Third progress of the construction of the Moscow subway interchange circuit (PHOTOS)

A third interchange circuit (TPC) — a new line under construction of the Moscow Metro. The first interchange circuit transplants are considered within the Circle Line, the second — the very ring line, well, the third interchange circuit is being built now. TPK connect peripheral areas of Moscow and will allow passengers to perform transplants without going to the city center. Thus, unload the Metro station and the Circle Line ridership drop on radial branches.

A third interchange circuit is constructed plots — chords that eventually merge into the ring. First uchastok5 stations — Station "Lower Maslivka" station "Business Center" — will open in 2015:

  • TPK-2015
  • TPK-2015

 Initially, all the stations of the site TPK were designed as deep-level station. Due to the general contractor engineering solutions SMU "Ingeocom" managed "bump" 4 of 6 stations — "Peter Park," "Khodynka", "Khoroshevskaya" and "Shelepiha." These stations will be constructed shallow and open way. Such stations are less expensive on average, and are built much faster. In addition, the portion could change tracing lines, reducing the length of 600 meters. All together it will save about 3.5 billion budget.

1. So it will look like station "Khodynka" by the architects.
It is planned that for the safety of passengers railroad tracks will be separated from the platform by special transparent structures:

2. Pit for the station "Khodynka" practically built. The station will provide outputs to the residential areas and the Palace of Sports "Megasfera":

3. Built a site for station tracks, works on arrangement of platforms.
By the way, in the space above the station being "Khodynka" planned deployment of the Metropolitan Museum, which is currently located at the station "Sports":

4. Underground tunnels are being built with the help of mechanized tunnel boring systems (TBM). With shields destroyed underground soil, broken ground on a conveyor served on trolleys, elevated tunnel lining (laying the tubing), held void concreting, waterproofing, as well as other ancillary operations are performed:

8. Average speed boards — 250-300m per month, the average price of a shield — 13-15 million euros:

9. On the site TPK is already working shield, which paves the tunnels of the station "Khodynka" towards the station "Khoroshevskaya." He came on for about a kilometer away and disappeared around the corner:

10. Two other board started this week. Tunnel Complex "Natalie" started construction of the second tunnel to the station "Khoroshevskaya":

11. A shield "Maria" began building a tunnel to the station, "Peter Park":
