On June 3, Moscow Metro updated its system, with the opening of 8 stations and 1 line. With the length of nearly 7 km, the Nekrasovskaya Line comprises of 4 stations: Kosino, Ulitsa Dmitrievskogo, Lukhmanovskaya and Nekrasovka. The new line is to decrease the passenger load on the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line (Line 7) and traffic load on the road infrastructure in the South-East area of the city.
On June 20, with opening of Filatov Lug, Prokshino, Olkhovaya and Kommunarka, the Sokolnicheskaya Line (Line 1) – first line built – was extended to the southwest area, connecting Novomoskovsky Administrative District and significantly improving the urban mobility. This section of the Sokolnicheskaya Line (Line 1) is the first one in Moscow, built along with the highway. At the crossing site, there is a tunnel that has both roads and rail tracks. Its length is 2 km.
With new entrance gates, the Nekrasovskaya Line has decreased the passenger load on the busiest station Vykhino by 25%.
It’s worth mentioning that Moscow Metro continues the tradition to build its station resembling underground palaces. The new stations have unique design and original decoration.
Passengers living in Kosino district, are very proud of the main local attraction – three lakes: White, Black and Saint Lakes. That’s why the architectures decided to adorn the station’s ceiling with polished triangles that remind of the water surface of the Lakes.
Nekrasovka station is adorned with pearl and white ceramic faced pillars, while the lights built in the walls and ceiling, imitate the night sky. The floor is decorated with geometrical patterns.
Surface station Filatov Lug is constructed with the application of natural and artificial stone, composition, glass and colored metal. Showcases with live plants were installed on the station’s platform for the first time.
Subsurface station Kommunarka has an island platform and one underground hall. The main station decoration is gridded lamps in the middle of the ceiling. Kommunarka is a terminus station of the first line of Moscow Metro.
