Moscow Metro's Dark Blue Line Central Stations to Close Saturday

Three central stations on the Dark Blue Line of Moscow's metro — Smolenskaya, Arbatskaya and Ploshchad Revolyutsii — will be closed on Saturday for track repairs.

The trains will run as usual from Kievskaya metro station to Pyatnitskoye Shosse and from Kurskaya to Shchyolkovskaya, the metro's press service said in a statement Wednesday.

The stations will reopen at 5.30 a.m. on Sunday.

Moscow metro stations have started to have regular closures for repairs ever since a deadly accident on the Dark Blue Line in July 2014. As a result of the incident, 24 people were killed and 188 injured.
