhukova to Vershinin. What interested me here in the first place:
— A traffic light at the exit of a tunnel under Zhukov will be removed, 43rd trollebus will unfold on the viaduct has long been open;
— Traffic lights at Karamyshevskoy waterfront, which now accounts for tedious and long to unfold with the odd side of militias that would go on Zvenigorodka the center also will be removed, its outcome;
— The bridge at Gateway nobody will touch, it will be for local traffic, slightly to the side to build a cable-stayed bridge of the chord;
— By Tuhachevke traffic will not (true, I wonder how it will unfold 59y troll, I forgot to ask), for a turn will hinge on Berzarina, and militias have long been there;
— Transitions to Tuhachevke be elevated, because there can not be built underground because of communication, but they promise to build somewhere interesting from an architectural point of view of design, implement lifts, etc. see how this can be.
— Traffic lights at the Institute of Communications will replace an underground passage, and a few will be more in the direction of the October field.
— By militias will make dedicated lanes for RT;
— The distance from the edge of the driveway to the home will be not less than 10 meters in this area promise to plant trees;
— But the only noise barriers put in the Hospital of Ministry of Internal Affairs;
Especially for those who want to examine the details, clickable and leads to the image in the original resolution!

In general, we will wait when they open the tunnel and watch how the project will implement the chord.
The Info Center SZH assured that they accept any suggestions and answer any questions local residents and all who are not indifferent to this project. You can contact them through their website.
