That's a rather pretty building, and it looks like it was useful. Why are they no longer using it? Seems rather sad to me.

Lack of funding and technical miscalculations led this escalator gallery to be abandoned. And it was very useful, as it directly connects station with Kosygina St. At the moment you can go up either using park paths or by cable car

The escalator gallery was closed in 1988 when nearest Metro station "Leninskiye Gory" ("Lenin Hills"), that now is "Vorobyovy Gory" ("Sparrow Hills") on the lower level of Metro bridge was closed for long reconstruction (1983-2002) due to mistakes in projecting of bridge. The official reason for closing of escalator gallery was landslide of hill slope, but de-facto it was closed due to financial reasons.

This is episode with Sophia Loren from Soviet-Italian drama film "Sunflower" (1970). It was filmed by Vittorio De Sica in this escalator gallery.

"Park paths or by cable car" - that's pretty far away. There is a way up east of the bridge. Isn't short either, but much closer to station.

Hello there, I'm curious to know about something.

In the above pictures, I noticed that the stations were being built using the cut and cover method. Are all stations including the deep stations built this way?
Or are the deep underground stations built using NATM while only shallow stations use cut and cover?

To clarify-those are the ones on the current extensions being built with NATM, correct?

And there are other NATM-built stations on older lines too?

Shallow tunnels are being built using TBMs. Shallow stations are being built using open, cut and cover, method. Some deep stations are being built using open, cut and cover, method as well. Some, as listed above, are being built using closed method. Some deep tunnels, where TBMs are not applicable, are being built using drilling and blasting method, like Dmitrovsky radius.

NATM is not being used in Moscow, afaik.

I'm not very knowledgeable about the techniques used for construction of closed stations. Do they built the station into hard rock? (to prevent collapse during construction) or can it be done even for relatively softer terrain?

Thanks for the info.

By the way, how is Moscow's timing regarding the construction of new stretches/extensions in the past few years? Like for a given amount of kilometres, how long do they take to complete construction?

Softer layers are less stable. So yes, when there is no place for shallow, cut and cover, station, deep stations are placed in more stable layers. So Dmitrovsky and Timiryazevsky radiuses has been built in deep harder layers.

2 to 5 years.
