Moscow Metro Stations Closed for Repair Over May Holidays

The Troparyovo metro station in Moscow.

Several stations on the Moscow metro will be closed for repairs over the May holidays, the subway authorities said in a statement.

May 2: The Lermontovsky Prospekt and Zhulenbino stations — the last two stations on the south end of the Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya Line (Purple Line) — will be closed. Trains will run only between the Planernaya and Vykhino stations.

May 2, 3, 4: The Prospekt Vernadskogo, Yugo-Zapadnaya and Troparyovo stations — the last three stations on the city's Sokolnicheskaya Line (Red Line) — will be closed. Trains will run only between the Bulvar Rokossovskogo and Universitet stations.

In both cases, free buses labeled “M” will run between the stations. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
