MOSCOW, January 2. /TASS/. Southwestern section of Moscow metro’s Sokolnicheskaya line between Universitet and Troparyovo stations will be closed through to January 6 owing to electrical and signal equipment works ahead of extension of the line to two newly built stations, Rumyantsevo and Salaryevo, the press service of the Moscow metropolitan system told TASS.
The service terminating at Troparyovo is expected to resume at 05:30 on January 6.
While the southwestern section of the line is out of operation, a provisional free bus route ‘M’ will be introduced between Universitet and Troparyovo, a spokesperson for Mosgorstans municipal transportation company said.
A total of 140 large-capacity busses will be cruising along the route ‘M’ from 05:45 through 01:45 the next day.
Moscow metropolitan system’s Director General, Dmitry Pegov told reporters earlier that Rumyantsevo and Salaryevo stations, both of them located in the territory of the so-called ‘New Moscow’ outside the Outer Automobile Ring Road, would be commissioned simultaneously in the first quarter of 2015.
Moscow metro executives have asked the customers to treat the temporary inconveniences caused by the current works at the Sokolnicheskaya line with understanding.
