The closure of the station Myakinino-Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya line of the Moscow metro entails traffic jams in the Krasnogorsk district, but local authorities are doing everything to avoid it. The head of the Krasnogorsk district Mikhail Sapunov wrote on his page in Instagram.
On Tuesday Vice-Governor of Moscow region Natalia Virtuoso said that the head of the region Andrei Vorobyov will not allow the closure of the station “Myakinino”. For the virtualboy, the Governor called on the Moscow metro and the Crocus Group to find a solution to the current problem.
That the station “Myakinino”, located near shopping, exhibition and business center “Crocus Expo” 65-66 km Moscow ring road, will be closed from August 22 for an indefinite period, the press service of the Moscow metro, reported on 16 August. The reason for this decision, the Metropolitan called the impossibility of compliance with the law “On transport security” at the station because of not resolved property and land relations between the company Crocus Group, acting as the investor of construction of the station, and the Moscow metro. In the message the metro the Crocus Group was named the owner of the station “Myakinino”.
For its part, the owner of Crocus Group Araz Agalarov told TASS that the operation of the station carries out the Moscow metro, it also makes the collection of money and the transportation of passengers. The employee of the press service of Crocus Group said, the company is neither a contractor nor a client station, and the only investor.
The representative of the Moscow metro stated that the closure of the station occurred due to failure of the Crocus Group of its obligations under the registration established by the law of basic documents for putting the station into operation after construction. On Wednesday on the website of the Moscow metro was taken by a message, which indicates that the Crocus Group warned about the necessity of obtaining permission to enter “Myakinino” in 2013 and 18 July 2016 the development company was notified about the possible closure of the station.
Aras Agalarov, in turn, described the situation as a bureaucratic casuistry. According to him, the conclusion about compliance of the project documentation gives the RTN, and not the regional Department management, and Metropolitan. However, the station is located outside the office of Moscow, so the Moscow Department of the Rostekhnadzor “can’t give [the conclusion] in the region”.
Agalarov also warned that the closure of the station “Myakinino” will cause the Pavshinskaya Poyma will be left without transport.
