A major renovation is in full swing both above and below the surface of Russia’s capital. Three new stations have already opened in the Moscow metro since January, and 14 more are due to open by the end of this year.
The new Ochakovo station will be a continuation of the existing yellow  Kalinisko-Solntsevskaya line. It will be located in the south-west of Moscow near Ochakovo ponds, which inspired the future design of the station. Architects plan to decorate it with a water-lily theme.
By the end of the year the authorities also plan to finish the construction of a new station on the lime Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line. The future Verkhniye Likhobory station will be located in the north of Moscow, enabling around 80,000 people to use it daily.
A new station will also open on the territory of the Khodynskoye Pole park in the north of Moscow. It will provide direct access to the nearby Megasport Arena, one of the largest sports venues in Moscow. The future CSKA station will naturally have a “sporty” look and allow 120,000 people to commute there daily.
The western part of Moscow will also see the appearance of a new underground station.  It will be named after the local Borovskoye Shosse (highway) and will cater for the 35,000 residents of Novoperedelkino and Solntsevo districts.
Okruzhnaya station on the lime Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya line is planned to open by the end of the year and is aimed at lowering the traffic on Dmitrovskoye Shosse in the north of Moscow. It will be decorated with marble and granite in the style of the Savelovskaya railway that runs nearby.
A new station will open near Dinamo station, which currently struggles to cope with the passenger traffic. The future Petrovsky Park station will allow more than 245,000 people to commute daily and is set to become part of a new line from here to Delovoy Tsentr. The future station will be decorated with gray and black granite and white and green marble from the Urals.
