4 Metro Stations in Central Moscow to Close Saturday

Four metro stations on the Orange (Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya) Line — Tretyakovskaya, Kitai-Gorod, Turgenevskaya and Sukharevskaya — will be closed Saturday for track maintenance work, the metro administration announced in an online statement Wednesday.

The Kitai-Gorod metro station on the Purple (Tagansko-Krasnopresnenskaya) Line will be open as usual, as well as Tretyakovskaya on the Yellow (Kalininskaya) Line.

In order to reduce any inconvenience caused by the closure, Moscow authorities will increase the number of trolleybuses on the streets around Sukharevskaya metro station, the statement said.

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.
