4 Moscow Metro Central Stations to Close Saturday

The repair work follows a crash in the Moscow metro in 2014.

Four metro stations on the orange (Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya) line in central Moscow — Tretyakovskaya, Kitai-Gorod, Turgenevskaya, Sukharevskaya — will be closed on Saturday for track replacement work, the metro administration announced on its website.

The Kitai-Gorod station on the purple (Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya) line will be open as usual, as well as the Tretyakovskaya station on yellow (Kalininskaya) line.

Following a train derailment in July 2014 that resulted in the deaths of more than 20 people, several stations within the circle (Koltsevaya) line have been closed for an entire day at a time to conduct repair work.
