“RG” correspondents spent more than 7 hours to see in detail all the stations of the BCL KXan 36 Daily News

For “RG” editors, the native BKL station is “Savelovskaya”. For several years, everything around the station of the same name was blocked, construction exchange houses were everywhere, in the fall – slush and dirt, in general, it was boring. Many went to work on the “gray” line.

Here are just some of the facts about BCL:

– At one of the construction stages, a 20 km long section was simultaneously launched – 10 stations from Mnevniki to Kakhovskaya. This is the longest section of the Moscow metro, open in one day.

– The length of the BCL is 70 km. This is the longest metro ring in the world. The maximum speed allowed on it is 80 km/h.

– The length of the BKL tunnels is 143 km. This is more than the distance between Moscow and Serpukhov.

– 1 metro train per day on average will travel 450 km – like from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod.

– The weight of each sculpture at the CSKA station is 1.5 tons.

The most beautiful station of the BKL, in our opinion, is “Nagatinsky Zaton”. On the roof of its entrance canopy are thousands of non-ferrous metal plates that resemble fish scales. It is understandable: the metro here passes under the Moscow River. Also, this is the longest underground tunnel under water.

Looking at the mosaic-covered fish on the walls of the pathway, I am reminded of Mayakovsky’s ditty:

Near Moscow, the mole comrade opened his mouth to his ears. The electricity hums. Underground goes the tram.

And here pike open their mouths. Or whatever these fish are called, I don’t know for sure, I’m not a hunter.

The brightest station of the entire metro is Novatorskaya. Here, for the first time, glass was used in the decoration of the ceiling. And orange, three different shades. Thus, Moscow innovators are glorified, who give their name to both the street above and the metro station. The catchy design gives positive to every person who passes by. It is this metro station that is most illuminated, largely due to the effect of light reflection from the glass ceiling. So far, it is not very crowded, but in the near future the situation will change dramatically. Soon there will also be a transition to the Troitskaya line, which is already under construction. It will connect the remote settlements of New Moscow with the center.

Along the long southwestern section of the ring we come to another picturesque station – Michurinsky Prospekt. There is also a station with the same name on the “yellow” line. As I remember its construction. One was built by Russian contractors, and on the other side of the avenue, the Chinese corporation CRCC worked. There, during work, the flag of the People’s Republic was flown, and the entire staff was made up of Chinese, who traditionally dined on seasoned noodles with topping. This Asian team created a small underground corner of the PRC with Chinese painting which, as it turned out, goes well with the “Michurin” theme of vegetation.

The most incomprehensible station on the ring is Kuntsevskaya. The space here is narrow, from the columns to the tracks, well, a maximum of two meters. Architecturally, it looks sad, but as a means of transportation, this station is one of the most important in the metro. After all, two metro lines pass nearby – “blue” and “blue”, plus the MCD. Accordingly, it is necessary to redistribute the flow of passengers.

Also, if the Kuntsevskaya had not been built, the journey would have been too long. And in this case, an emergency exit is required. Therefore, we decided, if we are going to build, then a whole station, although not the most photogenic. However, here is an interesting detail – lamps-cylinders.

Now there are two metro stations near the Rizhsky railway station, including one on the BKL. And this is the most ultra-modern object in the entire ring. Since the first day the line was in operation, a unique installation has been put into operation here, showing the possibilities of high-speed mobile Internet. Part of the creative process of the visual range on the “flying carpet” screen was performed by a neural network. Since March 1, 122,000 passengers have seen it.

This is one of the visual symbols of the development of the most advanced technologies in Moscow transport. At first, the authorities wanted to install the facility for a while, but the passengers liked it very much, so they decided to leave it.

The main thing in BKL is not beauty, but the ability to build new routes. For example, to get to “Savelovskaya” from the same “Sokolniki”, you had to go through traffic jams for almost an hour or take the metro with one change.

But as monumental as our metro is, going an hour a day without sunlight is not easy. Now it is only 10 minutes from Sokolniki to us along the new ring. During construction, a giant refrigeration plant was installed on the site of the station hall; it was necessary to freeze the soil and groundwater to strengthen the monolithic structures. Now these “naked” tubes – structures that strengthen the tunnel arches – can be seen in detail by subway passengers. By the designers’ decision, they are open at this station and are located in the station concourse behind glass in the columns.

However, the builders of the metro did not forget about the picturesque either. In this regard, I especially like that the Kakhovskaya line is included in the BCL (they initially wanted to start the ring with it). In my imagination, she is as wild and mysterious as Butovskaya. At one time, I lived in the south of Moscow and very often switched from the “green” branch to this “turquoise” branch on Kashirskaya, which was Kakhovskaya, and now BKL. There was a kind of poetic halo. Yauza trains ran along the Kakhovskaya line with truly “nonsense and dim” light in the carriages.

Today this part of the LCL has changed. Instead of walls covered in white tiles, like hospital bathrooms that cannot be repaired, today there are expensive modern tiles, restored drawings and panels.
