New stations of the metropolitan Butovskaya metro line: passengers are worried and delightedJanuary 30, 2017
In the Moscow metro, traffic is open on the new stage of the Butovskaya branch to the Bittsevsky Park station from “ul. Starokachalovskaya ”, also including the station“ Lesoparkovaya ”.
The observations of journalists showed that the commissioning of new metro stations did not lead to a stir among passengers. It is worth noting that the innovations to a certain extent pleased the passengers of the “gray”, fairly loaded line, but at the same time made them worry about the large number of people of the passengers of the “orange”, more free line.
The newly-born stage practically connected the Serpukhov-Timiryazevskaya and Kaluga-Riga lines of the Moscow metro.The authorities predict that the capacity of the Butovskaya line should increase by 70 percent, hourly missing not 9 thousand passengers, but 15.
On the Butovskaya line, the new section was intended to make life easier for passengers who use the Gray Line and to a certain extent distribute the flow of people. Meanwhile, observations show that there are currently few passengers transferring to the "orange" line from Butovo. However, sometimes fussy explorers rush into the deserted Novoyasenevskaya station at intervals, moving from the station called Bitsevsky Park. Many are initially frightened by the emptiness of the platforms, but then everything is evenly distributed over it, wanting to occupy a sitting position in the arriving train.
