4 Works In the Moscow Underground

Works In the Moscow Underground

Posted on November 28, 2011 by team

Moscow metro passengers were upset when they tried to use metro on the 19-20th of November. Despite the announcements people forgot about construction work at this line.  And they will be probaly surprised again on the 26-27 th of November.

Moscow metro line between Belorusskaya and Novokuznetskaya stations undergoes changes. Serious construction works are taking place there and in November, on 19-20 and 26-27  the traffic  will be stopped.  Stations Mayakovskaya, Tverskaya and Teatralnaya will be temporary closed for passengers.

At Teatralnaya station there are a lot of special mats for under point switch tray.

These mats are being loaded on a cart and delivered to the workplace.

At usual sectors special rail clips are being installed. This is a kind of boring job, but it can be done in the night time.

So that was done in the last time.

But what about point switches… It’s not that easy! To put the special vibroprotective mats under the breakstone you should block the train movement.

This was done twice.

After Bolshoi theatre opening its underground stage found itself near the Zamoskvoretskaya line tunnels. Despite the huge works on noise and vibration insulation done in the theatre building, it’s been decided to arrange the same works in the Metro line. Specialists think this can improve the theatre acoustics.

The party started…

It’s been said that vibroprotective clips can be installed in the nighttime, but to install vibroprotection at point switches you must take all the breakstone out of there, lay the mats and put the breakstone back. And not the old one, but new one!

As you can see there is no mechanization here. Just because it’s impossible! You take the crow, shovel and bucket. Plus vibration machine for tamping the breakstone.

First the breakstone should be taken out of tray. It is being moldered by crow and then put in the buckets with shovels.
