Last fall, the first passengers were taken to the Zhulebino and Lermontovsky Prospect stations. The metro in this direction has stepped beyond the Moscow ring road and has arrived in remote distant neighborhoods. What preceded this?
A brief history excursion
The transport situation in the south-east of Moscow was quite tense in the Soviet era. Residents of the capital's suburbs often felt second-class Muscovites. But in recent years the situation has worsened in a limiting way. This is associated with both an increase in traffic flows, leading to peak traffic paralysis on all major highways, and to the general remoteness of large residential areas from the center of the capital. The inconsistency of the transport infrastructure has been a brake on the development of the Vykhino and Zhulebino areas. Attempts to solve the transport problem were made in Soviet times, but they were expressed only in the development of a feasibility study on extending the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya line in the south-east direction. But no real action was undertaken in those years. Muscovites and guests of the capital were still very hard to get to such streets as Lermontovsky Avenue. The metro appeared here only a few months ago. And this event can not be underestimated.
Moscow. Metro "Lermontovsky Prospect"
The commissioning of the launch section of the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya metro line to the Zhulebino station in the fall of 2013 was a landmark in the development of the transport infrastructure of the entire Moscow Southeast. Construction of distillation tunnels and stations was not easy. The question of when the Lermontovsky Prospect metro station would open was of interest not only to the residents of this street, but also to the inhabitants of all the surrounding neighborhoods. The opening of the metro station would allow the residents of Zhulebino to reach the center of the capital in no more than half an hour. But putting it into operation was postponed several times. The construction of the metro station "Lermontovsky Prospect" was fraught with a number of difficulties, both technical and financial. The project of the line and its binding to the terrain features and quarterly planning were repeatedly revised and updated. Big problems, in particular, arose in July 2013 at a distillation tunnel going in the direction of the Vykhino station. He was flooded over a large distance due to the breakthrough of groundwater. This difficult area was the old Kosinsky swamp. The metro builders have successfully overcome the difficulties that have arisen on their way.
Without the slightest exaggeration of historical date can be considered the date of November 9, 2013. On this day, the metro station "Lermontovsky Prospect" took the first passengers. A metro train delivered them to the Taganskaya Square area at the interchange hub of the Koltsevaya Line and then to the northeast of the capital. This day is significant because the residents of Vykhino-Zhulebino microdistricts located behind the Ring Road, have ceased to feel like outcasts, cut off from life in the capital. For many, the way to work and back has become within one hour. And you can go with comfort, not looking at traffic jams.
Station "Lermontovsky Avenue". High-tech metro
Let's take a closer look at what is a new station in architectural terms. It is rather unusual in its design concept. In many European cities, especially in countries located on the Scandinavian Peninsula, this style of decorative interior decoration is not so rare. But within the Moscow metro it had not been distributed before. Art historians define this style with the term hi-tech. It is characterized by simplicity and expressiveness of lines and volumes. As well as the brightness of the decorative design. By its constructive type, this is a single-arched spacious shallow station. From there you can get to Khvalynsky Boulevard and, of course, to Lermontovsky Prospect itself.
Prospects for further development
Despite the commissioning of the station, its construction has not yet been fully completed. This applies to both the finishing works and the further development of the Lermontovsky Prospect station. Subway continues to be built. And in the near future this station will be a transfer station. It will be used to transfer to the Kosino station of the Kozhukhovskaya line. In operation, it will enter according to preliminary calculations in December 2015. The Kozhukhovskaya line is currently being actively constructed. In addition, the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya line will be further developed in the south-east direction. It will continue to one hundred.
What's new in Vykhino and Zhulebino?
The commissioning of new metro stations radically changed the quality of life of the former Moscow suburbs. In Vykhino and Zhulebino, new perspectives for the development of the economy, industry, business and commercial life were clearly delineated. The presence of modern transport infrastructure has made these areas much more attractive for both ordinary residents and business people. This is evidenced even by analytical reviews of the development of demand for real estate. Real estate agencies represent its significant growth. More in demand have become both residential premises in the southeast, as well as commercial areas. There are more people choosing, in the past, not a popular Zhulebino for permanent residence.
