Moscow Metro Central Stations to Close Saturday

Several central stations on the Dark Green Line will be closed Saturday.

Three metro stations on the Dark Green (Zamoskvoretskaya) Line in central Moscow — Teatralnaya, Tverskaya and Mayakovskaya — will be closed all day Saturday for track maintenance work, the metro announced on its website.

Two metro stations on the Purple (Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya) Line, Zhulebino and Lermontovsky Prospekt, will also be closed on Saturday, the metro said, while work continues to connect new station Kotelniki to the line.

In order to improve metro infrastructure, several stations within the Circle (Koltsevaya) Line have been closed for an entire day at a time to conduct necessary repair work. These measures come in the wake of last July's train derailment that resulted in the deaths of more than 20 people.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Novokuznetskaya and Belorusskaya stations would also be closed. They will in fact be open for passengers traveling away from the center and changing onto other lines.

… 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.
