Moscow Metro's Red Line Partially Closed on August 23

Several stops on the Sokolnicheskaya line of Moscow's metro will be off limits on Saturday, Aug. 23, for repair works.

All stops on the Red Line between Komsomolskaya in the north of the city and Park Kultury in the south will be shut down for the day, starting from midnight on Saturday until 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, according to a statement on the metro's official website.

The statement recommends using above-ground transportation as an alternative that day, adding that arrangements have been made to ensure that buses and marshrutkas run more frequently than usual to accommodate for the increased passenger load.

The stations to be shut down for the day include Krasnye Vorota, Kropotkinskaya, Chistiye Prudy, Lubyanka, Okhotny Ryad, and Biblioteka Imeni Lenina.
