In Kyiv, two more metro stations on the “blue” line will be closed due to repairs.
This was reported by RBC-Ukraine (Styler project) with reference to the Telegraph publication.
Repairs will begin on another section of the Obolonsko-Teremkovskaya line of the capital’s subway. This was announced by the deputy head of the Kiev Metro CP Dmitry Pinchuk.
“Due to physical wear and tear and the need to improve operational characteristics, the section of tunnels along the first main route of Pochayna and Taras Shevchenko requires a planned overhaul,” he said.
According to him, the company is purchasing design work. The site is subject to constant periodic supervision.
“The safety of train traffic and the safe transportation of passengers are ensured,” the top manager concluded.
Pinchuk said that KP specialists monitor and supervise the technical condition of metro facilities in accordance with current regulatory documentation.
Earlier, the head of the capital's subway, Viktor Braginsky, reported that there were problems on the section between the Taras Shevchenko (Podolsky district) and Pochayna (Obolonsky district) stations.
This tunnel was built back in the 1980s, and it was experimental, so this section has certain features. Braginsky explained that this section of the metro was planned to be closed in the summer of 2024 for major repairs.
Let us remind you that on December 8, 6 stations of the blue line were closed, from Demeevskaya to Teremki. A little later, shuttle train traffic was organized on this section.
