After the planned launch of the Golyanovo station on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line of the Moscow metro, most residents of the northern and eastern blocks will be able to get to the metro much faster. Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin revealed the details in his personal blog.
According to him, a site was chosen to locate the station in the center of the district on Ussuriyskaya Street, near the adjoining Sakhalinskaya Street. After the start of its work, most residents of the northern and eastern quarters of Golyanovo will be able to get to the metro in 10-15 minutes on foot, or after traveling a couple of stops by bus, the head of the city announced.
Sobyanin noted that the launch of the station will make Moscow closer to 230 thousand local residents, and in total, about 40 new stations are planned to be launched in the capital’s metro construction in the coming years.
