Lomonossovsky prospect station construction site

All the shots were taken with my cell phone, a Xiaomi MiTwo.




Right close to the main plot there'd been a quite bad accident between two 4WD... There were many spectators, workers at the plot, too.



... потому среди зевак, смотрящих на раскуроченный "Аутлендер" были и строители метро.



Near the bus terminus



Main plot.







The future station itself. Not very common to hear the calm but actually all the workers were a bit farther.









The Outlander with no frontal part.



Excavating and removing communal network near Shuvalovsky residential complex.

This night it snowed a lot and it has been snowing in some parts of the city.

So, on Lomonosovsky prospect station construction site there were much less people working. But there has come a new machinery unit. What is this, by the way?

There are Chinese characters on the crane, is the construction contracted to the Chinese?

No, only Russian construction companies are taking part in Metro building (from Moscow and other Russian cities). However, there are talks about possible participation of specialists from Ukraine, Belarus and Spain.

Originally this station was designed to be a part of an express high-speed line for 200 m long trains. But later project was just butchered in favor traditional metro, just to build it as classical line instead for their populist reason (get any kind of a metro in neighbourhood, but quicker)... It's a shame that such a marvellous and ambitious project was neglected for short-termed political interests.

Is there a separate thread about this new project? or some other website with information, preferably in English off-course, but google translate is our best friend.

It's is hard to say that with all the developments around the Moscow metro, that a lot of short term politics is involved.

Current Volokolamskaya is the completely new project developed on the ruins of old construction site. The construction and architecture project was completely redesigned, it doesn't have anything from the old project besides of the place of construction.
