Work is being carried out on sections of Bolshaya Semenovskaya and Elektrozavodskaya streets, as well as in Projected passage No. 222.
The landscaping work near the Electrozavodskaya station of the Big Circle Line (BCL) of the metro is 80 percent completed, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Housing and Utilities and Improvement said Petr Biryukov.
The work is taking place on the sections of Bolshaya Semenovskaya and Elektrozavodskaya streets, in Projected passage No. 222. The specialists have already completed the main construction and installation work. It remains to install traffic lights, road signs, stop pavilions, apply markings and plant trees and shrubs.
In the Sokolinaya Gora area, the main and duplicate pedestrian approaches to the metro were put in order, new public spaces and small areas for short-term rest were organized, and the sidewalks were expanded.
“As part of the improvement, 2.3 kilometers of cable ducts were laid, which made it possible to move overhead lines underground and free the streets from wires. This will increase the safety and reliability of the operation of power transmission lines, ”said Pyotr Biryukov.
For a convenient passage of buses to the metro, the intersection on Elektrozavodskaya Street near the Electrozavodsky Bridge has been reorganized – a U-turn and an exit to the Preobrazhenskaya Embankment have appeared here.
For public transport passengers, two modern stopping pavilions will be erected, where they can hide from the weather and charge a mobile phone.
“More than 40 new lanterns and street lamps with energy-saving lamps will be installed in the improvement zone,” the deputy mayor added. – Particular attention is paid to landscaping the territory. By the end of autumn, it is planned to plant 12 trees and 60 shrubs, a lawn with a total area of eight thousand square meters.
The territory in front of the Moscow Polytechnic University in Projected passage No. 222 was also put in order. Before the start of work, it was used as a spontaneous parking lot. A view area with benches, green spaces and lighting was made in front of the university.
The work will be fully completed by the time the station is put into operation, which is scheduled for the end of this year.
