Reverse train traffic started on the section Kurskaya-Kalanchyovskaya in Moscow
06 Июль 2021
At the beginning of July in Moscow the reverse traffic of the trains started on the construction site Kurskaya-Kalanchyovskaya – the D2 Line. On this site trains take turns one way from Nakhabino to Podolsk and back
In the central site of D2, since the beginning of July, we have started reverse train traffic. Trains run less frequent here – every 18 minutes. This has allowed us to maintain the diametrical routes while the infrastructure is being overhauled. Trains in both directions stop at the new platform of Kalanchevskaya station, which later will become one of the largest HUBS in Moscow. Thanks to the temporary above-ground bridge, passengers can move to the platform from the square where are located three railway stations - Leningradsky, Yaroslavsky and Kazansky. Reverse train traffic on this section will last a year - half a year less than the original time», – noted Maksim Liksutov, the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Transport.
Kurskaya-Kalanchyovskaya is one of the most difficult sections of the railway construction in Moscow: for more than a century this section has not been reconstructed, only maintained its working capacity. Without the global construction work that is taking place today, it won’t be possible to increase the number of trains on the D2 Line and to launch the future D4 Line. The goal of the reconstruction is to build 4 new tracks and create a large HUB at the Kalanchevskaya station. Moreover, to improve the quality of the local residents’ life, there will be installed noise protection screens and shameless tracks throughout the section, thus reducing the noise level from trains by 30%.
It was originally planned to complete a large-scale reconstruction of the site in 2025, however it has become possible to reduce this period by 1.5 years, until mid-2023.
